Video: The Irish Rugby Team Hit The Gym

We brought you that disgraceful picture of Cian Healy deadlifting the weight of a small car yesterday, now check out the rest of the Irish Rugby in their preparations.

The squad getting themselves ready for a what promises to be a tough encounter with the Italians.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

Plyometrics, movement speed work, jump work and some heavy loaded lifting – all in a day’s work for the Ireland squad as they hit the gym at Surrey Sports Park. Strength and conditioning coach Jason Cowman and Ireland centre Darren Cave talk us through the session.
