Ireland outhalf Ian Madigan has revealed the daily routine he and his team mates go through while in camp at Carton House.

The meticulous level of detail that Joe Schmidt and his management team go into is amazing.

From tracking sleep patterns, to appetite and general wellbeing, each player is dealt with individually so that he can perform at his best for the collective.

"Life in camp is pretty hectic. You're day is filled," Madigan told Off The Ball on Newstalk.

You get up at 8-9 and the first thing we have to do is fill out an online questionnaire and complete a few tests on how we're feeling and how we slept the night before, what are appetite is like and we have to complete some flexibility tests and that basically lines up our day for training.

"You go and have your breakfast and then usually do a gym session and we're divided up into three groups.

"The front five, the middle five and the back five usually train together.

"In the afternoon, we'd have a team meeting on what we have to do in the pitch session.

"In the evening you might have another team meeting.

"It's been my most enjoyable pre-season because everything is laid on for you. You don't have to worry about buying food.

"You can turn into a bit of a lazy slob."
