  • Technical and Tactical practices

  • Attacking and defending

Javier Mallo is currently a fitness coach at Real Madrid. He has previously been a fitness coach at Manchester City (2 years) and Atletico de Madrid (4 years). In this book, he explains how to create, organise and structure your football specific fitness training sessions.

Fitness coaches need to have a profound knowledge of the game, as all the practices in a session have to come together in a common way of thinking related to the tactical organisation of the team. It may be possible that in the following years the term fitness coach will lose all its value and will simply be replaced by coach or assistant coach.

Practice Topic Samples:
  • WARMING UP: Technical: Passing Combinations in Groups of 3
  • CONDITIONING: Coordination & Agility Training in a Conditioning Circuit
  • TECHNICAL: Passing Combination Play with Crossing & Finishing
  • TACTICAL: Position Specific 8 (+2) v 3 Zonal Possession Game
  • COMPETITIVE SMALL SIDED GAMES: Maximum Intensity SSG with Outside Support Players

Better understanding November 10, 2016
By: Andy Brown from Harwich, Essex United Kingdom  
Enjoyed the book, lots of information on the subject as well as some useful session plans.  Didn't give it a five star rating because it used language (big words) that weren't nessecary and stopped me enjoying the book.

Periodization Fitness Training November 3, 2016
By: Mike Kosub from Manchester, Greater Manchester United Kingdom  
It does provide some useful ideas but I'll probably only ever use 10% of the content. I coach a good standard amateur team (just below semi pro) and we only train on 3G one hour a week plus a 20 min warm up session before the Saturday games. So really I'm always just looking for different fitness and easy to get across passing/small sided game drills in order to vary the sessions and keep them interesting, fun and productive.
