From the Coaching Manual: Activation Warm-Ups

These drills will help get your players ready for training through key muscle activations.

This practice involves players performing various activation exercises, in order to prepare for the upcoming strength and conditioning training. The prehabilitation exercises demonstrated help players to prevent injuries, restore biomechanics, optimise movement and ultimately improve performance. 

We're partnering with The Coaching Manual to bring you exclusive strength training exercises that you can implement with your club teams. This is drill one of our seven part blog series, which represents a complete S&C session for footballers.
