Functional Training for CB'S - Defenders in Possession


- Take a group of CB'S and work on improving their Range & Contact of distribution

- CB4 starts with the ball and passes the ball quickly across to CB3. CB3 then plays 2 touch quickly on the ground through the Gap/Mannequin to CB1. CB1 then passes to CB2. Players pass with the Inside of their foot.

2. Players now can play through the gap off 2 touch or they can play back to their partner who will then play through the Gap/Mannequin. Players play with the Inside of their Foot

3. Same sequence as above - Now players Drive it on the Ground. Once the ball has been played through to the other sid the 2 CB's must push-up together and get compact together.
