Hi everyone.

I’ve been a strength and conditioning coach in professional sport for over 12 years and worked in professional football for 6 years and I think it is about time to share some of the knowledge I’ve gained with the upcoming footballers of the future!!…I really hope it can help! :D

Over the next few months I’m going to be starting up some free daily emails with free training and nutrition advice for Football Players.

I thought it would be cool to see what people need help with first though!

I’ve put together a short survey. It just involves taking 5 minutes to tell me what your single biggest struggle with Football Fitness is, along with a few extra questions.

If you complete it, it would – A) Really help me out, but more importantly… B) hopefully help you out in future with your biggest struggles, as I’ll really be able to tailor my upcoming emails and advice to topics you specifically want to know more about!

Finally, If you would like to be added to my free daily emails when I start to send them, then just add your email address below! Thanks a lot! Your answers will help me target the emails / information perfectly to suit you!! :)

Specific nutrient requirements for players are based on your body size and position. What works for one player may not be the best strategy for someone else. But, all players can benefit from the following guidelines:

Organize the food on your plate into a peace sign. Break your plate into thirds, placing a protein in one third, a starch [rice, pasta, potato] in a second, and a fruit and/or vegetable in the last.

Consume at least three meals per day with snacks between. Try to eat every four hours. Your daily caloric total should range between 20 to 25 calories per pound of body weight.

Skipping breakfast is not an option, especially when you have early morning practice or lifting. If you're not overly hungry, try a lighter alternative such as a milk shake, yogurt, cereal or fruit, or even a sports drink and sports bar.
