SOCCER FITNESS DRILLS

SOCCER FITNESS DRILLS

Soccer fitness drills are hard and very physically demanding from the players. I find that constant encouragement from the Coach, Parents, Teammate or anyone else that can add motivation and push the players when they are running and gasping for breath.

SOCCER CONDITIONING DRILL SET UP

This is a very easy soccer drill to set up, and also one of the oldest and very effective soccer conditioning drills used by many soccer clubs on both amateur and professional level.

  • Set up 5 cones in a straight line, with 10 - 15 m/yd of space in between each cone.

SOCCER CONDITIONING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Start with sprinting from 1st to the 2nd cone, turn around the cone, and sprint back to the starting cone (1st cone).
  • Sprint to the 3rd cone, turn around the cone, and sprint back to the 1st cone.
  • Continue with the 4th cone, and back to the starting cone.
  • Finish with the 5th cone, running back to the beginning cone to complete a repetition.

SOCCER TRAINING VARIATIONS

  • Sprint forward, and back pedal to the starting cone.
  • Sprint with the ball at your feet.
  • Touch the cone.
  • GET CREATIVE AND PUSH YOURSELF…
  • THE LAST CONE IS MOST IMPORTANT.  GIVE IT EVERYTHING YOU HAVE ON THE LAST CONE RUN.

This is a known exercise for many sports, used by many clubs.

A simple way to get 200 m/yd of sprinting done, without realizing how much space you've covered.

Suicide runs can also be done on a soccer field. It is a very hard soccer conditioning drill where the players use the lines on the soccer field as marks to come back to the beginning. 

Starting point is the goal line on one side of the field. Players run to the first line and back, followed by 2nd line, and 3rd, until you are running all the way to the opposite goal line, and back to the beginning goal line, to finish 1 repetition.

Suicide runs are exactly how they sound, hard and miserable.

TRAIN HARDER,
TRAIN SMARTER,
PLAY BETTER!
