Plyometric vs Strength Training

In young soccer players strength training was more effective for developing strength, speed, and lower limb functionality. To keep injury risk low you should always train the opposing muscle! Here is the research:

Thank you for sharing that research. It's interesting to see that strength training was more effective than plyometric training for developing strength, speed, and lower limb functionality in young soccer players.
