Alternative warming up routine - running in chains

  • Organisation

    Running in lines in 4-4-2 on a string. The players are bound with each other by a rope (distances 7-15 meters). Set up of different colored zone cones on the sideline as shown in the diagram: Red cone - defensive pressing zone Blue cone - midfield pressing zone Yellow cone - offensive pressing zone/fore checking On the field ten balls or optionally also cones are distributed (see diagram for positioning).
  • Process

    The coach allocates the balls (cones) numbers. When the coach calls a number the player must move to the corresponding ball (cone). When they have reached their final positions there, they stand still and the coach corrects any errors. The coach can also call out a pressing zone (e.g. offensive pressing). The players in this case move together into the corresponding position.
