Activate - Injury Prevention
“Activate” is the RFU’s Injury Prevention Exercise Programme, which can be incorporated into training and pre-match sessions. These exercises are formulated to enhance functional and core strength, balance, and agility, aiding players in coping with the physical requirements of the sport.
Engaging in Activate exercises on a regular basis can achieve the following:
- Enhance playing performance.
- Prepare players for the physical challenges of the game.
- Lower the likelihood of injury, including concussion, and assist in post-injury rehabilitation.
- Increase player availability, as fewer players are sidelined due to injuries.
