Running Diagonals


Diagonals in powder snow on a soccer field.

Diagonals are a good winter hit out to work on your leg speed while not exhausting yourself like a genuine track workout. They'll get your heart rate up without breaking the bank. They're also a good session for when you've only got a field to play with and/or don't want to venture too far from home because of weather or safety. Like in heavy snow or travelling in unfamiliar areas. Diagonals Workout: 30-40 mins

10-20 min warm up.

12-20 hard across the diagonal of the field then a barely moving/walk jog across the short end. Move continuously and build them as you warm up. Concentrate on a good turnover and holding your technique together as you tire.

5-10 mins easy cool down.
