Mannequin Training, Pep Guardiola, and The Triangle Training Method August 30 2016, 41 Comments
Penn State Men's Soccer Coach Bob Warming has been using mannequin training to develop successful players and teams for years. "Substituting mannequins with The Training Triangles has solved the portability, storage, transportation and other issues we've experienced while using full sized mannequins to train pattern play for the last 8 years" states Warming. But the PSU Head Coach isn't the only one beginning to seek a solution to the numerous issues with mannequins, as the list of Men's and Women's College, Club, and High School teams now using The Training Triangle is rapidly growing. Coaches can now easily implement mannequin training with their teams, without needing to haul full sized mannequins from a storage facility to the field everyday.
