Run from the start cone to the second cone and back three times (or 25-yard cones = up and back - 6 times) It is a total of 300 yards. You need to run this in 57 seconds (or 63 seconds for 25-yard cones). You will have one minutes to rest before running the next set. Take extra rest where indicated.
The run is good for both forwards and midfielders. It’s just a simple way to elude a defender who’s over pressing you or over committing and too close to you. When you’re checking back to the soccer ball, and you see that the defender is too close to you, marking you tightly, break into the space behind them.
For me the soccer run is a combination of high intensity interval training (HIIT) and the Fartlek run and combines the benefits of these training techniques. First of all it will make you a faster runner just as any other high intensity workout will.
Start with a basic warm up, couple of strides, get some rest and hit the 1600m time trial. To get your MAS you simply need to divide 1600m with your time in seconds. For example: 1600m time: 6 minutes [6×60 = 360sec] MAS = 1600 [m] / 360 [sec] MAS = 4.44 [m/s] Don’t be frightened by the math.
Fitness and conditioning is a critical piece of soccer as the entire game is that of continuous running mixed with a lot of short bursts of high tempo, high-intense sprints. For this reason, it is essential to focus on both anaerobic (short duration, high intensity) and aerobic (running long distances) fitness to get your players to match fitness levels.
Soccer is a running sport combining both Aerobic and Anaerobic Endurance. This program focuses on both developing the Aerobic and Anaerobic thresholds as well as building Speed and Muscular Endurance.
Speed and agility training is a priority for soccer players. On the field, you’re in an upright posture, performing quick, choppy steps on your mid-foot as you pass or dribble the ball.
