All Blacks Gym Session

Here’s a nice video of an All Blacks gym session. Although not soccer, it’s nice to see this level of intensity in the gym and the appropriate use of technology to test, motivate and monitor players. In the video, the players are doing a banded bench press using Gym Aware technology. Although I question the accuracy of the readings using a band of unregulated / varying tension the readings are probably still reliable and a good motivator and test measure.
