dont start a training routine. i know this might get flamed but hear me out. Start a new leaf of telling yourself that you will spend alot of time kicking a ball and tell yourself that you will fool aoround with a ball in all your free time. let the ball become your new video games, tv, and candy. b...

no let me rephrase i see my words have been misquoted. I completely agree that practice makes perfect in everything. soccer, school, sex ect ect. i was more or less dismissing the idea of a routine because a routine in and of itself its doomed from the begining..like i said just imo.. anyway i stron...

Re: training routine for defenders

I was wondering if anybody new a good training routine for defenders (i play division 2 soccer) uh ask your coach then? honestly, as a forward i can safely say that the best defenders are those players that 1. have solid muscle - push me around as opposed to me pushing them around/intimidate me so ...

Well for me training in the morning really wakes me up. My high school team has been having practices at 6 in the morning twice a week and I'm a lot more focused the rest of the day. On the days that I don't train before school I basically sleepwalk through my first few classes. I think training ea...

honestly bro, dont get caught up in all this training routine bs..just kick the ball against a wall/play with freinds and try to stop creative dribblers..honestly you will drop a 'routine' as quickly as you throw it together bro. Just practice hard with your team, lift weights, and stay in good shap...

this post is completely false. I guarantee that if you ONLY played with others, you'd improve much less than if you supplemented your playing experience with individual training. It's the only way to really become a solid player. You think the likes of christiano ronaldo and beckham just fooled arou...

depends what your goals are. whey is utlized by bodybuilders and football players. it basically makes your muscles absorb more water. So if youre trying to bulk up, definitely go for it, however it will slow you down, and it will probably not contribute to your soccer..unless you play defense, or de...

Re: Training plan

mb1417, your plan lack specificity and goals. To me it looks like something you sat down and wrote, but I think it would be impossible to follow Actually those are just the sub-categories of training, under each I have specifics that I felt were not important to list. 30x2 = 1 hour of sprinting per...

no one needs odp. its well known that in many states/regions it is very political and biased. many coaches and such manipulate who makes the teams. and in many states (like nj) the coach doesnt even watch at the tryout because the team is PREDETERMINED. :evil: . Just play well on your club/supery/hi...

Training plan

I made a training plan for myself which involves two 2 hour sessions per day. They each involve 30 minutes of juggling, 30 minutes of agility/sprinting drills, 30 minutes of trapping/controlling/first touch, and 30 minutes of dribbling/stepovers. This is 4 hours of training per day. Is this enough? ...
