Concurrent Training (CT) is the combination of resistance and endurance training in a periodized program to maximize all aspects of physical performance. Nutrition, physical performance and the level of functional capacity of the human beings are interrelated. Any dietary deficiency that adversely affects the health of the individual is likely to impair his or her physical performance capacity. The purpose of the present study was to find out the effect of concurrent training combined with selected nutritional design on selected physical fitness components of male football players. To achieve the purpose of this study, 28 male football players’ subjects of Nekemte Kenema were selected by using census sampling technique and their age ranged from 20 to 24 years old. The subjects were undergone twelve weeks concurrent training combined with selected nutritional design for three days per week with duration of 70 minutes. Subjects of experimental groups were tested on physical fitness components prior to and after the 12 weeks consumption of nutrition design combined with training period. The data collected from the participants pre and post-test was statistically examined to find out the significant improvement by using SPSS version 20, descriptive and paired t-test. In all cases, the criteria for statistical significance were set at 0.05 level of confidence (P<0.05). The results show that there were significant positive changes on selected physical fitness components.
