Action planning Training schedule Introduction The exact components I am hoping to improve in my action plan is my muscular strength. I will be looking to improve on my static strength (being able to use my body strength when still to hold of a player) and dynamic strength (using my muscle power in arms and shoulders to drive my legs faster). Fitness is another component I will be looking to improve to a new level, as recently I have realised my fitness has reached a plateau level where my fitness has levelled off. I now hope to improve my fitness to a new level by pushing myself harder in the course I have set out, which has increased in length as well. The final components I am looking to improve on is my skills that I am not as strong as in the game, which in particular I will be looking to improve more on my right foot using it more in training and practising heading as well. Starting position It is obvious that a starting position is needed to be known so adapting each of these components can be achieved through comparing it to how the staring position of each component was at. In terms of working at home I have never set out to work on my upper body, as I normally work on endurance of the body by going on the treadmill and rowing machines. Now with my training plan I will be looking to increase my upper body strength with a set plan of how I am going to work at home, and focus on my arms trying to stick to the reps I have intended to do. My progress will be me re taking both lateral hang and sit up tests to see if I can improve on my scores, that are stated in my assessment of week one progress. ...read more.

This helps to get use to attacking the ball and powering the ball downwards making it harder for a keeper to get down to save. Next practice is to get a team mate to throw the ball high into the air around the penalty spot and for the player to attack the ball heading it into the empty net. Then put a keeper into the frame to get the player picking a spot of the goal more. Next development is then to get team mate chipping the ball into the box from edge of area out wide and player rising to meet the ball and score past the keeper. A defender can then be introduced so attacking player has to lose marker to meet the ball first and try find the back of the net. Final drill is crosses coming from the left and right alternatively at pace, so the player has less time to lose his marker and get in position to meet the ball and hit the back of the net. This drill is crucial to practice again and again as it helps develop belief at being able to get on the end of crosses and to score from it. Game situation This is when I play on a Sunday at eleven a side and 5 a side at night. This is where I hope to start seeing rewards from my training and other work I put in, transfer to the game situation to improve my weaknesses in the game. My knowledge of results I hope to be me scoring more goals with my weaker foot which will hopefully will hopefully not be a weaker foot no longer and be able to meet more headers in the box from crosses. My knowledge of performance will hopefully be me knowing that I can score with both feet at ease and after the game I can reflect on my performance knowing I have adapted my game more from the trouble I cause defenders. ...read more.
