Soccer Conditioning Drills
Conditioning is a key component for all soccer players. Most of the game is spent running without the ball. Soccer requires short sprints, long sprints, as well as long runs. The following three exercises will work on all three aspects of conditioning.
The first exercise is a half-field shuttle. The players run out six yards and return to the goal line. The players run out 18 yards and return to the goal line. Then the players run out to mid-field and return to the goal line. The target is about 32 to 35 seconds. Repeat five to ten times.
