FOOTBALL PERIODIZATION TO MAXIMISE PERFORMANCE
Session Design | The Training Week | Tapering Strategy | 102 Practices | Youth to Pro
Proven and Successful Football Periodization Coaching Methodology to Maximise the Performance of your Players and Team from a World Leading High Performance Expert

Adam Owen PhD (UEFA Pro & A Licence Educator) has 20 years experience in various roles at the elite level; International, European club, UEFA Champions League and Europa League.


After his bestselling Football Conditioning: A Modern Scientific Approach (Book Set) and in his role as a UEFA Pro & A Licence Educator, coaches commonly ask these 3 key questions:

  1. How do I get the best possible performances from my players?
  2. What can I change or improve to maximise my team’s performance?
  3. What gives me the best possible chance of succeeding as a coach?

KEY POINT:

If the daily training content is poorly planned or managed through an insufficient methodological approach, poor performance occurs with the players insufficiently conditioned and significantly higher rates of injury.


Adam has now used his vast knowledge of applied football science and performance coaching to create a proven and succesful modern performance coaching methodology and has provided the answers in this book.


In this book you will learn how to:

  • Design training sessions and plan the training week (102 Practices included)
  • Use a methodological approach and training plan to produce optimum conditioning, low injury rates, and high performance
  • Make sure your players are always prepared correctly and perform at their maximum level on match day
Adam Owen PhD

“Maximising the physical profile and status of players is only a part of the performance target, as from a coach's perspective, building an integrated training process to a level where the physical, technical and tactical outcomes seamlessly fit into the development of the player or team, is fundamental to obtain performance progression within the coaching process.”

Adam Owen PhD
