Football Specific Endurance

Soccer Stamina, Soccer Stamina.

Maybe one of the most essential points is that Football is not an aerobic sport, instead, it’s what you may call an “Interval-Sport”, like many team sports are.

That doesn’t suggest the aerobic energy systems are not involved, of course, they are!

Yet the emphasis is on the non-aerobic power systems, meaning we’re looking right here at a non-aerobic( focus) sports task.

What does that mean?

It suggests do not waste your time, power, as well as muscle mass( it’s catabolic) with cardio training!

That’s a huge one, since besides a soccer player only has a lot of energy and time for training and recuperation readily available!!

Louis Van Gaal, in his Ajax Era, seems to have actually been the very first premier-league train to have actually understood this. Subsequently, he transformed all endurance infiltrate and interval set-ups and also transformed Ajax from an already very good team into possibly the absolute best one of the time.

It has actually been revealed that rate, agility, and volatility reduction as aerobic fitness increases. Both are not compatible.

Likewise, with too much jogging( which is a relatively slow motion) you can really teach your body to be sluggish!!

Any so-called “Aerobic-Base” help a noncardio sport -as is typically done post-season/early off-season- is not only unneeded, it is likewise counter-productive and also can also be harmful.

EST (Power System Training)

For a newbie usually the soccer sports training, technique games, as well as the competitive games themselves, are ample in regards to endurance training.

You want to set your priorities right:

As stated, there is only that much time in the day, as well as only that much power readily available for training as well as healing …

Here we will certainly consider the simplest feasible kind of periodizing EST, also known as Soccer Particular Endurance Training:

We start with the Atp/Pc Power and considerably move right into Atp/Pc Capacity, simply instantly Pre-Season. This type of work additionally immediately enhances the cardiovascular power system rather, as a helpful side-effect, you might say.

Period: 12 weeks.

Direct Progression in this example.

Six Phases of 2 weeks each = 12 weeks total program.

Weeks 1-2: 10x10m-starts, rest 120 seconds.
( after a suitable workout, do 10 sets of 10 meter-starts with 2 minutes remainder in-between).

Weeks 3-4: 6×10/10m-starts, 90 secs rest.
( 10 meter-start, turn, 10 meter-start back. Also known as Cutting-Drills/Suicides-Style. 1.5 minutes rest).

Weeks 5-6: 5×10/15/10m., the 60s.
( very same, Suicides-Style Reducing drill, 10, turn, 15 back, turn for one more 10. One min remainder right here).

Weeks 7-8: 6×10/15/15, the 30s.

Weeks 9-10: 7×10/15/20/ 10, the 20s.

Weeks 11-12: 8×10/15/20/ 15/10, 10s.

As you can see, the TUT( Time Under Stress) per collection boosts while the remainder interval reduces considerably.

For more clarification: so the last two weeks you do a Tabata-Style Reducing Drill containing( after proper warm-up) 8 collections of 10 meters, turn, 15, turn, 20, turn, 15, turn, 10 meters. After that, after only 10 secs rest, you repeat for an overall of 8 collections. An extremely brief and also very tough EST.

You must do the initial 3 stages early: during the day or in the training session when the gamers are still fresh. The completing three stages are best done as a “Finisher”, so after a session and also at the end of the training day. Doing them initially would jeopardize the quality of all various other jobs according to
