    Soccer training

    July 5, 2017, 2:34 pm

    Hey guys,

    In about a month the soccer season will start again and I want to be as fit as possible. Currently I'm training in the gym 5 times, training each muscle group once. I also started doing hiit training this week, which consists of 15 minutes of running where I sprint for 20 sec and jog for 40 sec. I will increase the sprinting time each week. I'm on a cut as well. I've got two questions. Can I build up my endurance and speed on a caloric deficit? And using the bmr calculator, my calories for (rapid) fat loss comes to between 3200 and 3500 calories (training every day, as I do hiit mostly on rest days). This seems a bit much for fat loss, so is this correct or should I adjust this number? 

    Thanks!

    Also, is there anything else specifically for soccer that'll help me with agility for example?

    Hey Jesse. You can definitely build up your endurance and speed on a deficit - it's probably easier because you will have less weight to move around in terms of running on the field.

     

    As for your calories, your only 20, so your metabolism could still be quite high.. if those are the numbers you got, start with the lower end (3200) if you think it seems high, and see what happens. If you gain weight, lower it, if you lose weight, then it's good (so long as it's not too rapid for too long).

     

    Hope that helps!

     

    Oh and for soccer agility, I think that would be stuff to do on the field, more than in the gym :-)
