Our strength and conditioning program with Coach Kasey includes personalized workouts that focus on soccer-specific exercises to strengthen the entire body. Coach Kasey’s program takes a complete approach aimed at teaching players vital program components highlighted below
Includes 4 workouts a week — 1 workout with Coach Kasey and 3 personalized workouts to complete at home. Coach Kasey uploads videos of each workout for players to access; this ensures every player has instructions on how to appropriately complete each exercise in their program. All phases of the workout plan will be used and programmed based on the player's soccer schedule.
The workouts players have learned will act as a guide to the recovery process. This includes a recovery workout at the beginning of the week with Coach Kasey in connection with a normal workout throughout the week when a player has more than one game on a weekend. All recovery exercises that are taught and learned are soccer-specific.
The nutrition aspect of this program will assess players' current eating habits and help them develop a better understanding of what to eat and what to avoid in order to increase energy on and off the field.
These workouts consist of strengthening the entire body through core and stabilization exercises. Once players have a foundation built, they move to the next phase.
These are incorporated to improve overall strength through a variety of exercises including hip complex/core, legs, and upper body strength. Once the strength phase has been completed, players progress to the next phase.
Players increase their explosive ability by integrating aspects of the initial phase. This helps players’ muscles combat over-training or over exhaustion.
