I am training my stomachmuscles for some weeks now. I've read that it is also good for your condition (you know, when you are tired your chest hurts, I don't know the English word for it but everyone definetly knows it), now when you have trained stomachmuscles this won't happen that much anymore !

shooting power comes from good technique, the shooting power comes from your abs and lower back. Thats why you take a run into the ball from the side, so your abs, hips, and back can get into the shot. Also, soccer is a game of lots of "twisting". I mean you have to litterally "twist your self into a pretzel" to get some shots off due to opponents next to you and what not. So, developing your abs helps your shot, and obviously your strength on the ball.

also when the ball is coming a litttle bit higher than waist high, u need to have good abs so u can let the ball hit there, other wis it will hurt like crap when the ball hits u in the stomach at a fast speed

i think it is good for you to have good abs so that way you could have more stamina, or more poser in your upper body.

Attend YMCA and do all drills that involve abs and you will be sore next day which means you did good.

abs make you more agile and help you get in shape too. its also easier for areial challenges because u stay longer in the air and you get more power in your headers. apart from that i forget but i think they help for sprinting and for you posture.

ABS

Post by Sokrfreak515 » 17 Apr 2005, 00:47

Well if you have good abs you can head the ball harder because u use your abs to lean back and forward when you hit the ball..... ill i do to get good abs is go to my track practices 4 times a week.... 50 sit ups a day and 30 push-ups plus the running i can now run 3 or 4 miles with ease compared to one mile of huffin n puffin :oops: :lol:
