Hi, I'm Ilen Bell, and I'm gonna discuss how to get stronger thighs and calf muscles for soccer. So why do you need stronger thighs and calves for soccer? Let's face it, soccer is a very intense sport, and it requires a lot of running. In order to be the best that you can be, you have to have a strong lower body. Let's go over four exercises that you can use to build your thighs and your calf muscles. The first exercise would incorporate using a leg press machine. Sit in the machine, raise your legs and place your feet on the platform. Push the weight up and use the safety latches on the side of the machine to disengage the weights. Lower the weight with your knee going towards your chest, and once at the bottom, push the weight back up to the top, and use the safety latches to lock the weights. The standing lunge is another great exercise that you can use to get stronger thighs for soccer. Using your body weight, or dumbbells that you're comfortable with, take a normal step forward and bend your front knee, lowering your rear knee towards the floor. At the bottom of the movement pause and return to the standing position. Calf raises are great exercise to strengthen your calves for soccer. Using a leg press machine, sit down on the machine and place the balls of your feet on the platform. Disengage the weight using the safety latches, and perform eight to twelve calf raises. Once finished, lock the weight. The next exercise for your calves is simple but effective, jumping rope. Use a good jump rope and go for about two minutes. It's a great way to effectively engage your calf muscles and make them stronger for soccer.
