Century College Men’s Soccer  Fitness & Conditioning Program PDF

One of the key requirements of a good soccer team is conditioning and the key to any conditioning program is the ATHLETE.

No matter how good the program may be, nothing is truly accomplished unless the athlete actually DOES the workouts and develops good personal fitness habits. There is a significant difference between making a decision to get fit today and making a commitment to being a fit person over the entire offseason or even for a lifetime.

Any soccer training program should be based on one simple observation: soccer is a game that requires you to run, run a lot, and run and move in many different ways.

Any time you are focusing on soccer-specific fitness, you should be doing one of two things - either 1) playing a lot or 2) replicating the physical demands of soccer in your training routine. 

  Be sure that a warm-up and stretch is completed before you start each conditioning session. A sufficient warm-up

should last at least 5-10 minutes and allow you to break a sweat. Following the warm-up spend another 5-10 minutes

stretching. After completing the workout spend another 5-10 minutes stretching to decrease muscle soreness.

Descriptions of exercises are in the back of this program packet.
