Here is a stretching sequence and a hip mobility series that would be great addition to your soccer conditioning program.
In the video clip below Michael Cano, of ONEighty Athletics, takes a group of athletes through a warm up stretching series and follows that with a series of exercises designed to increase hip mobility. Both of these sets of exercises would be beneficial for soccer athletes.
