Aerobic Endurance Training Session

1


Component: Aerobic Power

Intensity: 85 - 95% of maximum heart rate

Duration: 70 seconds

Repetitions: 6

Sets: 1-3

Work to rest ratio: 1:1

Structure: A fullback is positioned on edge of box in a position to defend a cross from wide player on opposite side of the pitch. Wide player travels with the ball from midway inside half to edge of box to cross the ball.

Activity 1: Explosive movements specific to position - Full back sprints to defend cross getting in front of cone inside box (attacker).

Activity 2: High intensity movement to start an attack / counter attack.

Activity 3: Running with the ball at speed - Full back takes first touch out of feet, and builds up maximum speed to half way line creating an attacking / counter attacking move.

Activity 4: Diagonal pass. Full back looks up and makes long diagonal pass into box marked out (attacker) to enhance attacking move.

Activity 5: Moderate intensity recovery run. Full back jogs towards poles in center of field

Activity 6: High intensity lateral movement. Full back moves through poles at speed and receives a pass from coach.

Activity 7 & 8: Pass, high intensity overlapping run and cross. Full back passes ball back to coach makes overlapping run and crosses ball into penalty box. Full back performs recovery run across to start position and repeats.

Progression: Organize same set up on opposite side for full back to perform same series of activities on opposite side after crossing ball into box.

Coaches Hints: Is full back able to maintain explosive activities? Does full back recover quickly between explosive activities? Do players pay attention to the quality of ball work whilst in an overloaded situation?

Coaches Hints: Does the midfield player pay attention to the quality of pass, shot and cross performing at high intensity? Do the attackers time runs to ensure maximum speed is reached at same time as ball arrives?
