Today we were joined my Dr. Shawn Arent, an Associate Professor in the Department of Exercise Science and Sport Studies at Rutgers University. He is also the Director of the Human Performance Laboratory and Director of the Center for Human Performance in the Institute for Food, Nutrition, and Health. He completed his doctorate in 2002 in Exercise Science at Arizona Satte University. Dr. Arent works with the US Soccer Federation, the men’s and women’s soccer programs at Rutgers University, and the New Jersey Deviles as the head of exercise physiology. We speak with Dr. Arent about Pre-Season periodisation, small sided games, training load, heart rate monitoring, in-season strength training, and much more!
