What has always been “common knowledge” in architecture and from round to round in the tower building game “Jenga” is becoming established rather slowly in sports. In modern soccer, too little attention is still paid to a broad basic athletic base.

What follows are injuries, imbalance and limited performance potential. We'll show you how you can work on your ideal foundation through specific training during the winter break — so that you can really ignite after the second half.

A lot doesn't always help much. Even during your training during the winter break

As we already did in Part 1 for the perfect training for soccer players during the winter break mentioned, you should enjoy your hard-won winter break first.

Training during the winter break is the key to success

But speed is not the only thing that benefits from — in the truest sense of the word — “strong” athleticism. More power gives you a more stable base position in air battles or ground duels, less vulnerability to injuries as well as minimizing the negative effects of muscular imbalances.

A soccer player's strength program should therefore consist primarily of functional exercises such as squats, lunges, push-ups, pull-ups, etc., because these also promote the interaction of small muscles.
