It's easy to see why Conor Murray has become one of the best scrum-halves in the world. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail they say? It looks like Murray adopts that attitude in order to keep himself one step ahead of his rivals.

Watch as MaxiNutrition brand ambassador Murray goes beyond what is expected even of a professional athlete. While most of his fellow professionals are resting and recovering from their busy training schedules, Murray likes to squeeze in a few individual sessions to keep him sharp and ready for upcoming games.

Catch a sneak peak of the Munster, Ireland and Lions scrum-half working on his world renowned speed and explosive power through a series of drills on a freezing cold Portmarnock Beach in Dublin.

Conor cites this first five meters as "the time you have to be most efficient and most explosive as a scrum half, so thats why it's a huge part of my game and a huge part of my training".

The motivation as to why he puts himself through this extra training comes from a deep seated desire to be better than his closest competitors. "There are definitely days when you are not motivated to get out of bed and train, your body might be sore, you might be tired. I always think about my opposition or some one I want to be better than in another team or within my team that I know is probably up or I know would get out of bed and do that."

Ireland’s leading sports nutrition brand, MaxiNutrition is fuelling Conor Murray to be at his best in 2015, For more information, visit MaxiNutrition.com.
