6.Training session of specific endurance for winger / full back

Endurance »

The best workout is the one that resembles the needs of the game to the maximum extent.

Your team's side players are forced to drive the ball, to pass accurately, to run without the ball. Also, do not overlook the intervals that are forced to pressurize and in a fatigue state to end a phase. With the workout that we present you can work all the players that compete in these positions by dividing them right and left, and starting each pair at the same time.

Improve the specific endurance skills of your wingers and full backs by following the training below. This includes the variations in accelerations and decelerations necessary for the proper preparation of footballers, the corresponding intensity and time spent in high training zones (% H.R.) and the defined gap needed to improve the endurance aspects. The use of technical and tactical elements gives you the realism that is required for the ultimate training of your players.
