Fitness and Strength Training

The programs below are designed to help coaches and players who want guidance with getting fit for the upcoming season.

They have been created by MWFA Coach Development Manager Eugene Lawrenz, and Sai van Wegen from Manly United FC.

These programs are not “strength and conditioning”, but football fitness and football strength programs, designed to be specific to the sport of football rather than being generic.

They are suitable for teenage players, but especially adult players. Note: junior players who have not yet completed their growth spurt should avoid fitness and strength training programs.

They can be done at home, as extra training on top of regular team training sessions, or as part of team training sessions.
