1. The Ronaldinho Drill

A great stamina workout for football players is the famous Ronaldinho drill.

It is a vert simple drill, but it requires quite a few cones.

Here's what you do:

Put around 15-20 cones in a random order with not a big space between them (see picture).

Perform a dribble around them in a freestyle. There is no right or wrong, just try to keep tempo and get as many touches on the ball as possible.

See this video for demonstration.

Perform a dribble for 45 seconds, and rest for 1 minute. Do this for 4 sets.

2. 2m Square Dribble

This a similar drill to the Ronaldinho drill.

In this exercise, first set up a square with cones with around 2 meters between them. It is supposed to be quite a tight area.

The execution is simple. Perform a freestyle dribble inside of this square in a high tempo. Turns with both feet, inside and outside touches, tricks, sole dribble. Anything. You are supposed to go loss in this square, have good control and get many touches in.

You should do this for 30 seconds and be really tired. Be hard on yourself. No sloppy turns with no pace.

30 seconds dribble, 30 seconds rest. Perform 3 - 4 sets.
