Well, it's that time of year again. The season is fast approaching and plans are already being made for pre-season training by coaches all over the world. One of the critical parts of pre-season training is of course the fitness and conditioning element. Actually, it is now becoming a crucial part of regular season training sessions now that fitness and athleticism is becoming more of a factor for the success of any team at any level.
The problem for most coaches, is that conditioning ideas, methods and workouts are evolving so quickly, it's practically impossible for a coach to keep up with the latest trends. It wasn't too long ago that having your players do some static stretching followed by shuttle runs would get the job done. If you did that today, you would get laughed at by the conditioning experts.
So unless you have a specialist conditioning coach with your team or club, then what should you do? Well, you could spend hours online researching and educating yourself on the latest trends...
