Soccer players need to always keep their conditions and strength with regular workouts. What happened when they can’t afford the gym training? Or what happened when the weather outside turn out to be so cold? Now, players can do their soccer exercises at home.
Tips on Starting Soccer Exercises At Home
When do the soccer exercises at home, you can focus on improving your individual skills. Here the tips on the way to help developing skills at your backyard:
• No Fancy Equipment Needed
When you do the technical training in group, you will get lots of proper soccer equipment. But when you doing it at home, what will you need are only some soccer balls, several pylons, and simple goalpost with net. With these three simple soccer equipment you start to practice your foot skills, like shooting and dribbling.
• Focus to Take Control Your Weakness
In the formal practice, you need to follow the scheduled training. While doing practice at home, you can only focus on your weakness area where you need to improve your fitness and skills. For example, if you have a weaker left foot to shoot or receive the ball, you can only focus on shooting with your left foot. Do the practices over and over again until you see some progress.
• Use the Wall As Your Partner
Individual exercises at home mean you have no any partner. You can use your home wall to practice passing and receiving a ball. Kick the ball against the wall with different speeds and angles to practice your ball’s control. At the same time, the wall is also a good partner to practice heading, volleying, or one-timing.
Training the 3 Basic Soccer Skills
Focus your soccer exercises at home to improve these 3 basic soccer skills:
There are two kinds of receiving a ball, on the ground and in the air, which require different points. Before the ball on the ground comes, you need to decide which foot to receive it. But when receiving a ball in the air, you need to decide which body part (foot, chest, or head) to receive the ball. You can use the wall to practice receiving a ball since you have no partner at home exercise.
Passing a ball is the same with receiving which require a partner. But once again, you can use the walls to practice this skill. You can give some marks on the different spots of the wall as your passing target. After you pass the ball to the wall, you will at the same time practice the receiving.
Shooting skills can be considered as an art in the soccer because it’s the one that decide the win or lose of the game. Shooting point is how to pass the ball beyond the goalkeeper reachable area. Use your makeshift goal post to do continuous shoots in several goalpost spots, such as the corner.
Complete With Building Your Body Strength
Playing soccer isn’t only about foot skills, but also the body strength so the players can keep running in the actual 90-minutes match. Before do the soccer exercises at home, you can start jogging and running around the neighbor as warming-up. But remember, soccer also involves another physical strength such as sprinting, turning, and jumping. Use your backyard to do these practices.
