Soccer Fitness's Holy Grail: Cardio Training

Coaches often send their soccer players out for steady state runs. This is a common practice. Overuse injuries, muscle pulls and overuse injuries have been common issues that I have seen in the clinic.

These are the reasons why I say –

Avoid cardio training for soccer fitness

* A typical Cardio training program trains the body how to become slower, weaker or more injured

* Typical Cardio is a way to avoid the full range movement that can occur in a soccer tournament.

* It is boring to do cardio training. Would a 10-14 or 18-year-old soccer player want to spend 30 minutes running when they could be honing their skills?

* A typical cardio training session takes a lot of effort and doesn’t allow for rapid twitch muscle growth that is required to speed up and increase power and speed.

* Cardiotraining can result in muscle compensation and excess compensation.

* The typical cardio training results in overuse injuries such as shin and groin pains, chronic knee pain, hamstring, quad, or quad strains.

There must be a better way! !

Your son or daughter, or your soccer team, needs to improve their training.

These are the three things they must do to become stronger, faster, more agile and with more endurance than the “Energizer” battery bunny.

  1. For strength

These future soccer superstars should be taking part on a resistance training program.

This can begin at the age 8 with any of the following:

* Bodyweight Exercises

* Weights

* Medicine Balls

  1. A) No one is practicing proper technique
  2. B) A lack of proper supervision
  3. C) A Unqualified strength coach
  • Build speed
  • * Perform repeat sprints of between 10 and 20 metres, or yards, with recovery at least once per week

    * Hopscotch is a great jumping exercise that you should do at least once a week

    * Ball work at the game’s pace

  • Stamina is built (without having to do cardio runs).
  • * Interval Training or Burst/Interval Training – Soccer is an energetic game that requires quick recovery and energy, but also involves stops at the start and change in direction.

    This is how you build stamina.

    Soccer fitness training begins by understanding the physical demands of soccer, the movements patterns in the game, and then the mental demands.
