I have not found a better manual for warm ups and cool downs.

Set out in 3 distinct phases of warm up all very logical and practical to use at all levels.

Mainly applicable to U12 and above age groups.

Level 3 coach.

I found this book of great help. It lays everything out very simply showing clear photos of the different dynamic flexibility stretches and supporting this with concise diagrams.
As the reviewer below states it does not really apply to younger kids, more for coaches working with older players and players in serious development programs.
Definetely the way forward for warming up in football.

This book is essential for the modern coach.
I have been on many coaching courses and the last I attended was in France with the French FA. They handed this book out as a present!
It is structured very well and goes into depth on the reasons why we warm up and what does not work. If you are an old fashioned coach who warms up with static stretching this is the way forward for you.

Most footie coaching books are full of stuff you know either through learning or, more likely, simple common sense. This book contains a wealth of info on warming up that I simply would never have worked out for myself. The routines are varied, extendable and interesting. I use them for Youth and Adult teams. They're good for Training and for Match Day. I would have liked more exercises using pairs as they help build teamwork.

I found the material in this book to be a little dated and generally common sense - few coaches would use static stretching these days!

VERY easy to read, and understand, and a great platform to start implementing in your own coaching drills. Easily recommended for the library
