My college soccer (football) team started training last week. Most of the players were woefully unfit having spent most of the summer sitting on their behinds. I?ve been doing some powerlifting, sprinting, strongman events and some EDT stuff so I?m actually in pretty good shape at the moment. I?ve been running rings around everybody else. I?ve got a reputation in college as ?the guy that trains? too.
As a result I?ve been asked to take the fitness training sessions. I can encourage some weights room activities but the group sessions that I would take would be on a soccer pitch with the guys, footballs and some cones. These guys aren?t suddenly going to take up training ?T? style. I would really appreciate some practical ideas for what I could do during the group training sessions. Any fun drills or activities etc?
One more thing: should static stretching be included in the warm up for soccer?
