Returning to Contact from Inactivity

Our PROTECHT Sport Scientists have examined the verified impacts in our data base and used this to quantify match demands in professional rugby. By applying science utilised for incremental loading in running and adapting this to contact, we are able to give guidance on a safe return to training following the unique challenges presented by the enforced lockdown due to COVID-19. This includes some exercises players can do within the confinements of lockdown that will provide residual contact stimulus and enable players to reenter contact scenarios in a safer way.
