Innovation and variety in goalkeeper training? Today, not only are balls simply shot at the goal, but a lot of methods and different equipment are used. New stimuli can be set in goalkeeper training by using aids.
The TOGU Jumper is ideal for coordination, strengthening and stabilization exercises in goalkeeper training. Due to the trampoline effect and its vibrating property, a vibration transfer is made to the whole body. At the same time, the automatic balancing movements activate the deep muscles and stimulate the nervous system. These effects are ideal for meeting the physical demands of today’s goalkeeper game. Especially in the various techniques of one-on-one, impression or cross play, a pronounced body tension is of great advantage, as this provides a better basis for defusing situations in the best possible way.
Effective exercises in goalkeeper training can therefore be combined quickly and easily with the TOGU Jumper. We from Goalkeeping Development work with the TOGU Jumper very regularly in individual training as well as at our Keeper Academy locations to be as varied and innovative as possible and to be able to offer our goalkeeper training permanently on the highest level to our goalkeepers. Also our founder Michael Rechner (goalkeeper coach Profis TSG Hoffenheim) regularly integrates the TOGU Jumper into the training of professional goalkeepers.
Exercise 1: Upper body strengthening combined with basic techniques from the basic position
The goalie sits on the TOGU Jumper and trains his abdominal muscles. At the same time he receives balls for one-handed or two-handed fists or catching. Due to the automatic balancing movements of the upper body this is an ideal exercise to strengthen the torso muscles. Afterwards he trains catching, basket or falling from the basic position next to the Jumper.
Exercise 2: Back strengthening combined with basic techniques from the seat
The goalkeeper lies on the TOGU Jumper, receives balls thrown by the coach to catch and strengthens his back muscles. Afterwards he trains catching, basket or falling from the seat or kneeling position next to the Jumper.
Exercise 3: Leg strength combined with the movement of a flank
The goalkeeper stands with one leg on the TOGU Jumper and receives balls shot by the coach to catch. Thereby the leg muscles are strengthened and the balance is trained. Afterwards he pushes himself over the TOGU Jumper and trains the impression and the sequence of movements when catching a cross.
