Periodization Training For Football Players, 1

Periodization training for football players is important because you want to peak at the right time---DURING THE SEASON! Periodization training is a method that helps to avoid injuries and over-training.

Its getting closer to football season! I'm trying to control my excitement! You should have seriously started training for the upcoming football season about 2 months ago.

1. The first 2-1/2 months (March to middle of May) of training would concentrate on building your foundational strength and growing your muscles (hypertrophy).

2. From now to the middle of July (2 months), train to improve your maximum strength.

3. From the middle of July to the middle of August, you must convert your strength to power (how fast your muscles can produce force).

4. During the season, work to maintain your strength and power.

5. After the season, you will need active recovery and rest.

I will write about each stage of periodization training for football players in the next few articles so stay tuned!
