Raymond Verheijen-Football Conditioning



“Football Conditioning is gradually taken over by former footballers who study fitness instead of fitness coaches who try to study football.”-Raymond Verheijen

Football conditioning means the conditioning of football……and not conditioning of non-football aspects like some people make us believe.In football there is a clear difference between ‘Football Conditioning’ and ‘Injury Prevention’.’Injury Prevention’ covers areas like strength training, movement training, core stability, etc. which is the job of sport scientists.’Football Conditioning’ means the conditioning of players during football training which is the responsibility of the football coaches.

Problems arise when a sport scientist without a football background thinks he’s responsible for ‘Football Conditioning’ & ‘Football Fitness.
