From The Coaching Manual: Opposed Position-Specific Movements

These exercises add in a defender to position-specific movements to ramp up the intensity to your position-specific drills.

This position-specific exercise provides opposition for players, as the Goalkeeper competes against the Attacker, and the Defender competes against the Midfielder. Providing competition increases the intensity of the exercise and players also have to focus on the correct game-related movement patterns to succeed.

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 seven of our seven part blog series, which represents a complete S&C session for footballers.
