MBABANE – Flipping a truck tyre completes rugby player Sibusiso ‘Skuta’ Dlamini’s training programme.

He said without flipping the tyre or lifting it up, he felt his training was not complete. The Malkerns Vondo’s Rugby Club hooker said continuous training was what had kept him going under the partial lockdown due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Dlamini owns a tyre in the gym room and it helps him stretch his body, build biceps and other muscles almost all over the body. He trains six times a week, only resting on Saturdays. He said during the week he also did road running to boost his stamina.
“I use a tyre to improve my posture, develop functional strength and build massive biceps,” he said.

Dlamini said 2020 was supposed to be a good year for their club in terms of playing international matches. He said they were due for two trips outside the country.

“Even now we still cannot believe that everything came to a standstill after the coronavirus outbreak. The teams had lot of plans for the year as we were due to travel and play in Lesotho and Mozambique, but all those plans had to be called off,” he said.

Dlamini said as players, they would have to continue training individually until government allowed group training. He said they missed training together, especially in the field of play.

“Life comes first and we must all stay positive and make sure that we do the right things that will see the world going back to its normal. Before the COVID-19 outbreak, we were training together as a team and we really enjoyed that,” he added.
