2010 NSCA National Coach of the Year Marcus Wood demonstrates over 20 drills that will simultaneously develop technical skills and physical fitness. Wood demonstrates 19 "station drills" that can be combined to create a conditioning circuit and two additional drills that include the entire team.
Each drill combines a technical component such as ball control, dribbling, shooting or passing with conditioning elements such as plyometric bounding exercises for ACL injury prevention, speed ladder exercises that improve agility and footwork, change of direction drills, sprints for aerobic conditioning, and more. Also included are drills that will get your goalkeepers involved and present them with game-like challenges.
Many of the drills can be adjusted to the skill level and conditioning level of your players and to make them more competitive to increase the intensity. This kind of flexibility will also allow you to develop an effective work-to-rest ratio during fitness training to get the most out of your players.
Players get bored with the same conditioning exercises over and over again. Coach Wood gives you a plethora of exercises that will change-up your normal conditioning practice and keep your players more focused and motivated.
