One of the best training exercises for soccer and many other sports is something that many people enjoy doing for fun anyway, however, it has been largely under-utilized until recently. That exercise is jumping rope.
Why Should Soccer Players Jump Rope?
Jumping rope improves balance, coordination, agility, and overall speed. It also improves hand and foot quickness. It increases strength and aerobic conditioning, develops explosiveness, conditions both the upper and lower body at the same time, and encourages efficiency of movement.
What’s more, it can be done alone, almost anywhere, and the only pieces of equipment needed is a good jump rope.
How is that for a great exercise?
