    It's a test of determination, stamina, nerve. By thinking of quitting you may have exposed yourself as "fairweather". If you want to make the team you have to show it, especially in "adversity"...

    "Overload" Ahhh, what a wonderful word to use in rugby training...

    Believe me, it is very useful, it just pushes you to improve your fitness, insteasd of stagnating. Take it from someone who knows.

    It's not punishing you because you've done something wrong. It's seeing how much physical "punishment" (in a non-S&M way) your body and mind can take.

    Are you sure he said 5 seconds and not 5 minutes? It's easy to hold out for 5 seconds. If you haven't done as much training as the other guys (or regular enough), then maybe you'd find it difficult. If your teacher doesn't know that then that could be why you feel like he's punishing you. You can do exercises at home, start off small, then work your way up (like 10 press ups to 20 to 50 to 100 - 100 is enough). Try cycling as well. I used to be average at the bleep test (like 7-8). After a summer of cycling, I beat the form.

    Anyway, even if you dont do as well as some people, you get better the more you practice.
