i just have begun extend my usual fitness/strength workout to strengthening my calves.

I often had trouble with my ligaments in the right feet ankle and i hope this improves stability there.

Another problem i want to solve with this is my lost quickness.

perhaps 4 years ago i was as fast as a teammate i used to play with.
ok, he was a bit better in the acceleration, but in the topspeed we were the same.
Now, after doin a bit of fitness/body-building for a few years i gained weight (9 KG/18 pounds) and am noticable slower.
I do this work out 2 days in a week and really push much weight when doing the workout with the machines in the gym.
in the next pre-season training i guess or at least hope i will see the difference in sprinting.

losing weight is no option for me, because i like playing and using my body strengh in 1on1s.

Sorry but when are you supposed to be on your toes? Is it only when u're running towards the net and taking on a player because I find that when for example you're receiving the ball and you're on your toes you lose a lot in balance and can be easily dispossesed. Thanks
