Jozy Altidore's Pre-Season Training Schedule

Jozy Altidore is headed to China for the Olympic games, but in his NY Times blog he gives a quick run down of what it's like over at Villarreal playing in La Liga and their pre-season training camp. Jozy has had quite a soccer career already, and the chance to play in Spain must be an amazing experience for a young soccer player:

"I want to give everyone a little idea of what our training days are like"

  • We’re up at 7 a.m., breakfast is at 7:45. It’s really light … no eggs, but fruit, cereal, toast, nothing heavy.
  • After that we leave for the field and just do running and fitness work, no ball, for about 40 minutes.
  • Then it’s back to where we’re staying at 9:30 for snack.
  • We get to rest for a half-hour, then it’s into the weight room and some more running.
  • We have lunch from 1-2:30, then it’s siesta … but you already know about that!
  • We’re up from siesta at about 6:30, have a snack and at 7:30 we leave for tactical training sessions at night where the attackers take on the defenders and we also play a little 1v1.

"It’s totally different from anything I’ve ever done before. But it’s fun. It’s good. It hits all areas."

Update: It now seems like Altidore has spent a fair amount of time in the weight room, as he's become much stronger.

As he gets set to make his 100th U.S. MNT appearance, take a look back at Jozy Altidore's 37 career international goals.
