With soccer being the world’s game we put a lot of pride into the soccer players at Ford Sports Performance. Soccer is both anaerobic and aerobic so it is vital that the athletes have a balance of type 1 and type 2 muscle fibers. The cardiorespiratory aspect of soccer is extremely important for success so we begin with implementing correct running mechanics which enhances/improves speed and efficiency of running. Once an athlete has the principles of running down, we shift towards change of direction, change of speed and agility in order to allow the body to develop before adding in ball skills. Throughout all of the training, our soccer players are put through knee strengthening exercises, ankle stability work and also quad/hamstring maintenance depending on each athlete. Similar to other sports here at FSP, we include lifting programs specific to the sport to benefit and compliment what is trained on the field.
