Leonidas Papadakis | Speed
You do not only show the ability of speed in its circular form (same repetitive motor skill pattern) but also in performing specific skills in the sport of football.
A simple and quick way for your players to perform explosive short sprints with the ball (particularly important football motor skill) but and without the ball, you see in the exercise below.
Create a square 15x15m.
Divide players into two equal groups and put them in the two corners. In one corner the players have balls while on the other not.The left player gives the ball to the right and sprints diagonally. The right (ball receiver) performs sprint driving the ball in the other corner of the square.
Return in a slow pace where players in the next sprint will change roles.
Exercise intensity: maximum effort
Exercise Duration: 1-2 sets x 6-8 repetitions
Stop: 30'' - 1' per rep - 3' per set
