When shooting for power, our follow through has a great impact on the result.
Landing on the kicking foot and allowing momentum to take us forward aids in the maximum velocity of the ball.
Of course, more goes into the technical execution of striking a soccer ball for power however the follow through is the final push necessary to fulfill the potential.
Following through requires effort, concentration and care. The small details are the difference between a memorable goal and a ball in the stands.
The importance of a follow through is about doing things in its entirety and not assuming its good enough just to make contact.
The habit of completion should be developed in everything that we start. It doesn’t mean we are going to score every time, but at least we gave it our best shot!
Yours in soccer,
