Only Talent is not Enough in Football

Though talent is an essential fundamental to achieve success in football, it is still not enough. Only talent cannot guarantee success. Take the example of all the successful players. They worked their way to the top with dedication, hard work and discipline. Having a never-give-up attitude is also required. Otherwise we see many talented players surface and then fade away as quickly as they come. To reach your full potential, you need a lot of commitment and faith in your abilities and also the confidence to get you where you want.

Importance of Workouts

If you have your eyes on elite football then also be prepared for some strict workout regimes. You need to make these part of your daily routine if you wish to excel in soccer. With these workouts you will remain in shape and these will prevent you from injuries as well. These drills vary from strength or power training to agility drills and more.

Mix of Drills

A coach can guide a player which exercises or drills they must focus on for peak performance. Generally they need to focus on building physical strength and increasing stamina to be able to run continuously while in action on the field. Coordination and speed drills are also required. In strength training, you focus on major muscle groups whereas speed is improved with sprint training and other agility exercises. Overall, a workout can have a mix of cardio, agility and strength exercises that may include squats, push-ups, pull-ups, lunges and more. In addition to this, plyometric exercises can be included for increasing speed.

Optimizing Performance with Customized Workout Plans

Other than fitness drills and gym workouts, a professional coach can guide you on nutrition and other aspects of a healthy lifestyle required for elite footballers. You get to understand the importance of warm-ups and other tips that can help to prevent the risk of injuries. For optimizing performance, a coach must include position or skill specific drills and tailor the workout plan according to individual needs. A good coach would customize your workout plan according to your strengths and the position you are playing at. For example defenders would need drills focused on strength, speed and agility and goalkeepers will  focus on agility, core strength, footwork and coordination workouts.
