Increase kicking power
I have difficulty getting power into my kicks unless they are cross kicks. I was wondering if you have any tips of how to increase the power. I think it is a technique thing not a big lack of strength in the legs.
Take a look at the kicking tip I have on the site if you haven’t already. If you have, a couple of points to reinforce, first kick through the line of the ball, rather than kicking to the ball. Weight transfer through the ball gives power. You get more weight transfer by pushing off from your non-kicking leg when you go to kick also.
You’re right, it is a technical thing and it cones with being aware of your mechanics. Make sure that your head is forward and that your kicking foot isn’t out in front of your kicking leg knee when you make contact with the ball. Practice makes perfect.
