Over the course of my 20+ year career playing the beautiful game I have had the privilege of being trained and coached by some of the most brilliant soccer minds in the country. From IMG Academy, to the University of Memphis, Monmouth University and Lindsey Wilson College, I have acquired a profound amount of knowledge on my journey to the professional ranks. However, one aspect of the game I believe is the most underutilized in terms of self development is your weightlifting coach.
Along with the exceptional training your coach provides on the pitch, your college or high school weight lifting coach has the ability to boost your agility, speed and strength to levels not achievable on the field solely. This individual holds in his possession one of the many keys you can use to unlock the door to sheer athleticism. I put together a short montage of some of the best leg exercises I have learned from my weight lifting coaches over the years to make you more powerful on the pitch.
