Wales fitness guru Andy Hore


Keeping fit also means looking after your diet.

So you might be surprised to learn we actually encourage the players to eat chewy lollies.

But only after a match of course!

They give you a quick fix of carboydrates that get into your bloodstream quickly and help aid your recovery.

Before a match, players are encouraged to eat meals that are high in carbohydrates.

And immediately after a match they will have a milkshake and some fruit.

Within an hour of the match finishing they eat a cooked meal.
