1 Hour Training Session
This is a more intense and progressive training which will have a great benefit to you as a player. I have adapted the training to meet the needs of player who have the availability of all kinds of challenges in terms of equipment, space and ability. I will explain this in more detail:
Equipment - I have adapted a number of different training regimes for those blessed with access to large amounts of equipment likes goals, cones, agility ladders etc. While I also have training session aimed at those with little to no equipment.
Space - I appreciate there are some of you who have space for a whole football pitch in their garden while others maybe only have a small hallway to use.
Ability - Some of you are beginners looking to understand the fundamental aspects of footballing technique while others are seasoned players looking to achieve technical perfection.
All of you I have managed to develop training plans which will allow you to realise your dreams. If there are things missing that you would like to work on, or challenges you have in practise that I haven't managed to allow for please let me know and I will work to ensure that any player from any background has the opportunity to get the guidance that will make them a superstar.
Here is my advice on implementing the training to make it most effective in fast forwarding your development as a player. If you want dramatic changes you need to be doing this 2-3 times a week. It can be hard to find the time and everything you will help but if you serious about improving as a player it needs to be every week. 2-3 times a week will help you see dramatic changes, 1 hour a week will be effective but you progress a lot slower but do what you everything you can do will help you in the long run.
