have an endurance fitness orientated small sided game. In this example,
Red in his own half plays the ball into his team-mate's feet.
3) Red plays the ball in front of goal with 1 touch.
4) Red coming from deep sees his shot saved. Players work for 2 mins then 2 active players are replaced by two passive players. Thus, all players work for 4 mins & rest for 2 mins.
