Non Touring Warriors Build For Next Season

ImageWhile Warriors were touring with the various Scotland squads or other national teams over the summer, some of the guys were left back in Glasgow to do the hard yards and start building towards next season.
_
For these Glasgow players there was no sojourn to Argentina, North America or one of the Antipodes as they stayed behind and put in hours of strength and conditioning training.
_
After three and a half weeks of rest, players such as Daryl Gibson, Richie Vernon and Lome Fa"atau got down to Warriors HQ at Whitecraigs and started back in the gym._
_
Since 9 June the players have been at work six days a week doing the strength and conditioning that is a requirement of every top rugby player.

Head Fitness Coach Garry Sheriff feels that this can only be a benefit for players and Glasgow. Sheriff said: 'these guys should be at an advantage and in better condition.

"How much progress they have made depends how much they enjoyed their time off, but it's money in the bank"_
_
With the players spending so much time in training Sheriff feels that it is always good to give them something different to do.
_
So far the Warriors, amongst other things, have been playing a spot of speed golf - the high intensity version of the typically leisurely game involves sprinting, rather than strolling,_ between shots - some gymnastics, climbing and for a bit of rest, playing bowls.
_
If the work that has been put in by the non touring Warriors is anything to go by then next season should see the team pushing all the way for success in the Magner's League and Heineken Cup.
