Website update - About using SSG for conditioning

Training

From a scientific point of view, Small-Sided-Games (SSG) provide reliable internal- (such as HR, RPE, and blood lactate concentration) and external responses (such as total distance covered) and therefore can be used as a conditioning format (39).

FC Bayern strength session

Training

We watched a strength-training session of FC Bayern Munich during their training camp at Doha/Qatar two weeks ago.


This session followed the previous released warm-up session as the main part of the training session.

 

The setup consisted of 6 stations. Each station was performed ~1 minute in length followed by a 1 minute recovery period. All players went through the entire strength-training circle 3 times. The 27 players were “equally” divided in groups of 4-5 and the set-up of the circle was an area on the football pitch of ~35 x 15 meters.
