Summary

Soccer/Football is a sport that requires fitness, strength, and skill. Many athletes neglect to work on all of these aspects over the off-season, and as a result, they end up behind the other players when the season starts.

This 4-week program can be used over and over throughout your off-season and will target all the essential training areas.

Dr Will O'Connor

Performance Advantage

I have been racing, studying and coaching endurance sports for my entire adult life. For me, endurance training isn't an afterthought or a chore, it's a way of life.

Early mornings, blisters, afternoon naps, getting excited about the latest Garmin release, that's who I am.
