A great way for a soccer player to improve not only their game but their life in general is to have a daily morning routine in place.
In this video I go over what I believe the best morning routine for soccer players is. I give you a routine that you can easily use and also customize if you wish to add your own activities as well.
I also supply you with my daily routine so that you can get an idea of what a routine from someone who has done this for a long time looks like.
I can’t stress enough how important to your development having a good, progressive morning routine is. It can literally change your life.
Here is the routine from the video. My personal one will be below it.
Best Morning Routine For Soccer Players #1: Early bird
It is important that you get up early. If you are waking up at 10,11 or 12 on most days, then something needs to change. I know it can be a pain to get out of bed, but it will only take you about 5 minutes to start being alert and ready. I recommend getting up somewhere between 7-9.
Best Morning Routine For Soccer Players #2: Morning water
During sleep, your body becomes dehydrated. So it is important to drink at least 1 glass of water as soon as you get up. Not only will this re-hydrate you, but it also has some good health benefits. It helps your body wake up and I also believe it helps increase blood flow which makes you feel more awake as well.
Best Morning Routine For Soccer Players #3: Quick stretch
It’s always good to relax and loosen your muscles after they have been still all night. A nice gentle full body stretch is in order. You only need to do about 5-10 minutes of stretching, but you will feel so good afterwards. You’ll also feel more relaxed and awake.
Best Morning Routine For Soccer Players #4: Breakfast
It is essential to get a good breakfast in. However, we don’t want to eat too much. I generally have either eggs on toast with a banana or avocado, or oatmeal with a banana or avocado. This doesn’t have to be exactly what you have, but I would make sure you are getting some carbs in. I would also avoid cereal like it’s the plague. It is terrible for you.
Best Morning Routine For Soccer Players #5: Light workout
Time to get some touches on the ball. Make sure your food has settled and then head out for a light 10-15 min workout. I usually do 100 juggles alternating feet, then 25 one foot and 25 on the other. Then I will do 10 ball to wall passes and trap with the inside of my foot with both feet and then do the same with the outside of my feet. And that’s it! It’s a good way to get a light workout in which will wake you up, but it also helps you get touches on the ball.
Feel free to add other activities to your routine. Be careful to not add too much because you don’t want to overwhelm yourself. Below is my morning routine so that you can get an idea of what a customized one looks like.
1) Wake up early
2) Glass of water
3) Full body stretches
4) Check Simply Soccer
6) Light workout
