5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book-Not for the U12 Set October 3, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Greg Gatz is the director of strength and conditioning programs for Olympic sports at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, the home of the women's soccer program that's far and away won more Division I championships than any other women's soccer team. It's the place where Hamm and many other notable women players went to school. In other words, the school's record is a tribute to Greg's work. He develops a summer conditioning program for the players, evaluates them in pre-season and post-season and, of course, runs their strength training.

This book is usefu, in particular, for the high school athlete and coach, or older (collegiate) players and coaches. As one other reviewer noted, there's a lot of reading. Yep. But understanding the "why" of the exercises and the conditioning program are important, too. For younger players, time with the ball is a better way to spend time than conditioning.

For those simply looking for a conditioning checklist and don't care to understand the physiology involved, just Google "UNC Summer Conditioning Program." Again, for younger players, and many older ones, playing UNC's 1v1 to cones game will work wonders. F

For the coach or evaluator, or self-motivated older players, this is a great resource, along with Jens Bangsbo's book on soccer fitness.

3.0 out of 5 stars Soccer training and conditioning guide October 4, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is lots of reading and not very practicall to take to the park and workout. Would preffer less reading and more practical sheets or cards to take with you for guideance. All the workouts are great, but little overwhelming for mom to take and train her kids, memorizing it all. What I would preffer planner like style book, with takeaway pages and plan for the whole year, so the progress could be recorded as well.
