If you're the kind of manager who likes to get the most out of training in Football Manager, who likes to sign professional players who are willing to go that extra mile in training then these schedules are for you. These schedules are very effective, intense and are designed to maximize player growth. They are focused on developing specific attribute sets for positions without compromising the basic training needs for a players position. For example, a player on DC - aer - (H) will have extra focus on aerobic training while still receiving good training in strength/defending/tactics etc.

  • Schedules are designed for professional players (professionalism 10 or higher), they will be pleased with their training schedule workload.
  • Players with low professionalism (9 or lower) may become “unhappy with the high training workload” on these schedules.
  • Schedule intensity is 1 click inside “very heavy”, although this seems intense I use them all season and I've never had issues with excessive injuries so long as players are happy with their schedule.

    Me personally Idc if someone gets injured cos that leaves room for me to let others play so they don't whine about first team ball. My depth chart is pretty deep. Usually I sign decent reserves, with youth who have potential off the charts, so I don't mind when 5-6 get injured in a month span.. But of course before u sign any starter u gotta look at their injury history to see of they are injury prone cos my training is INTENSE!

    to complicated. you just can set up individual trainig on each you can focus on each aspect of training to develop skils. :-)

    Ye, just hadn't had any injuries the first season, so suddenly getting 9 senior-squad members injuried a month after starting that schedule got me thinking. However, I've used these schedules, only decreased a few categories that I felt unnecessary for every position and got it all better:) I like it much better now with a little lighter workload : )

    Thanks for getting me focusing more of training schedules Evo! :) nice upload

    Injury trouble appears to be a common issue for FM12 in general from what I've been reading around the scene.

    Use this schedule if you want all your players to get injured. First match of the season and already got 9 injured players, 4 of which would be considered regular first team player. Never seen troubles like this ever before.
