Code Red – Manchester United behind the scenes

I recently came across the video series “Code Red” on Manchester United. The series discusses the various exercises and training routines that Manchester United uses. In truth, there is much more preparation involved behind the scenes that most fans never see or learn about. Fortunately though, these brief videos provide an inside glimpse as to how they break down the various aspects of their training routine. 

There is something that each of can take away from this video. In this particular video, Gary Armer, the soft tissue therapist, discusses how each of us can aide the body’s recovery after training or a game. With players such as Paul Scholes, Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs playing well into their 30s and over a decade in top flight football, they are obviously doing a good job of taking care of their bodies. Watch the video below to learn more on the recovery process that Manchester United provides.

The idea for Goalden is to help other soccer players of all ages improve the many different aspects of their game. We began coaching youth teams and watching youth soccer all over Ontario. We watched semi-professional and professional teams and noticed how far the game still has to develop here. From that, we decided we want to help others obtain the best information as early as possible in their soccer careers. We want to educate readers about the game of soccer and the fine details that are often overlooked by coaches in North America.
