September 13, 2018
With the AFL and NRL finals in full swing, there are more stats than ever floating around, and stats surrounding work rate and effort are particularly interesting. But how important is work rate for a football team, or does it just mean you are spending a lot of energy chasing your opponent on defence? Today Durham and Jacob discuss the pros and cons of a high work rate and how to best train in order to make sure your fitness is ready when pre-season starts.

And importantly make sure you are respecting and paying close attention to your acute to chronic workload ratio.
