Game On: Soccer-Inspired Workout

by

[tps_header]Soccer is one the most popular sports across the globe. I started kicking the soccer ball around when I was 3, and played competitively for 18 years. It is one the best sports to play in your youth, as it instills the value of teamwork, determination, metal fortitude, and hard work early on. And let’s be honest, the athletic skill and execution that is expected each and every time you lace up is no joke. I was in the best shape of my life when I was playing soccer 6 days a week for hours on end.

Soccer is all about core stability, agility, power, and speed. With all of these elements in play, is it inevitable that you will be dribbling fast, scoring goals, and winning big. Whether you like soccer or not, the workout below will whip you (& your bod) into shape in no time. GOAL![/tps_header]

[tps_title] Core Stability [/tps_title]

Squats
FL_Soccer_700x700_01 Start in a wide stance with toes turned out. Squat to the center, stand up, pivot your feet to the left, and lunge down. Pivot back to the center for a sumo squat and repeat on the right side. 

 

Inchworm Walkout
FL_Soccer_700x700_02Begin standing, hinge from the hips, and walk the hands into a plank. Stabilize the core and keep hips in line with the shoulders as you lift the left foot and place outside of the left hand. Hold for 3 – 5 seconds. Step the foot back to plank and repeat on the right side.

Do each move for an entire minute, 3 rounds

    FABLETICS……BE AWARE MY FRIENDS!!!!!
    I am absolutely disgusted to notice that after ordering a top from FABLETICS they took £44 every month out of my account for a VIP membership I NEVER signed up for.
    DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!
    They had taken £176 from my account, without my knowledge! Look on their website feedback to see hundreds of people have had the same thing happen to them.

    FabLetics can’t be trusted . I cancelled my ties with this company in February, but; still are charging my credit card. I saved every transaction in which they forced me to buy something I didn’ t want because they WOULD NOT refund the money they took from my credit card. The BBB has been contacted about this issue. Never will I give them a good rating for they are thieves. Always check with your bank for frauds with this company
