There's absolutely no reason why you can't continue your education while simultaneously remaining dedicated to an intense level of training. You'd need time management skills, but I think anyone who has ever been in high school or junior high while training daily has developed this.

You are implementing some flawed logic here. Yes, some people will argue that you can't gain muscle and lose fat simultaneously. However, this is a highly debated topic. Furthermore, you are falsely attributing "working out" to simply building muscle and not burning fat. Really, it is your overall c...

Don't worry it's natural to be hungry when you're a teenager. If you're hungry, you should eat. Pretty simple.

The reason people do heart rate training, is because your body flips into anaerobic mode, whenever your heart rate exceeds a certain level, this is generally above 80% of your max. Below this however is aerobic, and doing aerobic work does many things. Just to make a quick comment, people often see...

Cut out peanut butter? No! Organic, non-processed peanut butter is one of the healthiest foods out there. I'd keep my serving size to 1-2 Tbsp because it is calorie dense but by no means does caloric density equate to it being unhealthy.

- Three times a week with the team (4-5 when in preparation for large events) - Twice a week in the gym (weights, treadmill sprints, some agility work) - Juggling, dribbling, and wall work periodically - Once weekly long distance run (more for personal reasons and a mental release) This is just what...

First of all, since you are new, I would recommend focusing more time on developing skills than the physical aspects such as speed, strength, and endurance. I recommend you watch games (on tv is fine, but in real life is better, if you have the option of watching a local team) to get a better idea o...

Guys! I never said that weightlifting was the only important thing. Nutrition is really number one, no question in my mind and I think both conditioning and strength are pretty close (at least in the mens game, I could easily get by without much strength training). Icy, I researched for a little on ...

Yes, but its not like one week of stretching and all the sudden you're Theo Walcott. Dedication to a program over a long time period of several months and you will be much more efficient in the categories of speed, quickness, and agility. It is definitely worth it, but you must be aware of this so a...

When i was 14 i done a 6 Mile run on the beach in donegal in 30-35 minutes. I thought that was brilliant seeing as its much harder to run in sand than in normal, its also unbelievably windy on the beach. That was a run at a quite high tempo and i still think i could have gone on for much longer. I ...

I was under the notion that arm movement simply helped propel one forward quicker. It is also a much more logical and fluid movement.
