This video of goalkeeper training focuses on SAQ plus strength work specifically for Soccer GoalKeepers. This specific session shows the progression from strength work using Myosource Kinetic bands as resistance to agility ladder variations followed by some plyometric work. The video begins with a great soccer warm-up. It is imperative for any athlete to make sure they thoroughly warm up before full range of motion, soccer practice or a soccer game. Make sure to work on great footwork skill in each movement during these SAQ plus strength goalkeeper workouts. The soccer player in this video shows how the footwork is determined first before speed is added for the greatest results.
Soccer field players and soccer goalkeepers use different approaches in their soccer fitness training. The training difference is compared to a sprint runner track athlete and a distance runner. The training is not the same. Rarely does a goalkeeper have to run from one end of the soccer field to other, let alone over and over throughout the game.
Soccer field players trot, jog and sprint during an entire game. Their endurance level has to excel because they are in constant motion. Soccer goalkeepers training on the other hand must prepare to use burst of energy to catch blazing shots, use their foot speed to get from one end of the goal to the other, jump, bound, dive, dig and more when the ball is at their end of the soccer field.
Notice in the video that it is important to put on the Myosource Kinetic Bands correctly to achieve the greatest benefits. Myosource Kinetic Bands offer four levels of Kinetic Bands for soccer players / Soccer Goal Keepers from the beginner to the professional.
