Foot position/shape on the push pass

When passing, are you supposed to raise your toes above your heel by simply tilting your foot upwards at an angle, or are you just meant to stretch your toes upwards with the rest of your foot in its normal postion? In fact, is it either of these?

Any help would be appreciated.

Go on to Google video and type in "Pele - The Master and His Method".
The video explains instep drive, ground shots and volleys.

What does the high juggling do? I don't think i've ever heard of this before or seen it done on freestyle videos etc.

Thanks for the reply. I've incorporated ground kicks - inside of the foot, outside, instep (shooting is a weakness) - and i'm not quite up to the level of my control in this area so i suppose it could be counted as a weakness.

Well, haven't posted for a while but i've just been doing the same kind of practice (dribbling, controlling + juggling AND some kicking practice aswell), sometimes exceeding four hours. Most importantly, I'm noticing considerable improvement. Just one question, though: is it ok to practice the three...

Thigh control harder with size 5 or smaller ball?

I've been practicing thigh traps (out of the air especially) over the last couple of days and basically my question is, to anyone who practices regularly with a wall and a smaller ball (i.e. futbol salao, tennis), do you find thigh control easier with the smaller ball or the size 5?

Thanks for the advice. I am just going to keep working hard and try to get as good as possible, so I suppose at some point that will mean playing 11-a-side at a good standard anyway. 26 October Today I followed the same dribbling routine as yesterday, then worked on controlling with different parts ...

Do footskills (as in moves, not just dribbling and control) make a massive amount of difference? Surely dribbling at high speed or controlling a ball coming at speed is much harder than doing some of these movements anyway, so do they really help your control that much. And I doubt that the majority...

25 October Well, I finally have something to post now that my (lower) back strain's eased up. I worked on my dribbling for 35 minutes with the tennis ball, focussing just on the quality of my inside, instep and outside touches for 25 minutes, and then moved on to going through obstacles for ten min...

Harmerdinho's training diary

Right, I've decided to make a log of my progress and what I practice each day. At the moment I'm only playing in a 5-a-side team with my friends but I still aim to practice every day and give 100% in my practicing. When I feel I've improved significantly I might try for a team - my weaknesses are re...

Tennis juggling question

When using a tennis ball for juggling does it help to use parts of your foot other than the insteps?

Best size ball for improving the sole of your foot?

Hey, just wondering which size ball you guys think is best for improving the sole of your foot. It's just that i've noticed that after working with something really small like a tennis ball, although my dribbling with the inside, outside and instep feels much better I feel akward putting my foot on ...
