Dr. Rajpal Brar, DPT and biomechanics expert breaks down Barcelona and Argentina legend Lionel Messi’s free kick technique, from run up to body shape to swing through to vision focus to mind-body feedback.
Here’s a table of contents, header (sub-headings):
– 0:00 Intro
– 0:25 The run up (angle, steps)
– 3:01 Body shape and strike (hip position, the strike, torso mechanics)
– 6:20 Eyes & mind-body feedback (focus points, neuromuscular feedback)
– 7:59 Consistent mechanics (compact & repeatable technique)
For those at work or the hard of hearing, I’ve transcribed subtitles on YouTube so sound isn’t required.
For reference, I’m a DPT well-versed in biomechanics, with sports rehab & performance clinics in West LA and Valencia, CA. Feel free to hit me with questions and/or you can always find me on IG and twitter @3cbperformance.
