Don't just dig out your boot bag the day before training is due to start and polish your boots... there's more to getting ready for the new season than that. Map out your pre-season fitness blueprint for you and your players. MORE
Keep fit during the seasonal excesses
With the temptations that come with the Christmas season I thought all coaches – and I include myself in that – should be doing some crunching fitness exercises.
Here’s an example of a good one,
Abdominal crunch – knees up
- Lie face up, feet off the floor.
- Knees above hips, hands on ears.
- Keep legs still, crunch forward.
- Touch elbows on thighs.
- Return shoulders to floor.
Complete 3 sets of 10 repetitions.
Rest 60 seconds between sets.
