Off season soccer training has two important objectives…
1. Physical recuperation and mental respite from a strenuous season
2. Minimize any losses in strength and conditioning built up over the year.
In fact one of the World’s leading strength experts Tudor Bompa, suggests that “off season” is an inappropriate name. Instead he calls it the “transition phase” between two 12 month programs.
The worst thing you can do during this time is nothing – especially if you have worked hard to build up your strength and fitness levels over the season. Remember, maintaining 50-60% of your peak fitness level takes less effort than starting from scratch.
And if you do nothing for just 5-6 weeks you will be starting from scratch.
