In this episode I had the privilege of speaking with Wasps Rugby senior strength and conditioning coach, Tom Mclaughlin. I have already had Andy Titterrell on the podcast, who works at Wasps, in episode 4 and after speaking with Andy he said I had to get Tom on as he’s doing such an amazing job with the players.

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who is Tom McLaughlin and how he got to where he is today
  • Training methods used at Wasps
  • Monitoring wellness and recovery in rugby union
  • Aerobic vs anaerobic training for rugby
  • The journey of a young rugby player at Wasps
  • How other sports can be used to develop an all-round athlete
  • Tom’s thoughts on the recent Mark Rippetoe article
