“This traning session is one of the first during the regular 18/19 season.”
16 players (wihtout goalkeepers) were divided into 2 groups of 8 working on rondos with exchange of positions to balance the formation shape, rondos’ developments to finish and in 1 v 1 sequences to reproduce a micro-situation of the two prior exercises. The final game was totally free to have fun.
The two first practices were divided into 4 series of 4′ each, with 1′ rest (40′ total training time); I added two series for the second exercise to run a variation when defenders won the possession.
The 1 v 1 duels were carried out for about 20′ (3 groups of six).
As I required a huge awareness to the three first practices, I gave the players more than 25′ for their final match (8 v 8), asking them to play with the highest intensity possible.
