The problem I am trying to resolve is either dropping off my training too early in the week and feeling a bit stiff on the day we play or I over train and can't maintain speed/power/endurance because my legs are still sore or tired.
I play on the same day every week so I'm interested in finding out what sort of a weekly routine do football teams have as they are also on a weekly cycle and I assume there has been plenty of research done into:
- How many days after a game should a player commence full training?
- How many days before a game should a player rest or pull back from training?
- Do they rest mid-week and train the day before the game?
