Need for Speed Carbon Video - One of the key weapons for any player is the ability to run fast. At the highest level, while almost everyone is fast, being faster counts more than ever. The difference of a few kmph can be the difference between a goal and a save! So what do you need to do to have that little extra in your legs? TRAINING!
Being slow, weak or too tired, even at the end of 90 minutes, is absolutely unacceptable on the football pitch. Regardless of the gender, players need to be able to run long sprints even in the last minute of normal or extra time.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN
On the pitch, being fast means a lot of things - it means, getting ahead of the man, with the ball; it means, getting the ball off of a man; it also means getting to common balls first, winning the ball in the air, getting into scoring positions and eventually, scoring.
To get that extra inch, you need to jostle for space. Jostling can be minimized if you have the added advantage of speed.
A good player may take a lot of time and training to get really fast. However, an average player, who's already fast, can look pretty good against better, but slower, players. Running speed automatically increases jumping and agility, making you a better athlete, overall.
