Abstract

The purpose of this study was to conduct a performance enhancement over the course of twelve weeks with an amateur rugby player who is currently looking to participant again after taking three years out of the game. Throughout the performance enhancement the researcher aimed to improve the participant’s muscular strength as well as increasing the participant’s fat free mass whilst using daily undulating periodisation. A three repetition maximum test took place in the back squat, bench press and deadlift along with a bioelectrical impedance test and anthropometrical measurements. The back squat, bench press and deadlift improved by 45kg, 20kg and 47.5kg respectively, while fat free mass increased 2.9kg. Chest, thigh and arm girth also increased 5, 4 and 2cm however, fat mass increased 0.6kg. It is possible to conclude that the use of daily undulating periodisation can not only increase strength but can also increase fat free mass simultaneously and help improve future performances in the game of rugby union.
