We’re repeatedly experimenting with our training week, and with good reason, consistently going into the weekend feeling under done or over cooked rather than primed for a peak performance. This can often be attributed to the difficulty associated with optimising your training week. Training too hard at the start or the end of your week can disrupt recovery and play havoc with your performances! What we are aiming to achieve with this article is to provide a framework from which you will be able to identify which parts of the training week need to be harder, and maybe more crucially, which parts need to be easier. When initially approaching the training week, we need to break it down into three distinguishable parts – namely; the recovery, training and tapering blocks of your weekly microcycle (week schedule).

Football is a high intensity sport, and requires endurance to be able to play for the whole 90 minutes, whilst maintaining skill levels and the ability to perform multiple sprints to beat your man, get up and down the touchline or work box to box in the middle of the field. Analysis of football shows that most mistakes are made towards the end of the game, as well as less distance being covered and less sprints made. The primary reason for this is fatigue, so it’s important to optimise our diet to fuel properly and perform for the whole game.
