Weaving her way through cones while dribbling the ball is important for developing acceleration and deceleration techniques. The soccer drills
also improve her ability to change direction with the ball in her control. This sport-specific training is great for soccer players who want to get in shape and improve their soccer skills on the pitch.Weight lifting
is also very important for athletes like Mitts who have a petite physique. Dedication to a strength training regimen will give smaller athletes the power to compete against opponents whose natural size trumps theirs. Check out: Heather Mitts Dumbbell Row With Hold
