    Football Fitness Training Program & Exercises

    Football Fitness Training Program & Exercises
    << Previous Part 12 Next Part >> We can’t make you bend it like Beckham, but we can add speed, power and bulletproof knees to help your beautiful game via our Football Fitness Program / (or) Programme

    When we first came up with a focused Football Fitness programme designed specifically for football or soccer players (if you read this in American) many people couldn’t understand why, after all, we are strength and conditioning specialists and Football apparently doesn’t seem to be about either of those qualities however if you think about it we think you will realize that it actually is. And just as Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger weaned the English game off its post match pint of beer or ten, so too are we making inroads in advising leading football clubs on football fitness which is essential to get their most valuable commodities into their best shape possible. After all, if you take two equally skilled players and make one of them healthier, faster and stronger, which one will perform better and for longer?

    There are many myths surrounding Football Fitness Training programmes, many of which are discussed in our article “Improving upon Perfection: Could Zizou have been an even better player?!”, but it should be very obvious to budding Premiership stars that the right coaching for football fitness success should address the following issues:

    1) Speed and Agility Training

    Speed is King in so many sports. What do they say of has-been footballers? “His legs have gone”. Focused and intelligent resistance training is partly responsible for the fastest men and women in the world, and yet we have found that footballers simply throw in a few sets and reps here in there, preferring to run endless drills instead. A smart footballer will want to develop non linear, explosive power so that he can change direction, angle, and velocity in a fraction of a second. The absolute cast iron guaranteed best way to acquire this ability is via a programme of resistance and plyometric training. And when all is said and done have you ever heard of a coach dropping a player because he is too fast?!

    2) Maximum Endurance

    A well conditioned athlete should never run out of gas during a game. Smart pre game nutritional protocols and training that develops BOTH explosive power and long range fitness are the keys to top performance.

    3) Postural alignment

    Many footballers exhibit limiting postural imbalances. Do you play with guys with rounded shoulders and heads tilted forward? If so, they are an accident waiting to happen. A good football fitness programme always includes corrective exercises to maximize your body’s ability to perform at a safe and optimal level.

    4) Muscle imbalance correction and injury prevention

    The human body is a single system, not just a series of muscles. It doesn’t matter how powerful your strongest muscles are as it’s the weakest link that determines your performance as an athlete whatever your sport. In football particular emphasis MUST be placed on strengthening the vastus medialis muscle of the lower thigh (the muscle that sits over your knee on the inside of your leg). Although this is quite a simple muscle to train via a variety of exercises such at the Petersen step up, it has historically been a huge area of neglect for football players. Why the muscle that has the key responsibility for maintaining knee integrity has been so long ignored by traditional soccer coaches is entirely beyond our comprehension. Think of Michael Owen’s knee buckling under him at the 2006 World Cup and you can think of several million reasons (£!) why strengthening the vastus medialis should be a top priority for all footballers who ever make lateral movements (such as evading tackle, sidestepping, or even just quickly changing direction!).

    5) Optimal Body Composition

    Effective body composition comes down to just one thing – if you’re not using it you should be losing it! A spare tyre will only slow you down and no one but Gazza ever loved hearing “who ate all the pies”! Indeed the best footballers in the world are no longer just lean and lithe, they are also strong and powerful.

    A more muscular player is a stronger player, and a stronger player is a hell of a lot more difficult to deal with! Didier Drogba, Fernando Torres, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney – all powerful Footballers who terrorise their opponents in part due to their upper body strength.

    6) Strength Improvements

    When all else is equal, the stronger player always wins out. The key in any Football Fitness Training Programme or Exercise is to develop the "real world" strength that can be translated onto the football field. This is easily done with the right Football Fitness Training, but please kiss goodbye to any of those multigyms that far too many footballers have wasted hours of their time on.

    7) Post Match Recovery and Nutritional support

    The bottom line here is that stronger, healthier and fitter footballers play more games and have more opportunities to succeed. If you can recover faster, you can train harder, play more consistently and be a winner more often. The body does not respond merely to Football Training – it responds to recovery from Football Fitness Training.
