If you want your team to compete at its best, you need to commit to pre-season training. This 100 page session handbook includes 30 pre-season sessions.
Sessions are designed to replicate the demands of the game while incorporating high-intensity training – workouts that challenge the athletes to perform short, sharp explosive actions like sprinting, jumping and shooting. For the players this kind of work enables them to do their job with the same level of efficiency in the 90th minute as they do in the first. Once the season is underway it is far more difficult for coaches to push the players physically – there are too many games to play and recover from – so the work has to be done early and it has to be meticulously planned so the players are in prime condition come the start of the season.
