basically im getting back into football after quite a few years and need to change up my training.
little about me:
29 years old, 5ft 7, 80kg ish, stocky build, little bit overweight. Played football years ago at quite high level but stopped due to constant shoulder injuries. bodybuilding and powerlifting followed, now getting back into footy due to playing at work and need to change my training and asking for your help.
I have lost quite a bit of weight over the last 6 months, need to lose more and become quicker on my feet and turning/changing direction,i now run flat footed alot but i never used to.
my time is limited, i currently can train 3-4 times a week and try to fit in extra training at lunch time at work but this does interfere with nutrition (if i workout at lunch i can eat as good as i wont have time)
what im basically asking is what do some athletes (preferably footballers) do IN THE GYM? any suggestions for some quick workouts for strength and conditioning? I try to run as much as possible, sprints when i can and have been doing more power/speed work in the gym but i need to be lighter.
Im a full back, i need power, speed, strength and endurance. Should i just do crossfit/crossfit football type workouts?? bodyweight? i have been researching alot and just looking fir suggestions and other peoples opinions on this
