Even if, in our opinion, the physical work must be done mostly without a ball, We conceive that sometimes the coach chooses to include the ball. We have already proposed variations of fitness exercises with ball, here are 2 fitness exercises 100% with ball.
Fitness training football with ball: exo 1
For this exercise, you need a square of 15m side delimited by studs, 2 balls and 2 players.
Each player starts from a symmetric stud (in the attached example, player 1 starts from pad A and player 2 starts from pad D). The player 1 drives his ball quickly (while controlling the ball!) To the stud B and makes a stop-ball, then he sprints to the pad C to recover the ball left by the player 2 who will have left at the same time (from plot D towards pad C) and he drives it by accelerating towards the last pad (D). The return is trotting to the starting block. Make 4 sets of 8 diagonals per player with 2′ rest between sets.
Fitness training football with ball: exo 2
You will need 8 studs, 4 hoops and 4 coustry-footballs with 1 ball per player on a rectangle of 25m by 15m.
The players start from the red plot at the top right, slalom with a ball by accelerating, bypass the plot, always at high intensity, they go around the four hoops then bypass the plot and, on the first 2 coustry-foot, they pass the Balloon underneath (gently to retrieve it after) and jump feet-joints over, and on the last 2, they make a big bridge. Make 3 sets of 2 laps as fast as possible (watch out for waste) with 2 ‘recovery between sets.
