Speed for soccer includes acceleration, deceleration, change of direction. Soccer drills that include quick first step, lateral speed and control, change of direction and start/strop are essential for the right kind of soccer speed to improve athletic performance. Utilizing resistance bands like Myosource Kinetic Bands during soccer conditioning will allow you to train in all these areas while remaining mobile, firing muscles and maximizing training time.
Resistance Bands are great for developing hip strength & hip stability, allowing the soccer player to enhance balance and rotational skills. Footwork can also be enhanced through a variety of ladder speed drills and offensive & defensive agility drills requiring the ability to move quickly in multiple directions.
Soccer is a game of constant movement, focus and concentration. Having the muscle strength and endurance to perform at a high level throughout the game/match will help a soccer player advance both physically and mentally. The Kinetic Bands will challenge the athlete to work harder; working to increase their strength and endurance level during every set and every rep.
