What Is The Football Fitness Bible?
❌ It’s NOT just another generic football coaching book. ❌ It’s NOT a book about how to morph into Cristiano Ronaldo within the next 90 days (run from anyone telling you it takes anything other than years of dedication to reach his level of fitness.) ❌ It’s NOT about how to take shortcuts which will come back to bite you further down the line. ❌ It’s NOT about skills training – though you will see why this stuff will make your performances hard to ignore to onlooking coaches, allow your skills to flourish to a much higher degree and enable you to have much greater impact every time you step onto the pitch.
❌ It’s NOT about doing more training, giving up your social life or investing in expensive supplements – though it will make the training you do far more efficient, effective and prime your body to perform in every training session and match.
The Football Fitness Bible is For Footballers Who Are Serious About Playing At A Top Professional Club & Representing Their Country
It’s an investment in your entire football career, helping you to avoid under-achieving at football trials and spend less time out with niggling, repetitive injuries (which hold many players back season after season.) Elite football performance is our thing. We’ve spent over 25 collective years studying and working directly with footballers who want to play at the highest level and we pride ourselves on our ability to make the seemingly complex and overwhelming, simple and actionable for players. The truth is that players at top professional clubs are being guided by sports science experts every single day...you need to be ready to compete with these players physically and mentally if you want to stand any chance of getting on the ball and showing the coach what you're truly capable of. This is where many players are flushing their opportunities down the drain...(the worst part is it's got nothing to do with their technical ability.) In fact when you see what we reveal in this book it may make you angry that you’ve wasted SO MUCH time training in a sub-optimal way, but it will also give you simple strategies which you can easily implement right away to break-through frustrating plateaus in performance.
So if you already work hard and you want to train in a much smarter way (guided by science) without sacrificing recovery time or feeling constantly fatigued, just implement the simple fitness and nutrition shifts that we outline in this book.
"For me personally it's the best football book I have ever read, amazing work. Thank you for the chance to be one of your readers." - Patrik Kortvely
Here Are A Few Of The Little-Known Strategies You'll Uncover...
✅ The single most important eating strategy to flood your body with energy before kick-off…without feeling bloated or sending you running to the toilet! (When you get this right, you will feel poised to perform at the start of every match.) Pg 197. ✅ The household root vegetable which has the little-known superpower of widening your blood vessels, unleashing a higher level of stamina…(Sound to good to be true? We've included the science to back it all up on page 290.) ✅ The 4 key elements of strength training that must be addressed in order to add lean muscle without slowing you down. (See the actual graphic you’ll want to memorize, print out and tape to your wall so you can reference it daily. Page 17) ✅ How BAREFOOT training can make you a more powerful player at the same time as correcting imbalances which are causing you pain in a completely different area of your body. (Many players are actually triggering their own injuries because they are overlooking the way in which their feet interact with the ground. On page 42 you’ll see a new approach that will change your season.) ✅ How you could SAVE HUNDREDS on physio appointments each season by simply correcting your squatting technique...(On page 15 see the break-down of the issues to look out for and what problems they could be creating.) ✅ Why stretching your hamstring to get rid of tightness will never solve the problem and what to do instead. (You'll kick yourself when you learn this. Page 117 shows you exactly what to do.) ✅ How the food you put in your mouth influences your ability to focus and think clearly under pressure. It's called the gut-brain network and it directs the behaviour of your brain, what's happening in your gut can even make it harder for you to learn new skills. (On page 157 you’ll get the formula for ensuring your gut health isn't hindering your mental clarity in training and matches.) ✅ If you're a goalkeeper, we've got you covered too. On page 214 we outline how your dietry needs differ from outfield players in both training and matches. ✅ Pg. 67: The step-by-step PRE-SEASON training process which must be followed to avoid sabotaging your fitness gains and significantly increasing your chances of injury come the start of the season.
And That’s Not Even HALF Of What You’ll Uncover Inside The Pages Of This Breakthrough Book
⚽ How to increase shot power - without even touching a ball. Page 51. ⚽ Page 69: Strength training during the season - what to focus on and how to schedule it into your week. (It won't lead to over-training when you follow our guidelines and it will increase muscle activation ready for match day, don’t miss this section.) ⚽ The key priniciples of football specific speed and agility training. (If you struggle being first to 50/50 balls, then this section is a must. On the football pitch there's so much more to being fast than simply running at speed - starting on page 85.) ⚽ How to decelerate quicker...believe it or not, the fastest players are always the one's who can STOP quicker than other players. (Essential in evading tackles, finding space and making sudden changes of direction. You’ll see exactly how to do it on page 101.) ⚽ The secret reason why top pro clubs NEVER let their players take an ice bath during pre-season. (This is an extremely common mistake, you could be sacrificing all of your hard pre-season efforts if you do this. Page 130) ⚽ Pg. 167: The common diet and fat loss strategies which footballers must avoid at all costs (and one's which we do recommend too). ⚽ Football "superfoods". (Page 221)
There's No Catch...
In case you're wondering why I'm so passionate about all this... The answer is simple: ...as a player I spent 9 years at English professional club Wycombe Wanderers and represented England schoolboys before suffering a “career ending” injury, being told by doctors that I could never play football again at the age of 19. It took a year of being pressured into playing through mounting pain (causing irreversible damage) and one incorrect diagnosis after another before eventually reaching that moment. That experience kick-started my sports science journey and after 4 years a return to football at semi-pro level was made possible thanks to knowledge that I uncovered and applied. You’ll find many of those insights and tons more inside this book. By all accounts my return to football was miraculous, with the doctor initially telling me that I had no future in “playing orcoaching sports of any kind”. That comment alone fuelled the fire for my comeback, I was determined to prove him wrong. Hopefully the fact that you’re now reading this demonstrates what can be possible for you if you get resourceful. Not only did I play football again (and had 3 of the best years of my life doing it), my team and I coach thousands of players around the world every single day. Throughout my playing years I saw many talented footballers get released or not “make the cut” for reasons that had absolutely nothing to do with their technical ability.
I also saw players who were nowhere near as technically gifted, but fantastic athletes, go on and achieve incredible things in football. Imagine the possibilities if you possess both qualities! I strongly believe that if you want to fulfil your truefootballing potential, then you need to understand and appreciate the pivotal role that fitness and nutrition plays in unlocking elite performance.
I’m not talking about a debatable 1 or 2% difference here; I’m talking about completely transforming the level of impact you’re able to consistently have in matches. Ultimately, the goal of any footballer should be to fuse peak performance with a low injury rate. What you’ll learn inside this book will get you closer to achieving that whilst bridging the gap between where you are now and what’s required of your body at the highest level of football. This is why I wrote The Football Fitness Bible.
It’s for anyone who wants to take control of their football career, maximise their training efforts and not waste precious time on the wrong things.
You’ve got the drive, motivation and self-belief...it makes sense to combine that with proven training strategies that are backed by science right?
Best part? It’s all super SIMPLE and it’s all in one place. You won’t have steam coming out of your ears trying to understand this stuff. But it requires a willingness to think outside the box and challenge the myths that many players, coaches and parents have had engrained in them over the years (by their coaches and parents).
If you saved on just ONE trip to the physio over the rest of your football career thanks to this book, then investing in this book would have already paid itself back. If you were able to train yourself rather than hiring a weekly 1-1 coach thanks to this book, then investing in the Football Fitness Bible book would have paid you back multiple times within just ONE month. If something you learnt from this book helped you train more effectively, took your form to a new level and lead to you signing a pro contract, then investing in this book could be potentially pay you back thousands if not tens of thousands of times over.
