Soccer training resources you should be reading

I read a lot. You should too. The field of sport science, especially as it relates to soccer, is burgeoning and to stay relevant you can’t rest on your laurels. I have many blogs that I follow through my iPad RSS reader (I love the Newsify app if you’re in the market). Here are some of the soccer fitness blogs you should be reading:

  • Complementary Training?(A blog from Mladen Jovanovic. Of all the blogs I read on various subjects, this is one of my favorites)
  • Science of Soccer Online (Not regularly updated but great content from Dr. Jay Williams)
  • Empowered Athlete?(A blog from Mat Herold)
  • Science in Football?(A blog from George Nassis)
  • Soccer Fitness (Very irregular updates but good content)
  • Soccer Sport Science?(I just recently started following this one and the content seems good)
  • ELITETRACK (I own this one and it’s technically a Track & Field site but Carl Valle often blogs on soccer related science and technology updates)
  • Football Science
  • Pub Med (technically not a blog but this is where I pull most of the abstracts that I’ll post on this site)

There are plenty of other training or sport science blogs I read that are more general in nature but those are the soccer related ones I tend to read. If you have any to share please post to the comments.
