"This is fantastic, it's different to anything I've come across and I have no doubt this will have a positive impact on goalkeeping everywhere." Ben Foster, Manchester United, West Bromwich Albion, and England Goalkeeper.
Birmingham, UK (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
To succeed in today's fast paced and demanding world of soccer, a goalkeeper needs two crucial things: great technique and functional fitness. Functional fitness is a person's physical condition for the actual movements and actions they complete in a match. Being able to bench press 200kg is not one of them.
Originally released in DVD format only, and just for the UK market, Richard Lee’s “GK Icon Workout” is the product of lengthy and focused development, and has been specially designed to address a goalkeeper's technique and fitness in one unique footballing package.
Now, Bennion Kearny is delighted to announce the release of the GK Icon Workout in download form, for the first time, for a global audience. Designed to improve a goalkeeper’s keeping skills and overall physical shape, it is destined to become a key part of goalkeeper training for players looking to succeed and excel in this most demanding of positions.
The video aims to teach viewers how to:
- Train like a Professional Goalkeeper when away from the Training Pitch.
- Develop Specific Goalkeeping Movements and Boost Functional Fitness.
- Improve Power Output and Muscle Memory for Basic and Advanced Technical Movements.
The workout program is designed for all ages and abilities, and there are six main sections: Warm Up, Cross Taking, Shot Stopping, Fitness, Distribution, and Flexibility, all of which are designed to help develop goalkeeping properly and effectively. Comprised of various goalkeeper drills there is a particular focus on footwork, spring patterns, increased power output, and improved accuracy of distribution. In turn, there is a special bonus section on skipping for improving cardiovascular fitness and footwork speed further.
About the Creator: Richard Lee is a former England Under-21 goalkeeper who spent 10 years at Watford FC and who now plays for the London team: Brentford FC. Richard is also one of the founders of the GK Icon Goalkeeping Academy, and author of the acclaimed book:
