“Discover the modern new approach to fitness training”
Soccer is one of the most demanding sports in the world. Players will run on average 10 km every game and if you want them to perform at their optimum level, it’s vital that your players stay in shape.
Fitness training is a vital part of a coaching program. But spending a session running around cones or going for long distance runs swallows up time your players could be spending with the ball improving their technical abilities.
Global training is the modern new approach to fitness training that enables you to work on technical and tactical elements of the game at the same time as fitness. The presenter of Global Soccer Conditioning Dave Tenney is one of the few people in US soccer distinguished as a soccer conditioning coach. His professional life revolves around studying the most effective conditioning programs of the best coaches in the world.
This means that from Global Soccer Conditioning you can gain valuable insights on what are considered the best fitness and conditioning training drills being used in soccer today. Isolated fitness drills that involve running around cones are on the way out. Global training is what leading coaches are using instead.

What’s covered in Global Soccer Conditioning
Global Soccer Conditioning features two distinct training sessions divided into separate parts and edited into 12 separate videos for easy viewing. These sessions are focused on endurance and speed and aerobic training.
Endurance Global Training (7 videos, running time over 50 minutes)
Tenney begins the session with a global training warm up with the ball which trains players to improve their first touch and acceleration. The training session then switches to a small sided game in which one team aims to maintain possession while the other presses. With points scored for completing six passes, the high tempo of the game trains players to find space and pass accurately while improving their fitness.
After the small sided game, Tenney switches to a crossing practice in which both defenders and the attacker jog around cones before rushing into the box to block or score with the ball. Instead of getting bored and de-motivated waiting in lines for the ball, players are constantly running throughout the drill.
The next drill in the endurance series requires players to run from the halfway line, with the defender forced to backpedal initially to replicate a sudden breaking of the defensive line. Attackers only have eight seconds in which to score, adding to the tempo of this fast paced global training exercise.
Finally, Tenney devotes the last quarter of this endurance training session to a half pitch small sided game in which players put into practice the principles of the previous exercises. Again, the focus in on maintaining possession or pressing. Further progressions are added with the team in possession only being allowed two touches to emphasis how the exercise can be changed to get the intensity level you want.
Tenney ends the session by allowing his worn out players to sit down as he answers questions from the coaches in attendance.

Speed and Aerobic Global Training (5 videos, running time over 55 minutes)
In this session Tenney demonstrates how to run sessions that combine speed and aerobic training with technical and tactical elements.
Tenney begins with dynamic stretching exercises that focus on individual joints progressively. This includes warm up exercises to develop a stable lower back, strong ankles and mobile hips to create a more functional athlete. Tenney emphasizes the importance of these exercises to prevent sports hernias and other sports related dysfunction.
The speed and aerobic training session now shifts to exercises to improve the speed of players’ reaction to the movement of the ball. This includes drills designed to improve players’ ability to accelerate and to stop quickly. The exercise is then progressed to include dribbling balls around color coordinated cones to challenge players’ speed, technical and mental abilities.
The session now switches to quick passing drills which are progressed to include differing pass speeds, backpedals and layoffs. Too often in training sessions, drills are played at two thirds pace. Tenney explains the importance of varying the speed of drills to replicate the ever changing pace of the real game. The changing speed of the drill also trains players on how to adjust their pace depending on unpredictable game situations.
Tenney ends the session by summarizing how the drills train players to react to sound and visual triggers, and why this type of training is vital to develop quick decision making. He then ends the session by answering questions from the coaches in attendance.
