Weight Training Soccer: Discover The Benefits

How about if you get to learn that weight training soccer targets
improving strength instead of just increasing muscle mass,
particularly the development of muscle groups that support the
joints? For this purpose special fitness training programs should be
designed to let the players have some time, away from both the
field and the ball to work on target muscle groups.

This will result in improved mobility and flexibility for enhanced
swiftness and power.

Core: Technically the first area to focus on is the abdominals,
commonly known as the core. The part of the body below the
breast bone till the lowest part of the pelvis area is referred to as
the «core». This area is the source of power, the center of gravity,
and the balancing center of the body.

In other words, the core is where all physical actions of the body
are initiated from. Great abdominal cores also results in a well-
balanced back, most essentially the Lumbar area. This also
generates a good posture.

Legs: The quadriceps are helpful in pumping the heart. Hence they
are the major muscle groups of the body and provide enormous
amount of blood volume. So, even walking is good exercise in
weight training soccer as each leg helps the heart push a lot of
blood through the entire body.

A lot of energy is exerted in hitting the ground, thus it is very
important to have powerful and well-balanced leg muscles required
by the hips, knees and the ankles.

Back, Chest and Neck:The linking relationship between the core
and the ends is provided by these parts of the body. These areas
must never be neglected in soccer strength training because their
growth is linked with the rest of the body.

Arms: Arm is a useful part in playing soccer as they help in
maintaining balance like when you jump to head a ball or when
you suddenly alter directions. A powerful jump is made by throwing
the arms in the air.

Plyometric: For excellent result you should use both weight training
with carefully planned plyometric program. Using this technique
such players will be produced who will show good results in the
first half of the season.

Always remember to give importance to the core as only a well-
developed soccer fitness program to develop the core will
positively aim these areas.

Program: Usually a program that is calculable and particular to an
individual’s requirement should be applied at the start of the
season. Concentrating on specific areas of the body starting with
the core and searing outwards to each section of the body is vital
to the total development of an individual.

Finally it should be said that weight training soccer can be useful
by first preparing the players; as it requires the players and the
team to own the program. You can subscribe to our youth soccer
