Warm-up

2. Transit mobility

The next stage of the warm-up increases the level of intensity and focuses more on transit movements that require the player to travel a greater distance. Use dynamic stretches such as shown here, not static stretches, at this stage:

  • Circle pass drill
  • Caterpillar pass drill
  • Ball pick-ups drill

Below are some examples of exercises which can be completed during the transit mobility section. The reps and time spent completing the exercises will vary depending on the players’ experience and the content of the session or match to follow.

  • Lead pass drill
  • Up and back drill
  • Sprints with and without cones
