How to become a better footballer
In order to play football well, you need to be in good shape. Include these elements in your training to create a balanced routine.
1.Take care of your stamina
To last the full 90 minutes, you need plenty of stamina. Running is one of the easiest ways to build stamina. Try to run at least 10 to 20 minutes daily. Maintain a jogging pace and gradually increase your training time every week until you can run for 60 minutes. This is just an example, feel free to adjust the time and speed according to your body.
2. Train to prevent injury
Ankle injuries are among the most common injuries in football. Heel Raises, ankle circles, calf raises, shin raises and single leg balance can help to prevent and reduce ankle injuries.
3.Incorporate balance training
To improve your kicking, passing and tackling, try to do more balance training. Standing tree pose, T stand with hinge and side bend are some of the exercises you can do to improve your balance. Also, try to choose any balance training that you can do anytime such as the standing tree pose.
4.Work on your strength and speed
Plyometric exercises can help build strength and speed but what exactly is plyometric training? Plyometric, also known as plyos focuses on learning to move from a muscle extension to a contraction in a rapid or explosive manner, such as in specialized repeated jumping. Squat thrusters, reverse lunges with knee-up and frog squat jumps are examples of plyometric exercises.
5. Train with your team
Get your team together and train with them to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each of your teammates. This way you can prepare better training circuits that accommodate each of the team members.
