Management of the training sessions

Management of the training sessions

Apart from planning the season the program allows you to order and schematize each single workout. To schedule the training session allows you to reduce downtimes and to increase efficiency.
 
From a practic and bio-physiological point of view the training session is composed by 3 phases:
  1. Initial phase: Beyond the physiological objectives like the increase in blood spraying that takes the oxygen to the muscles and decreases the possibility of muscle injuries, this phase prepares players mentally to face the objectives that will be proposed to them during the training session
  2. Central phase: The workload increases and working with different operational means we try to reach the objectives of the workout
  3. Final phase: Through operational means like thematic or conditioned games the objective pursued during the whole week can be verified
 
As default data the program proposes 5 phases:
  • Activation (Initial phase)
  • Game (Central phase)
  • Analytics/ Corrective game (Central phase)
  • Situation (Central phase)
  • Final (Final phase)

 

 
The proposed sequence is only a guideline that aims to work as a reference to organize the operational means that are going to be used during the training session: Initial and final phase are preset (At the beggining and at the end of the workout) while the rest of the parts of the central phase can be distributed as you wish.

Details of the proposed phases:
  • Activation: During the activation phase we suggest to use exercises that involve athletes singularly or in colaboration, that include well defined objectives without an opponent, for example exercises on technical principles (Touches, passes in pairs, self controls, feints, changes in direction, ball control) or coordinated, technical, technical-motive paths and psychokinetics exercises
  • Game: During the game phase simplified, conditioned and thematic games can be used where through the conditioning of the dimensions of the pitch or of the rules, the objective is to underline and strengthen a certain behaviour from which then extrapolate the skill
  • Analytics: In this phase we suggest to face a particular technical skill with exercises based in the principles of individual technique, for example transmissions, reception, ball driving, header and throw in. We add to the list the group of exercises on change in direction or ball coverage which allows to develop ball control and the relation athlete/ball
  • Situational: During the situational phase we suggest to insert situational, simplified and psychokinetic exercises. With this exercise the objective has to be reached overcoming the opposition of the rival. Some examples of situational exercises and 1v1, 2v1, 3v1 and 3v2. The psychokinetic exercises must include a relation with the ball where the behaviour of the player is linked to certain visual or acoustic stimulus
  • Final: In the final phase beyond the free play we suggest to use operational means such as thematic games and conditioned games where to propose again the objectives that were being pursued during the workout with the possibility of assessing the improvements obtained in the preceding phases.
