You only live life once man, if you really love football and want to make it your life, go for it. If you give up now and stop training, later on yoyr going to find yourself rediscovering yoyr love for it eventually, and you will think "i fu**ed up". Trust me, if you give up on your dream, when Braz...

If you go 110% like its been said you should I think its really hard for you to train past 2 hours... It depends what type of work your doing though.. In high intensity training camps you train 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. But if your training on your own, you do a lot more work that if you would ...

Well it's getting better that's the main thing, I'd give it another 2 weeks, and if it's not at least nearly better by then, go see a physio

No more than 2 hours all up is what nick means.

It depends on the person, some people may be able to train longer, bit personally I can only do 100% intensity for at most two-and-a-half

Lifting weights CAN make you slower, but ONLY If you train nothing but muscular endurance (low weight, high reps). This would essentially work your slow twitch muscle fibers. I'm not sure if it would actually make you slower, but you certainly wouldn't get any faster training this way, as you need t...

That was a brilliant post panch', amazing. Balance is important of cause, I'll second this. I won't elaborate on this because panchester has said it all. Don't worry about not improving, you will. I am kind of plateuing right now, but I stick at it because I know I will get better, it's not even pos...

You initially said you were athletic, but you've listed speed and quickness as weaknesses? You can jump high, but your heading is inaccurate, well that just cancels out the former really. Aggression isn't essential for a fullback, but it's preferable. Judging from what you've told us so far, I'd say...

Do I Need My 'Maintenance Training'?

.. Well, for example, right now I'm training my foot speed. So I do two sessions a week to improve this, and two other sessions I do are 'maintenance routines', which involves training all the other aspects of my game, just vaguely, to keep my skills sharp. Do I need these type of sessions to stop m...

I think its still a matter of confidence.. Confidence can definetly make you or break you.... If you are religious, saying a little prayer humbling yourself out to God always helps... In my case, I tell God how much I trained, how much I wanted to make this team or play well in this game, but that ...

Great advice Rome, but I mislead you bu saying it was a "trial", it was just a one-off try-out, the team didn't take me in. Thanks Scott, and especially you Met, I've actually been considering a pre-game ritual, I just don't want a religious one were if stuff one thing up or something comes up, I im...

Improving Calmness & Composure

Well, how can I improve this. Is experience the only key to unlocking composure, and a cool head on the ball. Read through my last blog - here, I talked about how I lacked composure. I'm mostly talking about in th sense of receiving, turning, and then passing it on. I'm looking at getting some other...

If your not tall enough, compromise - train your explosive power/vertical leap. Weights and plyo's my man. For heading in general? If you can find a training partner, get him to whip long balls towards you, and ou just practice clearing them away with your head. Once you've got it down pat, kidnap a...

I live in Australia, I couldn't be any further away from you unless I was an Eskimo so I'm not quite sure how pathways and trials work up where you are. Hopefully someone more accustomed to the northern hemisphere can give you a hand with that. But your question about the EPL digging into the MLS? S...
