Great Information from a Great Coach

I have worked with TJ for a few years now, and I’ve never found someone else who has as much good training information as him, whether it’s conditioning, strength, or diet. He brings all this knowledge to his podcasts. If you’re serious about being a better rugby player, or even just want to improve your fitness, you cannot do better than this.

Time-Deaf Narcissistic

When I found the rugby muscle podcast I was excited to have found a rugby specific podcast that discussed professional play alongside training tips for amateur players.

Unfortunately after subscribing to the newsletter and listening to further podcast, I have found TJ to be a very narcissistic individual with a tone-deaf message.

The breaking point for me was when he sent an unsolicited email about his services berating another subscriber for not having the funds to partake in his services. (In the middle of a global pandemic no less)

I would suggest looking elsewhere for rugby content.
