Tactical Periodization: (Game Minus -1) or The Day Before A Game Exercise


This is a position specific possession exercise done in a very small grid using 2-touch maximum.  The players do not cover much ground at all, I put in a no contact rule as well.  The goal is to work the ball from the center backs through the midfield to the striker and back.  Players enjoy this exercise – it keeps them sharp and in rhythm using small amounts of bursts.  I would suggest using this type of exercise for 10-15 minutes the day before games.  Be sure to pick up my book “Tactical Periodization Made Simple” on Amazon.com – Also my Online Cognitive Development Course will begin on March 15th – sign-up at http://www.soccersmarttraining.com
