All energy systems are constantly working together, although there is always a bigger contribution from one energy system to another depending on the intensity and duration of the activity. During a soccer match the ATP-PC energy system is the dominant energy source for high intensity activities of up to 10 seconds. This is dominant when an outfield player is jumping for a header or a goalkeeper is diving to save the ball. The anaerobic glycolysis system is the highest contribution when working 30-60 seconds and near maximum effort. The soccer player would reach their lactate threshold and have blood lactate levels increase. In a game of soccer, the anaerobic energy system is the most contribution when leading for the pass then receiving the …show more content…
For example, the goalkeepers training regime will need to be different to the outfield players. Training methods for each position focus on different fitness factors and skills that players use during a game. Focussing on the goal keeper training methods first, plyometrics is detrimental to their training sessions as they need to focus on fast and explosive exercises. By training plyometrics the goalkeeper is building power within their body to help them cover as much of the goal in the smallest time possible when attempting to save the ball. Flexibility will help the goalkeeper in being more acrobatic when diving across the goals, this is trained by doing stretches that help the body loosen up. An outfield player would use training methods such as interval and continuous. Interval training helps with creating an aerobic base during the preseason; interval training exercises such as the beep test help mimic the typical game of soccer as it shows the constant stop and start nature of the sport. As the competitive phase of the season approaches, ball work can be introduced. Continuous training helps with building on top of the aerobic base that the player had formed with the interval training. This helps prepare the player for a full ninety minute game of soccer. Continuous training helps the player work at higher rate for longer before exhaustion. For an outfield player, interval training would be used during the competitive phase and continuous training would be used during the preseason and offseason as they are working on low intensity high duration exercises to keep them fit without pushing themselves to
