44 test soccer fitness warm up drill

I call this soccer fitness drill the “44 test” because the players must run in the shape of a 4. This drill is so easy to set up that it’s useful as a last-minute warm up before a match or as an exercise to keep your players occupied while you set up your main soccer coaching session.

This soccer fitness drill works on your players’ agility, balance, speed and coordination.
