The Beautiful Game

Session: Willis


On a beautiful evening in Wandsworth Park, six beautiful men played the beautiful game. Myself, McD, Ruge, Robbie, Dave plus a new recruit Hector who works with Dave and at 29 had 10 years on most of us.


Tonight’s session was football based. After 3 warm up laps of the cricket pitch, we split in to two groups and did three different circuits that involved some ball work, running and exercises.

Circuit 1

Short one-touch passing, short sprints and exercises with no rest. We alternated two exercises increasing the reps each time:

Press ups  5, 10, 15, 20 reps

Plank builders  5, 10, 15, 20 reps


Circuit 2

Dribbling round cones and then two different exercises:

Burpees  5, 10, 15, 15 reps

Plank twists  5, 10, 15, 15 reps


Circuit 3

Longer passing, some more running and exercises but fewer reps:

Spiderman press ups  10, 15 reps

Plank crunches  10, 15 reps


We finished off with a football trivia quiz in the same teams. 10 questions, 3 possible answers but with a quickfire option if you knew the answer. Team getting the question right nominated the other team to do an exercise of their choosing. Overall a strong level of football knowledge, particularly from Ruge while Dave excelled on anything pre-1990.
