Can running on a treadmill improve your football cardio?
Can a treadmill make you slower on the pitch?
The answer is yes.
Repetitive movement on the treadmill at the same range of motion at a high velocity does not transfer sport specifics to your core, ankle knee and hip mobility requirements.
So it does not improve your cardio or skill on the pitch.
Definitely Good for marathon runners since their ligaments don't need to roll, bend and twist.
Doing cardio cardio like a professional boxer on the ladder activates & strengthens new muscle fibers every single time we learn a new appropriate movement with the ball or without the ball.
Using the ball challenges the brain to register a new skill by activating new sensory nerves on the button of your feet.
The brain is one of the only organs the burns more calories than any other organ in the body.
I put many football players to a cardio test on the ladder and on a treadmill.
I realized the treadmill is a waste of time for football players unless you're rehabbing a lower extremity injury or testing for a Vo2 max in a skill nursing facility..
I can go on for days and months why the treadmill is physiologically and biomechanically a waste of glucose and why it can lead to injuries on the pitch.
But you get the point.
Do you want to earn the respect from your teammates, coaching staff and the fans?
Your Coach's job is to develop your football skill and football IQ?
What are you doing on your own time to improve your speed,agility & quickness endurance?
Why is agility so important for players?
Quick feet with strong stable ankle joints is incredibly a must for football agility!
Being able to explode with quick feet can make a huge impact on avoiding tackle injuries, improve sprint acceleration cardiovascular endurance & change of direction mechanics to allow you to be the one to always get to ball 1st.
Cardio agility endurance is definitely one way to impress the coaching staff!
