I have 1 hour to do anaerobic trainning, I found a trainning routine on the internet but i don´t know if I can do with westise skiny bastards 3, the link for the routine is here:

What do you think? how can I improve my routine to imrpove my conditioning?

My anaerobic trainning is:
exercise 1
I run (12x15 yd; then resting 30 seconds than running 9x30 yd rest 30 second and run 12x15 yd thats 1 set, I am doing 3 set resting 2 minutes between them

exercise 2: Run from one sideline to the other, but alternate by doing a sprint, then jog back; sprint
then jog back. 6 reps 30 seconds rest between them

why not contact a soccer coach and get a workout plan from him???

At first look, this seems like a hell of a lot of training for the legs. I would suggest you use the original 3 day WS4SB template.

What are you doing for 3 hours by yourself? I would suggest you put in your anaerobic stuff on these days, instead of splitting it up to where you are running 8 times a week.

For example:

Monday- Practice/Conditioning and Max Effort Upper
Tuesday- Practice/Conditioning
Wednesday- Rest (stay off your legs!)
Thursday- Max Effort Lower and Conditioning (make the conditioning a shorter session, not 3 hours)
Friday- Practice/Conditioning and Rep Effort Upper
Saturday- Rest or Shorter Conditioning Session
Sunday- Rest (Off your legs!)

With the training week set up like this, you will have a full day of recovery before your lower body day, you could also do Tuesday’s session in the morning to stretch out the recovery period. You will also rest on the weekend, because proper recovery is vital to your success.

For the shorter sessions, these should be conditioning only and much shorter than the Practice/Conditioning days. Think 30 minutes, not 3 hours.

What the hell are you doing for 3 hours?!?!


why do folks post on a site like this when they want specific sports info??? i look at workout sites just to read peoples quetions and their goals and workouts…as a cyclist, if i want spercific cycling info, i sure wouldnt go to a conditioning site … i would go to a cycling coach…
