Something you can improve: 1. The distance from the target 2. The target seems to be a bit too small since you are trying to get the ball into the box. 3. try make the exercise more game related like set up 1-2 cones, turn from a rebound and pass. I use this as a way to practice long passes and shoo...

So for the past few days I've been dribbling and working on long passing and receiving. It's great cuz my friend was willing to practice together. That means more one on ones and small -sided games. yeh! = =

Try setting up cones and dribbling through them, or just juggle the ball. Another version that I like is to stand in front of a wall, juggle and pass to the wall. I got the ball under control and continue juggling off the rebound. This exercise is usaully done without the ball touching the ground.

Yeah I use this method...and it is good for 99%of the time.

great topic!
My most successful training routine is on heading and receiving. I improved my power on headings but still has to work on timing.
Worst routine:
dribbling. it's not that bad , but it didn't give me the results i'd prefer

Don't kid yourslef. Adidas makes some of the best cleats in the world. But if you got a boot for $60.00 that's their lower end boot, so expect it not to last. That's the one that the material feels kind of like plastic? If you get the shoe that's even the next step up, around $100.00 or so, they ar...
