Kick Start the New Year! Drill 1.
Happy New Year!
It can be a tough time to ﬁt everything in this time of year! So, I though it might be helpful to post a drill a day for the next 5 days to get your footwork ﬁtness ready for the 2020 season! Next time you plan on going for a run try adding this one in to sharpen up the footwork.
- 4 cones (if you don’t have cones be creative)
- 5x5m space . Optional ball.
- Set a square that's 5m by 5m using your markers.
- Starting at Point 1
- Run forward to Point 2
- Side step to Point 3
- Run diagonally to 1
- At point 1 jump as high as you can
- Side step to point 4
- Run to 3
- Run back at point 1
- 5-15sec rest
- Rep 3-5reps (2-4 sets)
- Remember we always want to see the ball (even if its imaginary). So keep those angles sharp!!
If you have a friend, add a ball in. Keep vision up for ball . Don't lose focus on the quality of your movement. Passes can be anywhere so be on your toes ready to snap it in!
Between sets: if you're a shooter put up 20 shots, vary up the distance.
NO BALL NO WORRIES.
Defender’s practice your 4sec hands over the shot, over an imaginary shooter. (No two holds over a shot can be the same, keep that variety).
Don’t forget warm up/cool down and remember QUALITY QUALITY QUALITY!!
Happy New Year lovers, AB xo
