|Weighing it all up|
|Around the Academy:
We've also drafted in an expert to help the players improve their strength.
Weightlifter Rhodri Thomas has represented Wales at the Commonwealth Games, and he's been helping them with their gym techniques.
For junior players I would recommend resistance training instead.
This includes things like press ups and sit ups.
Medicine balls and Swiss balls are also great for improving coordination, strength and stamina.
We've used them a lot during our fitness sessions.
But it's important the players aren't couped up in the gym all the time.
They're also encouraged to go out on their bikes, go for a jog or to the swimming pool.
This gives them variety and keeps them fit too.
