It seems really heavy, (especially thursday) but if you can manage it then go for it. Don't forget to rest though :)

On Monday I have just juggling, but should I just leave that day for rest? Also the running, ball work, and weight lifting are all during different parts of the day. But if it's too heavy what do you think I should cut down on?

instead of having things on seperate days like dribbling passing against a wall, why dont you just mix them and do a little each day?

nah leave the juggling in the day of just rest isn't needed, similarly focusing on one thing per day isn't a bad thing not everyone mixes their schedule's up to have little bits of everything every day.

yes thats true but when he does wall passing or dribbling he is waiting a whole 6 days to do them again. I mean he can do it however he wants it but dont you think it would be a good idea to keep his skills sharp in all parts of the game every session?

I don't think people lose skills in 6 days hell most people won't lose skills like that in 6 weeks.

I thought it's better to focus each training session on one part of the game. Also most skills will also be used during things like practices and pick-up games.

the point is not to not lose your skills but to better your skills nick. I dont think samuel eto'o is practicing shooting once a week or barcelona is only doing passing drills once a week. I think you should just mix it all together, and put a little more time like 15-20 minutes more for the skills you want to improve most that week/day

But yes i guess if you play alot of pick-up and have teams practices then you should be fine.

i'm well aware of what it does however a little here a little there isn't much different from a lot here or a lot there. Not to mention he already has a full control set up every day even on his rest day so it would only be adding a little bit to each day.

Thanks for the opinions. Should I keep the routine the way it is or does anyone else have any more suggestions? I'm really looking for any kind of advice here haha.

It's really packed, you could really do with a day of rest. Not just for your body, but mentally. Everyone deserves a bit of down time to stop yourself going insane!

Yea dude, I recommend you do anyway. Your juggling most other days of the week, so it's not going to kill you to take it off.
