    There's a few around but most reach a level of physique then leave it there, harder to carry loads of body mass round the field for 90mins, most need speed endurance and recovery from oxygen debt. I'm a qualified coach and I play so it's nice to be able to discuss it now and again.

    we need the muscle

    Trust me muscle building is required for example i weigh 55 kg and very weak and play central midfield um talking box to box so i got to build muscle to manage to run without my muscles wearing of easily,i gotta build a body so that i can win the midfield battle....Lets take a look at Robihno dat guy used to be very skinny like me but then Pele took him feed him and gave him access to a gym so that he should put on some meat couz football is now competetive even when he got at madrid he was put on diet and lifted...Lifting here um not talking about being like arnold schwarzenegger um talking sumthing like kevin prince boateng and cristiano ronaldo hope you get the picture guys

    yeah get on a lifting program, stick to your soccer specific training and cardio and of course eat like a champ. Probably need 500 calorie over maintenance and go on that slow bulk I would bulk up to at least 145, and if you are adding lean muscle you could be great at 150 for soccer.

    yeah man its ridiculous how much it pays off. I'm 10x better now than ever and I played college ball, was a very good starter for our team yet I just previously got by based on natural talent only wasn't maximizing myself. Now I'm everywhere not only most fit out there, yeah I'm at 165 but I'm still able to hold off guys bigger easily and throw guys off the ball easily who may weigh more... holding off guys has never been so easy. The power in the legs is great as well, I totally disregarded the collegiate weight lifting program they were trying to make us follow. SMH.

    Yea exactly. I came in as a college athlete at 6'1 168 but weak. was just a fast technical striker. Our lifting program was **** so I did some research and made my own. did a bodybuilding split. like you said...it helps so much holding off players. especially since my natural position is a center forward. so much more explosive. im addicted to getting stronger and faster haha. i love it

    yup yup, I can imagine you as a Ibra type FWD but a couple inches shorter, or maybe Drogba at peak. I just wish I had a damn brain back then and properly trained off the field lol. Oh well at least I found out now and am able to kill whereever I play now.

    I play a lot of football (UKbrah). Sucks having football 3 times a week and then a 90 minute game on the weekend since I can't train legs as often as I'd like. I train them once a week and foam roll very often, does wonders.

    I'm also a central midfielder. It's kinda weird, I use to be really fast so was naturally a winger and didn't need much skill to do well. Then I got fat and I'm not as fit but my passing/knowledge of the game is way better so I thought center mid would be a good idea. I was wrong, it's even more physically challenging than the wing! I think CM is the best position for someone with extra muscle mass. Still, love pinging dem through balls like a baus!

    Congrats on playing for your national team! I guess the highest tier I've played is the Welsh 2nd division, which is NOT a brag :P Got paid and stuff which felt good and I was only 17 but meh, feel like if I stuck at it and actually dedicated myself I could have done much better. Dem regrets
    I fart every time I deadlift. No idea how loud either cos of headphones. Fuark.

    Hey fellas - Wanted to stop by and say whats up. I'm a soccer player on the West-Coast, a center-half/full-back with plenty of pace. I am 25, and this is the most well-balanced I've been as a player.

    My training:
    I trained for last season thru an MMA gym (which really helped with my durability in tough games), so my balance was pretty darn good when I tackled/engage a player one-on-one. I didn't lift too heavy, focused on higher-reps, and medium weights (for my 5"10, 170 lb frame), so I could pack a lot of lean muscle into my frame without looking too stacked.

    Pros:
    Strength, balance, explosive power

    Cons:
    Not as much technical training, soccer specific training was limited to league games and the occasional pickup game (not enough to learn new skills though).

    Hey fellas - Wanted to stop by and say whats up. I'm a soccer player on the West-Coast, a center-half/full-back with plenty of pace. I am 25, and this is the most well-balanced I've been as a player.

    My training:
    I trained for last season thru an MMA gym (which really helped with my durability in tough games), so my balance was pretty darn good when I tackled/engage a player one-on-one. I didn't lift too heavy, focused on higher-reps, and medium weights (for my 5"10, 170 lb frame), so I could pack a lot of lean muscle into my frame without looking too stacked.

    Pros:
    Strength, balance, explosive power

    Cons:
    Not as much technical training, soccer specific training was limited to league games and the occasional pickup game (not enough to learn new skills though).
    Thanks for the advice our league resumes in in February after the Afcon Cup so i plan on weight lifting after coming back from training every 5 days of the week

    good to hear brah. I am actually starting a mma style full body circuit midway through january. their workouts definately overlap with soccer/football since it focuses on maintaining strength and stamina throughout a long period of time, plus increases your Vo2 max. Heres a vid simialr to what I am going to do for my circuit. Along with my workouts i also do sprint training/speed and agility/timed distance. then obviously the technical training and practices, plus some extra tactical work on my own.

    heres a video of what the mma style workout will look like

    Hey Deadly, whats an example of an average weeks training schedule between gym and training/games during a season? Particularly what are the exercises you do in the gym?

    Well our season is rough. This is the usual schedule. (remember our season is shorter because of weather)

    Monday- Off
    Tuesday- 6am practice and 2:15pm practice. 2 hours each. Hardest day. a lot of fitness and physically demanding drills
    Wednesday- 6am practice and 2:15 pm practice. 2 hours each. A little easier. Usually film/weights for 6am and a lot of possession and game realistic drills in the afternoon.
    Thursday- 2:15pm practice. Light day. All set pieces and game strategy. Minimal running. Good stretch.
    Friday- Night game
    Saturday- early film and day for players who played to get a stretch, small warm up, and some touches in. The players who didnt play play a 45 min. half of soccer.
    Sunday- day game.

    In season, we usually do weights once as a team, if even. We do more of that in the winter/spring season. When we do lift, its usually 10 exercises. A few compound lifts and some isolation exercises, then some core/ab stuff.


    Example:

    Front squat. 3 set or 12
    High pull 3 sets of 12
    Bulgarian split squats 3 sets of 12
    Dumbbell bench on physioball 3x12
    curl to shoulder press 3x 10-12
    Dips 3 sets max out
    Back row 3x 10-12
    Bicycles (abs) 3x 20
    supermans 3x20

    then sometimes we will end with a team 5min plank. All workouts are around that structure, but exercises always vary, as well as rep range. Its not the best workout in my eyes, but its not bad either.

    If anyone wants our team workouts, I can send them to you. I can just take some pictures of them. I feel these workouts are better for in season.

    In terms of regaining those technical skills back (and improving even further) the only thing you can do is practice practice practice! Alone in your spare time AS WELL as at training.

    What i would suggest is that you take enough time several days a week to head down somewhere that has a brick wall etc to kick against. This is a perfect way to get your first touch and ball control to improve, but also many other skills. Kick the ball back and forth against the wall - concentrating on the 1st touch when you receive, move the ball left, move it right, practice looking around and your body positioning, practice dribbling and turning with the ball, pretend to hold an opponent off the ball, it is important to do all these skills with both feet.
    You can also easily find a target area to practice your crossing.

    Once training comes around try to apply these skills you've been practicing alone into the game situations presented at training.
