Become A Better Soccer Player With Footwork Drills - Mobility Defense
Are you looking for a new soccer drill? This mobility defense drill can be a great addition to your training sessions. Space out several cones at an angle to mimic defensive transitions. Throughout the exercise you will rotate your hips back-and-forth as you move in reverse.
When you move through this exercise try to keep your shoulders towards the beginning position. Just rotate your hips as you run backwards. Whenever we are playing defense during a soccer game, we have to keep the offensive player in front of us. By training this way you will learn how to keep the offensive player in your sites as you change direction as they move. When you become more advanced you can add an offensive player to this exercise. Have an offensive soccer player dribble the ball at an angle down the field. As the defender transitions from cone to cone it will feel more game like.
Notice in the drill you will also utilize the Infinity Hip Bands. The Infinity Bands will help activate your legs as you move through the exercise. By increasing strength throughout your legs you can train with soccer specific drills and get the results you’re looking for.
