Cognitive training in football
Cognitive is the training that activates the athlete’s intelligence. Memory, logic, analysis, creativity, and speed of making decisions are the main points needed to win in the new intellectual football.
To develop these skills, you need to perform exercises to stimulate the functions of the brain and frontal hemispheres. Positive results will not be long, subject to the regularity of training. After 2-3 weeks, you can expect an improvement in concentration and attention.
