How to Improve Your Football Skills

Remember though, while physical training such as muscle, cardio, endurance and speed are all important- it is also required that you eat a healthy and well balanced diet.
1 Running; try to run about a mile or two every, or every other, day to keep your speed at its peak level and also to increase speed. Time yourself and try to beat your times ever few days. The best time to go running is in the morning before eating, this is when the body is able to build up speed and train more effectively.

2 Weights; either buy a small set of dumbbells, or go to the gym once or twice a week to lift, push and pull some weights to keep the fat burning and the muscles growing. Never lift a weight that is to heavy, you need to comfortably lift the weights about 20 times in each hand. It is always more effective to lift lightly but more times. Be sure to train the legs by going on the leg weights, and lift lightly for 5 minutes then switch to middle weight for 5 minutes before going to the heaviest possible weight you can push or lift with your legs for a few more reps. Go either in the morning or at night, but not after you have just eaten- and remember to drink plenty of water during the exercise.

3 Ball Control; with a freshly pumped up football run around or jog around your garden with it, keeping it within your control, by tapping to one foot and the next in a forward and side to side motion. Be sure to keep doing this until you have complete control, and you can do a few laps of the garden (depending on size) without losing control at all.

4 Goal shooting; simply set up your goal, either with an actual net or just two markers to line out the goal. Now, with a football simply shoot it into the net by targeting where you want it to go and then trying to shoot it at the exact place. This will train your targeting, control and ability to aim. Try all sorts of scenarios, but be sure not to damage anything behind the goal area.

5 Watch matches; you can learn and train very effectively by watching Football matches on the television or internet. Watch how the players tackle, score, save, kick and intercept. You can learn from their tactics, use them and customize them to work for your ability.
