Description

Soccer is a sport characterized in general by fast and intermittent sprints, direction changes, kicks and passes for long periods of time with "active rest" in between.  This workout will help you keep in shape for the activity so you can perform better and avoid injuries.  

Your legs, feet and torso will do much of the work, your knees, feet and heels will suffer great loads  and impacts which means you have to have lots of stability in your lower limbs and core. Your arms sometimes will be used to throw the ball.

To gain strength is to develop the ability to support and move higher loads than before by recruiting more muscle fibers and to use them more effectively for a short period of time.
