Summary

This book provides the definitive guide to how strength and conditioning (S&C) can be effectively applied in football, up to the professional level. S&C is well established as a cornerstone of sports science in elite sport, and professional football now includes S&C as a key part in the preparation and training of players, with S&C specialists helping to make players more robust, more efficient, and more explosive.

Applying true S&C expertise to help all players become more effective, this book covers all aspects which contribute to successful practice, including effective communication, the performance model-based approach which underpins the practice, and, of course, practical exercise prescription. This guide deals in much more than a list of exercises. Critical topics such as effective coaching, injury prevention philosophy and practice, and performance enhancement and monitoring are covered in depth.

This book represents a unique resource for both existing and aspiring football S&C coaches as well as sports science graduates. In a developing field, this pioneering text will help to shape and define the role of the S&C coach within the sport.
