In this week's Champions League victory of Juventus over FC Barcleona 0-3 in Camp Nou, an aspect really stood out from the winner of the game: its fitness level.We saw all game long runs from Juventus' outside backs, midfields crashing the box at every cross and many runs along the game.The physical and fitness level of your players can play a massive role in your team's success. See how you can prepare your player for them to become unstoppable with coachbetter!

Have this physical circuit for your team as well, no matter what level you play in. You won't need more than 8 players and some poles/cones.

Activity Flow:

Overall information:

- All the drills are done at max speed, sprint
- In some stations there can be a teammate with ball
- Make sure to leave more rest time than the working time

1st station:

- Sprint from one cone to the other
- Once the cone is reached, play a pass back to your teammate (on the ground, volley, header, etc.)

2nd station:

- Have a player say a color to his working teammate
- Make sure the players get back to the first cone every time

3rd station:

- Start sprinting, then jump, then sprint, then quick change of direction then sprint, then slalom then a final sprint.

4th station:

- Sprint, and then the coach picks which move to make in the ladder (two feet, two feet sideways, one foot, etc.)


Organisation is as shown in the picture.

- Have many poles ready and cones from different colors

Coaching Points:

The role of the coach is very very important in this circuit:

- The intensity must come from the coach pushing his players (in a good way) to push themselves
- Quality cannot be dropped in the passes even once the players get tired

Variations available:

- Add more time
- Start with some plank or push up to combine strength and speed
- Add more teammates with balls
