A key to a passing team is retaining possession in midfield. Use this session to show your players how to keep hold of the ball in the middle of the pitch. MORE
Keep fit during the seasonal excesses
With the temptations that come with the Christmas season I thought all coaches – and I include myself in that – should be doing some crunching fitness exercises.
Here’s an example of a good one,
Abdominal crunch – knees up
- Lie face up, feet off the floor.
- Knees above hips, hands on ears.
- Keep legs still, crunch forward.
- Touch elbows on thighs.
- Return shoulders to floor.
Complete 3 sets of 10 repetitions.
Rest 60 seconds between sets.
