Soccer Strength and Conditioning Programs

Players! Time To get Ready. Get a leg up on the competition by being the strongest, fastest, most agile player on the field. That athlete happens in the off-season!


The sport of Soccer requires the combination of muscular endurance, strength and the ability to generate explosive sprinting power over and over again. Developing these physical attributes will always be positive no matter what sport one competes in. However, because of the aerobic challenges of playing soccer these physical qualities are even more important. Engaging in a resistance training program like the Competitive Soccer Program will maximize these physical attributes as well as the intangibles of injury prevention and proper body positioning when competiting against an opponent for offensive and defensive ball control. The Soccer Fitness program will also help in the development of these physical attributes, but it focuses primarily on fitness rather than a high level performance!

The Soccer Programs begin with lower weights and higher repetitions to create a solid conditioning base for the muscles. Then, transition from this muscular endurance base into a strength and power focus by using heavier weights and less reps as the weeks progress will occur.

Throughout the length of the Soccer Programs, the manipulation of the sets and repetitions for each exercise will be based on periodization concepts that involve changing the intensity and the volume of the workouts.

The starting point of the program is based on an initial fitness level. With feedback, the actual progression of the program will follow the body's unique adaptation process to exercise. Fine tune the program to include all the exercises that feel the best.
