Practicing a Ronaldinho stepover

Post by collin » 20 Jun 2011, 22:06

what up guys i will be playing outside mid alot for my new club, and i thought adding in a stepover or two would be a good idea. I admire Ronaldinho stepovers alot. I watch him in his videos and he seems to go very wide with his stepover (almost like a lunging motion) and he drops his shoulder perfectly. Now does anyone else think it would be useful to practice these types of stepovers with a bigger ball, maybe something like a basketball. This way my technique will be forced to go wide with the stepover, that way when i go back to a smaller ball it adapts to the original technique.
