Explanation of Training Program

Extracts from this document...


Explanation of Training Program The training program I have designed is set up in such a fashion that not only will lead to better fitness if the activities are carried out efficiently but will also allow anyone undergoing the program to warm themselves up whilst doing the program just before going into more testing exercises before warming down again with simpler tasks that should suit the body. STATIONS 1&2 The first two activities are ones that do not require any vigorous activity. If done correctly they are steady exercises that build up strength, endurance and improve flexibility.

STATION 5 This is a thirty meter sprint that will improve speed. This is the last of any activities that could prove to be more tiring and another two-minute rest will take place.

The training program is then completed after the tenth station. The events selected all help to improve parts of fitness essential to football players no matter what position they play. The order of events was also selected specifically in a way that it is hoped will be more efficient and beneficial to those undergoing this particular program. ...read more.
