Speed and agility training is a priority for soccer players.
On the field, you're in an upright posture, performing quick, choppy steps on your mid-foot as you pass or dribble the ball. You have to train to angle your foot so that it hits the ground with maximum power and drive your legs with your hip muscles, or else your positioning might slow you down. Your knees need to move up and down like pistons, pushing behind the center of mass to drive your body forward. And the balls of your feet should hit the ground first.
FC Stars speed & agility drills will help you get the right form and be a force to be reckoned with on the field.
