Grueling. That's one way anyone who has ever played soccer describes the sport. Soccer requires spurts of speed and game-long endurance, so even the most skilled halfbacks, fullbacks, and forwards know they can't survive on talent alone. It also takes unbelievable conditioning--the kind of conditioning that guarantees the stamina to run the field and still have the explosiveness to plow through defenders, battle for position, and drill the ball into the goal.

That's where Complete Conditioning for Soccer can help. Written by Los Angeles Galaxy head coach Sigi Schmid and Robert Alejo, a veteran conditioning coach who has worked with the UCLA Bruins and World Cup soccer teams, this book features numerous exercises designed to enhance performance.

Modeled after the same conditioning programs as those used by the Galaxy and Bruin powerhouses, Complete Conditioning for Soccer shows players how to get in the best possible shape with expert information on

- flexibility and warm-up techniques, - strength training, - power development, - aerobic training, - speed and agility exercises, and - individual and team conditioning with the ball.

Unlike other books on the market, Complete Conditioning for Soccer is easy to follow--and use! That's because the authors have combined step-by-step instructions with more than 125 photographs and illustrations to ensure that players use the proper form and technique. Use these expert coaches' conditioning programs to outperform and outwork your opponents, game after game!
