It becomes boring and I want the training to end,I can't stop looking at the watch.Should I change something?
Should I kick the ball with my full power on the wall?
And about the speed stuff: I only do some plyometrics,speed ladder drills and some foot contact drills and a weight training -> 3 times a week.
Is this really helping my speed?Or I should run sprints or something like that?
I have 15 years.I'm from Romania.
On 20 May I will go a week in the Gica Popescu's soccer school.Because I was there at tryouts and the coach said I will go after school one week there to decide if I stay or not.
P.S: Great post jdefoe,it really helped me!I hope you answer my questions.
First off, make sure you are incorporating these drills in your wall practice:
If you already are, I feel you. I do these drills too and they get repetitive. Try different things such as doing them faster (while maintining quality).
An additional drill is this:
Find two walls about 10 feet apart (across form each other). It doesnt matter how high they are, as long as they are no lower than 1 foot.
Facing one wall and pass the ball against it. Trap the ball with the same foot.
At the same time setting the ball up to pass with the other foot agains the other wall. Trap the ball again with the passing foot and repeat the previous steps.
To challenge yourself even more:
make the passes harder/quicker
Trap,turn and set the ball cleaner and faster
Instead of trapping the ball with your passing foot: try trapping it with the other foot, turning and passing with the passing foot again.
As far as speed goes take a look at my posts in this topic:
Fartleks and stairs will help you with speed,acceleration, and quickness.
