How often do you guys spend training at a soccer field each day and how many days a week? I usually spend about 2-3 hours a day at the field but sometimes up to 5 hours a day jsut juggling the ball in the backyard.

You spend loads more than me...

I spend most my time jogging, but when i go down to a field it is usually just to do some speed training or something, so i just do an hour intensive training.

my normal routine would be to jog for around 15-20 mins then go home do press ups and sit ups then do some weights, then go on my stepper machine thingy for 20 mins so about an hour all together.

the most annoying thing for me the closest wall to practise against is about 2/3 miles away and the closest field is about 2 miles in the other direction so i have to get my bike out alot.

I would die for a big wall in my back garden to play against.

you realize that 2 hours at a high intensity with goals set before each training session is much more useful than kicking the ball around aimlessly for 3-4 hours a day? I find it hard to believe that so many people here practice 3-4 hours a day, if you guys did this, you would be in the EPL now...

I would suspect many members of this site regard "practicing for 3-4 hours a day" as playing football for 3-4 hours a day, as opposed to goal orientated and structured training sessions.

As you say, if you TRAIN 3-4 hours a day, when your between the ages of 12 and 16 (like the majority of members of this site are), you've got a much better chance of going pro, than if you play football 6 hours a day.

im 15 years old and in the summer i did occasionaly practice for up to 8 hours some days because of no school but to be honest it was structured but when i probs spent 2/3 hours collecting the ball from the goal...

The best thing to do when practicing alone is: Fitness; Speed; playing against a wall; kickups etc.

And the best thing to do if you want to improve alot is go to alot of teams trainings or train with a mens team or something, i have played for a u18's team for nearly a year now and i have improved massively.

I set goals before every training session but ive only been doing it since i read some of your posts jdefoe and that been for about 3 months now. I have improved alot and have over taken people who i used to think were great soccer players. The reason im not in EPL is because season hasn't started yet and i havent had a chance to show my skills lol. Jokin (i wish) :lol: ....i have to improve much more if im goin to get scouted but im willing to work my ass off for it.

P.S.I'm having trouble buying some small markers....does anybody know where i could get some?
