Football is an ‘intermittent’ sport with short periods of high intensity work and brief rest periods. An average play lasts just 5 seconds and these short bursts are fueled by the anaerobic energy systems making power, speed and agility important aspects of performance. However games can last over 3 hours, meaning there is also an aerobic component.
To meet the demands of a sport like football specific training is essential, as is frequent testing to track your progress. At the Peak Centre we provide specific Combine Testing that assess areas of fitness that are relevant to football. The assessment includes:
