Motor learning takes lots of repetitions over multiple training sessions and a good nights sleep. Make sure to do things slowly for the first few sessions and then work on increasing speed and intensity.

youth sports: competitive balance or stacked teams vs losers

I'm curious what most benefits youth soccer players: similar teams where the outcome of each game is uncertain or teams where groups of all-stars dominate lesser teams. Parents naturally want their kids to be winners and to play on a dominate team. They will do all sorts of things to stack a team wi...

You must be doing the bench press right if you feel it in your arms more than your chest. Most big benchers bring their elbows in and use their triceps and shoulders as well as pecs. If you put your elbows straight out with a wide grip, you will feel your pecs working harder, although you probably w...

So is cycling. The important thing is to stay within a safe zone where you do not risk injuring yourself...

I was recently invited to play on a local men's team in a rec league (nothing really serious). They liked my sprint speed and put me at right back for our first game last night. They like to try to get offsides calls, so I spent most of the game running down breakaways. I'm going to have to do more ...

Magicfeet, did the cut heal up okay? I just read about an outbreak of staph infections in several American football players and the symptoms reminded me of yours. Just a thought.
