How To Train Like Lionel Messi

Earlier this week we reviewed the new Nike CTR360 Maestri II Elite and discussed how important it was not only to have the best footwear when you’re playing the beautiful game but also how one needed to pick the right boot with the right strengths and characteristics that would suit their natural game.

Today we’re stepping things up with a brilliant offer – you can get training tips from the best footballer in the world, Lionel Messi, for less than a price of a pint!

A Lionel Messi Exclusive- Skills and Training

Lionel Messi talks exclusively to our friends at FHM about his heavily-customised training programme and what it takes to become one of the best football attackers in the world.

Messi’s rise to stardom, via the streets of Rosario and carefully nurtured by the doctors and coaches at Barcelona, is a blueprint for what’s possible for young, talented footballers if they have the right support structures in place. A key facet of this support is the right type of skill exercises and coaching, and you can read all about what a typical Barcelona training session involves and what skill exercises Messi undertakes to ensure he’s always at the top of his game.

This month’s FHM Bionic issue also includes an excellent interview with Michael Bisping, Britain’s best MMA fighter, who talks about the rules he follows to ensure that he stays at the very top of his game. The rules include:

Rule #3: Train Hard or Don’t Bother
Rule #11: Psych Out Your Opponent, Not Yourself ‘As soon as you’re in the arena, you’re playing mind games.’
Rule #19: Always Keep Your Eye On The Prize

The latest issue of FHM is out now, and full of articles to sink your teeth into. Soccerlens readers can get £1 off FHM, meaning you only pay £2.90, if you buy it online via this link.
