Fitness and Physical Training
For college athletes, a top priority this summer is fitness. You must be committed to your workouts each week in order to pass the fitness test in the pre-season. Start as early as possible on your assigned workouts, and test yourself regularly. Schedule workouts with your soccer club’s U23 team to continually improve. Also, become a regular in the weight room. If your club has a strength coach, get with him/her now to be ready for “two a day” soccer preseason workouts and a daily college weight room session.
Your college experience will bring plenty of opportunities for growth and development, but it helps to have a plan and goals in mind. Each collegiate program has a fitness program they send their incoming freshman recruits. Expect to be tested during the first few days of preseason. Check out this advice on fitness tests, nutrition, and weightlifting from Soccer Training Info.
Luck favors the prepared! Wishing you luck!
