Make sure to read 'till the end to see our announcement as well!

When it comes to soccer, explosive speed and power can make a world of difference on the field. Whether you're dribbling past defenders or making quick sprints to chase down the ball, enhancing your explosiveness will take your game to new heights. In this blog post, we'll explore effective strategies and exercises that will help you or your child become more explosive in soccer.

  • Develop Stronger Legs: Powerful legs are the foundation of explosiveness in soccer. Focus on exercises that target your lower body, such as squats, lunges, and calf raises. These exercises build strength and increase muscle power, allowing you to generate explosive bursts of speed.

By "Stronger Legs" we don't necessarily mean, lifting heavy weights ... no, soccer players are meant to train their body different than body builders. Perfect example would be explosive workouts that will build the leg muscles more resistance repellent!

Here is an example of some workouts to do:

  • Plyometric Training: Plyometric exercises are fantastic for improving explosiveness. Incorporate exercises like box jumps, squat jumps, and bounding into your training routine. These movements train your muscles to generate maximum force in a short amount of time, enhancing your speed and power on the field.

  • Speed and Agility Drills: Speed and agility drills are essential for improving explosive movements during game situations. Set up cones in various patterns and work on quick footwork, change of direction, and acceleration. Practice drills like shuttle runs, ladder drills, and zig-zag sprints to enhance your explosiveness in all directions.

  • Strength Training: Strength training is crucial for developing power in soccer. Incorporate exercises like deadlifts, kettlebell swings, and medicine ball throws into your routine. Again, focus on explosiveness and exercises that improve your overall strength and explosive power, enabling you to win challenges and excel in physical play.

  • Sprint Training: To enhance your speed, dedicated sprint training is vital. Focus on short-distance sprints, such as 20-meter or 40-yard dashes. Perform intervals of maximum effort sprints followed by rest periods to improve your acceleration and top speed. Remember to maintain proper running form and drive your arms for maximum power.

  • Diet and nutrition: Eating a healthy diet and getting enough sleep are essential for maintaining a high level of fitness. Make sure to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

  • Sleep: Make sure to get enough rest through out the day, and also a deep sleep at night, which we'll make another blog about, to go more in depth in how to have a deep sleep.
