Treadmill soccer dribbling. Is this the new challenge going across social media? Train insane or remain the same! That sounds good, but treadmill soccer can also be potentially risky, you could fall and break your neck…Professionally, as a coach, I do NOT recommend this exercise. I think that’s right. This looks fun but can also be risky. At the least, have the treadmill going at a slow pace when you’re dribbling the soccer ball. You don’t want to fall off and get injured. Still though, this is very cool and skillful.
This New York Red Bulls freestyler had a different interpretation of how he’d show off his soccer ball control. DJ Diveny (@djdiveny on Twitter) posted this video — below — across his social media platforms today dribbling a soccer ball on a treadmill, while his colleagues appear to introduce cones at random points as obstacles. In addition to his talents as a freestyler, Diveny is also a youth coach with Student Athlete Coaching & Consulting, based out of New Jersey.
As someone posted online, “I can barely run on a treadmill. Then, there’s this dude dribbling a soccer ball AND avoiding cones on a treadmill.”
This young kid is incredible. He has amazing skills on the soccer ball. And on the treadmill. Be careful though! While it looks fun and all this is pretty risky. Maybe best to work on your soccer skills on some good old grass!
