12 Soccer Touches in 12 Minutes
Do these 12 exercises for 1 minute each to enhance your soccer touches. This workout is a great way to get a ton of soccer touches (up to 2500) in 12 minute window. This is perfect for a technical team warm-up, or for doing on your own in your backyard. I encourage the players I coach and train that if they are watching a soccer game, go do this training at halftime when all the commercials are going to make good use of their time.
This training is great for a number of reasons. But the major factor is that it increases familiarity with the soccer ball on your foot. Think about it this way, people brush their teeth 2-3 times a day…some more, some less (no judging just don’t breath on me if less)…but the point is, they can brush their teeth with their eyes closed and give little thought to the action because it’s second nature. This soccer touch training over time will allow you the ability to have complete ball mastery and the ball appear attached to a string on the end of your foot. You watch players like Messi, Neymar, Suarez, Ronaldo…they can run at full speed with the ball in front of them, change direction, perform moves and the ball does exactly what they ask of them. To them, performing those movements are like brushing their teeth, they’ve done it so many times.
The next level, is that when you can run and dribble and trust your soccer touch, that allows you to get your head up to better scan the field so you can increase your soccer awareness and make better decisions with the ball.

In closing, this is a pretty intense training and will leave you winded. Always remember, we want quality soccer touches…not just to get through it. So push yourself, and if after 3-4 minutes you need a break, take a 30 second to 1 minute break. This will give you a fitness benchmark and the next time you train, try to get to 5-6 minutes before needing a break. Work your way up to 12 minutes without needing a break. That will let you know that your soccer touches workout is always doubling to improve your fitness.
