I was just wondering what kind of variations I should do especially since I can do elasticos very very well should I try other moves like hocus pocuses or something? I was also wondering how soon I can see improvement if I do each odf these drills for 30 minutes a piece. do you think I will be able to use my left foot with ease if I keep this up by the summer. By "with ease" I mean my coach will think wow logan can use both of his feet better than anybody on the team he can play pretty much anywhere. i can't do it as much during the week though I only get about 10 mins a piece during the week

How long does it take to see an improvement?
I did the bounce drill and the one where you kick it at a wall for about 20/30 mins, have done that twice now.

You should do all of the drills in the same session, it's usually better.

To be honest guys, I'm no professional trainer or anything. What you get out of these drills will depend on how much you put into them. For me, it took me about 3 weeks of using these drills to see a real improvement in my left foot (with 45 minutes of practice 5 days a week). A year later and continuous use of my left foot, I have absolutely no problems between using my left and right foot. These drills should be seen as a gateway into using your weak foot, after that it is up to you to use and play with your weak foot to make it equal.

Can you do these exercises with your good foot... Will you progress quickly with your dribbling techniques? Because I will do them with each feet if its works!

It varies upon how good your touch is with your good foot already. If it's beyond the level of these exercises, then no it won't help you improve much.

This is good, I really need to work on my left footed shot. Everything with my left is fine except for shooting and crossing, I'm working on it though and this should help. :wink:
