Summary

Are you a skilled soccer player who can't make it big? Is it because of your lack of physical and mental fitness? This guide is your answer.

This guide provides an excellent way to help with soccer fitness for players and coaches. It looks at fitness for soccer and considers how this reflects and differs from general fitness. It offers examples of ways in which players can enhance their endurance for playing soccer.

It also looks at the kind of fitness specifically needed for playing soccer at the highest level our ability allows and considers the science behind the practice. Soccer Fitness considers the different aspects of getting fit for soccer.

It looks at ways to develop upper body strength. There is practical guidance offered with regards to plyometrics - specific training programs to develop explosiveness of movement and subsequent speed. Pace is needed in soccer, although it is a sprint-and-jog sport. This guide offers practical ways to develop the much needed attribute of stamina as well.

It is not just physical fitness that is required to be a good soccer player; mental awareness is vital. Positioning, selecting passes, making runs, and concentration are all about developing good mental fitness to help make the best decisions in a fast developing situation. This guide offers ways to enhance this.

We look at the kind of discipline needed to become fit enough to play soccer at the highest level we can and how diet can aid with achieving this specific fitness for playing soccer. We hope that this guide will offer insights to help you achieve what you want in your sporting joys, whether playing at a fun amateur level at local league standard to a semi-professional level or even for those who dream of playing professionally.

Good Audio Book, Covers A Lot!

This book is a good book to learn to be a better soccer player. It gives you exercise ideas and suggestions, it is a bit odd because there can not be pictures but they are described well. This book also separates kid and teen players from professionals. I think that is very important because a lot of times I think kids and teens hear about professional players and they want to be like them. The problem with younger people trying to follow advice for professionals is that their bodies are not ready for the same amount of work. I found this book relaxing to listen to and I used it with my kids who like to play soccer. I received a free copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest unbiased review. This has not influenced my opinions on the product. I have written honestly about my thoughts and opinions on the product.

A Handy Choice

This book is good but not good enough to make you a true soccer player. The author has done a good job overall. The training is basic and most of the tips i know already. Overall, a good book to grab.

Four Stars

I only give this four stars because, most of the books on Soccer, regimens that relate to the same question. Really recommended by me for the players and the coaches as well.

Fun read

I used to play soccer in school and I thought this book would be interesting to read. I wondered if there was anything I could still do today and if any fitness changed. I found out that there are many things that can not only improve your soccer fitness but also your overall fitness. Overall this was a very interesting read.

Great ideas

I really liked this audio book, I thought it gave some great workout routines and strategies. The 2 things that I was a little disappointed in was 1) I couldn't understand some of the things the reader was saying because of his accent. 2) I didn't like that he said soccer and then changed it to football and then back to soccer. Overall it was GREAT and well worth the time to listen to it. https://www.audible.com/?ipRedirectFrom=AU&ref=Adbl_ip_rdr_from_AU
