Exercises for optimum training preparation
Football involves sporadic activity, referred to as an intermittent sport. It involves changing direction, stopping and jumping movements as well as football-specific techniques such as dribbling, passing and shooting. These diverse actions require a football-specific warm-up. Carry out these warm-up exercises for footballers in addition to your team warm-up to optimally prepare yourself for your session.
Ideally, the warm-up should be carried out before the team workout. It’s basically advisable to stimulate your cardiovascular system first. Use light activity, such as jogging, to get your body moving before starting the mobilisation and activation exercises.
After your football warm-up, you should feel warm and ready to go. But make sure you're not exhausted.
Flexibility is important for preparing for strain. It helps reduce the risk of injury and improves technique and range of motion. Mobilisation is an essential part of any football warm-up.
After creating space in our key joints through targeted mobilisation, we then devote ourselves to activating the sports-specific muscles. These warm-up exercises for footballers improve power transfer, quality of movement, stabilise the leg axis and help to reduce risk positions such as knee valgus and rolling, etc.
