Hi, I'm Nick Webster. I'm here today to show you how to develop leg power for soccer. The reason why we want to develop more leg power is so we can run faster for longer, jump higher, right tackles and shoot the ball with maximum power. There are three activities I use to develop leg power for soccer. The first is the single leg workout. The single leg step up is an exercise that works for all the major muscle groups of the leg and you can progressively add difficulty as you go. Start with a stable platform that is one to two feet off the ground, place a single foot on the platform evenly distributing your weight across the foot. Step up onto the platform maintaining your balance and then step back down to the floor. Repeat for nine to twelve repetitions per leg. The second exercise I use is the down and up again. The dumbbell squats are a great way to strengthening your hamstrings, your quadriceps and your glutes. Have your feet slightly apart, have the two dumbbells in your hand stretched out and then lower your knees slightly to the floor. Do this for ten to twelve repetitions and then switch to the other leg. The last thing I want to stress is the muscular endurance routine. We do many of the same things in soccer so it's very important that we build up endurance in those particular muscles. What we can do here is set up four to ten balls for shooting practice, get them in a line and knock them into the goal one after the other. That will build up your hamstrings and your quadriceps.
