At this point, Germany isn't really playing that well. Sure they're getting the job done with a 1-0 win against austria, but it wasn't that much more progressed than the 2-0 defeat at the hands of Croatia along with what now seems like a mediocre victory against Poland. Few real chances created and ...

I would strongly advise you not to do Air Alert 3. I did air alert 2 and a) it took a lot of time b) i didn't gain any vertical c) a lot of people have reported developing knee injuries as well as muscle imbalances after using it. I would suggest a weights program combined with plyometrics or if you...

I ran a 5:18 a while ago when I was 14 ( I'm 17 almost 18 now) and that was timing on my wristwatch at our school's track. I was also in very very good shape. I'd be interested to see how fast I could run it now.

Watch some Fabio Cannavaro and John Terry clips. They are great tacklers and it helped motivate me to become a better defender by being aggressive and tackling when necessary.

According to fifa, John Terry appears to be one of the strongest in the game.

Idk, but I've seen a video where Oguchi Onyewu EASILY benches about 265lbs 5 or 6 times. I know that doesn't mean hes the strongest, but it gives one an idea.

Selection of national teams U.S.

How exactly do they go about making selections for the national teams in the United States?

I heard that a top ranked U-18 club team beat the U-17 U.S. national team pretty handily. Anyone else hear about this? Is this the sign of a major flaw in the system?

Our ODP program here isn't very good. The team is made up of a bunch of individuals and kids that have been on the team from previous years. They also suck big time when they play other teams, but I think Colorado's ODP is pretty good.

if you're playing soccer on these off days, you guys think that would be sufficient for plyos/agility and even cardio? unless of course you don't play very hard. lets face it, you cover all 3 in a soccer match. this is a good basic program for soccer. if you don't have any weights, find a local gym ...

bench press obviously is not the most important exercise for a soccer player. however, a little mass/strength in your chest and upper body area can't hurt, especially when you're playing against very physical teams, collisions happen. i know a kid that had two collapsed lungs cuz he took a shoulder ...

well, speaking to a pro football player, they really don't run very much. he said a lot of short sprints, agility drills, and lifting weights. he told me he was in better condition in high school because they ran a lot more, which could just mean cardiovascularly. neways, our high school team runs a...

meh, our high school american football team is in better shape than most of the pros. 40 or 50 kids on the team, all 11 starters play both sides of the ball for a large majority of the game.
