How much has your training routine helped you?

Post by rzadzinski » 14 Feb 2007, 05:58

Simple as that, how has it helped you? What is your progress? How much better are you? What did you work on? What did you do to get better at this?

Answer these few questions and let's put them in one thread and maybe we can motivate some more users to keep with their training routine or users to start some.

I'll start.

I don't have much to say, as I just started. But in only a few days of training, I feel my juggling touch has improved and I will continue with this. I can't say I'm much better yet, but I just started, so it's coming. For now I'm just working on juggling as I have limited space. So all I have been doing the last couple days is juggling and some strength training with pushups and situps, which seem to be working as well.

Anyone else? Let's get some more info!!!

great topic!
My most successful training routine is on heading and receiving. I improved my power on headings but still has to work on timing.
Worst routine:
dribbling. it's not that bad , but it didn't give me the results i'd prefer

Like rzadzinski said great topic!
My most beneficial training routine would be ball control, skill and weak foot ability. Over months of training i went from doing 100 juggles to 1000's and my left foot is almost just as good as my right. I still need to improve my heading although it's not bad.

Over the summer I put together a program that had me practicing about 2 and a half hours a day, 5 days a week. I got at least twice as good, and became captain of my team, something I never would have been able to do otherwise.

That is a pretty good plan, but also remember to practice what you are good
at so you don't lose your touch..

Hey guys, I'm new here...

I practice by myself pretty much every day, and I feel I've gotten better. However, it's hard for me to know if I'm doing a technique right, but I haven't practiced it enough, or if I'm doing a technique wrong and no matter how much I practice, it's not going to work.
Maybe I'm just stupid though :P
