Hey Matt , you should come to India and play in the Indian Super League here , you will love it.

Nicholas Chance

You should pause a bit more when you land during the lunges, skater jumps and broad jumps to better load the muscles. This also really helps with stability. With the box jumps you should spend as little time as possible on the ground in between jumps for explosiveness. Variation for kneeling box jumps could be jumping off a higher box, landing and quickly jumping onto a box that's a bit lower than the one you jumped off of.

BST Performance

Love what you do!! Keep up the hard work. Any advice for a new soccer vlogger?


Can you please make a video on football related gym work

Dope Bricks

My legs r tired just watching this

Ftbol Beast

Awesome video but I have a question , would these exercises help me in improving my agility n leg power ? Pls help me out..

lancedale peterkin

Hey Matt huge fan love your videos and all the hard work you put in but do you think you should do these drills every training session or no


Yo Matt could I get ur help on something ... I'm really nervous starting college d2 soccer in Kansas far from home (Cali) and I don't know what to do, I have super bad anxiety but I'm a really solid keeper and just worried about being homesick and not having my parents around at all :/

Nicky Mounkhaty

SERIOUS QUESTION: just joined one of the top soccer teams in the nation and i joined recently and when I went to training they were preparing for nationals and their shit killed me. They had to run a mile under 6 mins 3 times, and I passed the first time but was like a minute late the last 2 times, I vape a lot but i decided to fully quit, I can tell that shit has an effect on my lungs and stamina, how do I regain my stamina and get my lungs back to normal cuz I want to go back and compete at a high level. Is it too late? I hate myself for doing that and I wanna play at a high level. Plz any answer helps.

Agario Pros

Hey just a few question im going to do these excercises myself but for the first one you said 3-4 sets 5-8 reps for each leg, so does that mean like 5-8 times with the left and 5-8 with the right or 5 or 8 combined, and also how much should you rest between the sets? And with the fifth one its 4-6 reps but you are doing 3 jumps each time so does that mean 3 jumps, i go back and do that again for 4 times and then rest and then do that again for 4-5 times?



Ahmad Shohab

Why don't you answer your email?


Love these type of videos keep it up. Love the way u tell us how they help and the amount of sets and reps to do. Can u do a video on proper sprint technique wen turning corners and straight sprint . Thanks ?

Matti Isoherranen

What is your vertical

Lois Fernandez

You`ll be able to understand hard work if you follow this vertical jump plan. Seeing the results will need you to follow and execute a tough exercise routine. It break you down to rebuild you much better is i would put it. It took me two months to add Ten inches in my vert. I found this jump tip on Google. It is Julian Jumρosen
every good wish

Gustavo Fonseca

Could you explain the technic to not get injured in your next video?

Just for the lols



Love these type of videos keep it up. Love the way u tell us how they help and the amount of sets and reps to do. Can u do a video on proper sprint technique wen turning corners and straight sprint . Thanks ?


Nice bro ?

Giovani Ramirez

You should do sprints again but without the sand


he not ballin ballin no more

Regan Branch

What exactly is Episoketren System? How does this thing really work? I see lots of people keep on talking about this popular training program.

Michał Lewaszow

When do you practice plyometrics during season? Closer or far from game?

MC Fitness

Recently just subscribed to your channel as I’m looking to get back into football again. I’m a self-employed personal trainer so often struggle to find time to play due to losing out on a lot of business.

However, watching your videos has really inspired me to just focus on what makes you happy. I’ve changed my training routine to focus of functional performance, rather than just building muscle. I’m loving my training and I’m improving each day, keep up the good work, love the channel.

Roberto Quaresma

What will this benefit in


Great stuff man! (Skillshare too). SUBd

Andrew Schagen


weissam eid

Great exercises, thank you. Just one thing for an exercise to be called plyometrics u want to limit the aromatization phase as much as possible. The that transition from up and down , up and down need to be quick as possible for plyo. Example the skaters should be much quicker instead of pausing on the bottom.

Gylex Mainam

Next time, please do a video of your cleats...like real match and training cleats...

Utpal Bordoloi

Matt can you make more video on your match analysis cuz I'm right back too.. plzzz Matt... plzzzzz...


What does these things help you in the pitch?


It still amazes me how few views this video has.

Florent Lacasse Running coach

Asaf Iron-Jobes

How long would it take to do all of these

Arlo Crisler

What is Episoketren System? I've heard many amazing things about this popular training program.

Andrew Nguyen

It's good to see that your recovery is going smooth now, and that you're out and about with the plyometrics.

Juzz Tech

The second exercise is not plyometric

Nothing muchhh

Can I do speed drills after explosive

Chris Clarke

Do you have a degree

Eric Hui Athletics

Just in case you were running out of ideas for videos.... maybe you can go over your process of how you write your goals


Matt, your pick to win the world cup this time??

Kirby Russell

Hey just curious! Do you think that bladed studs will affect the way I play in the midfield?

Zach Sietsma

I love these 5 thing videos they have really been helpful

Max Z

Can we get an essential ab workout plan/six pack plan for soccer (although I know it is not necessary for soccer)

Nick 8

Great video Matt, I’ve been watching you for around 2 and a half years and with the help of your videos I’ve become a much better player


These exercises are good to do but the title is misleading. The reason why is because these are not plyometric exercises, they are ballistic. The reason why they are ballistic and not plyometric is because the ground contact time is far too long to be considered a plyometric exercise. Therefore the key phase of plyometrics is missed out.

William Neves

Dam u jumpe far


Helluva video. Got a 16 year old and a 10 year old who both play soccer. Gonna have them both do this over the summer.


I suck at jumping high ? I need to practice

Robin Danielsson

Rest time between sets?⚽️?

Hayden Mann

What are you’re thoughts on the games today. The Uruguay vs Egypt thriller, the own goal, and Ronaldo’s harry?

Roberto Quaresma

Jarryd Chen

Oh my God! Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge with us, I feel so happy to be able to watch this and exercise next to the best athletes, Thank you, guys!. <3 I love you-

Karina Estevez

Soy doctora, y debo darte las gracias muchísimo. El trabajo en medio de esta crisis es de por sí cansado y aunque mi rutina de ejercicios ya la hacía, no encontraba gusto y he de admitir que en varias ocasiones me la salté, estresada y agotada. Pero siendo aficionada del patinaje artístico y ansiando alguna vez poder conocer a todos los patinadores que vi en este vídeo , en especial de Stephane, sé que cada uno pone lo mejor de sí en esta pandemia, y precisamente porque debemos resistir y porque debo permanecer sana, volví a hacer ejercicio como nunca en mi vida. Salté, brinqué, me divertí muchísimo y sudé a mares, al terminar me di cuenta de que era justo lo que necesitaba. Gracias por esta hermosa iniciativa. ¡A seguir peleando! :D Posdata: los amo Maxim y Tatiana, siempre aspiraré a un amor como el suyo <3

Dania Carolina VA

Loved it!!!! Thank you Stephane and students, thank you ISU. I hope to see more videos like this one in the future, amazing!

Berika •

Hello @SkatingISU will we see any more videos with Stéphane?


Thank you guys - so happy to see you all healthy and well! It was such an awesome morning routine (I will be totally stealing that last stabilisation jump and incorporating in my regular home-gym sessions ;) ) Overall - waking up to do a live class coached by Stephane with some of the top skaters in the world - not too shabby for a quarantine Sunday! Take care and hope to see you on ice soon! ?

oana alexandru

I believe it's not easy to speak and think what you are speaking while doing those exercises. He has a great coordonation mind -body.
Stephane is such a great skater and I'm sure he will be a great coach too for all the skaters he coaches. A great guy. Can't wait to see Shoma's programs , I think they will make a wonderful team.
Thank you for beautiful video! Good luck and have a Happy Easter!


Thank you Stéphane! It was great to watch you all guys!

Wow I really can't do a bike jumps at all but I imagine my body somewhat appreciates the attempt

Thu Lekovish

Oh la la, my knees and my back! Just kidding. Great exercises. Merci, Stephane.

oana alexandru

He is also a very good pedagogue, he appreciates each one of them as they are doing the exercise, he pronunces their names and encourages them and that's a great thing for their mood - through this he is a very good psychologist too.
Wish he will get the best results with each one of his students.


Thank you, Stephane!

Morgyn Ember

Inna Litvin
