INDOOR bike specialist Wattbike has strengthened its relationship with the RFU by naming Leicester Tigers and England forward Tom Youngs as an ambassador.
He said: “The Wattbike has been instrumental in helping me through my rehabilitation and preparation for major events.
“The bike has really improved my power output, a key factor in rugby, and will form a key piece of training kit in my preparations for this year; in fact the whole team will be using them in the warm ups and recovery sessions.”
As part of the continued agreement, England Rugby will take delivery of 30 bikes across a three year period. The Wattbike has formed a crucial part of the elite England Rugby strength and conditioning training programme, with players using the bike for rehabilitation, recovery and key aerobic and anaerobic training.
England’s forwards coach Graham Rowntree added: “The Wattbike does so much more than any other training tool, its accuracy, reliability and consistency in regards to training data are all extremely specific which is great for sport specific training and making comparisons between the team.”
