Replies: 4
Views: 2163

Here is what I usually do: Two days before tournament I will do my last actual workout, one day before I will do a light practice just kicking the ball around, shooting, dribbling etc. During the tournament you want to get as much rest as possible so doing light workouts is a no no. As for eating I...

Well knowing you are doing it is the first step, just do sprints and focus on taking the optimal number of steps and eventually it will become habit.

I am going to point out the obvious, it could possibly be simple dehydration. Losing too much electrolytes when sweating will leave your body in shambles and you will feel terribly sick which would explain your symptoms. So try drinking a sh**load before you workout. Also you can drink Gatorade or m...

Well you are not going to be able to practice heading effectively on your own, so find anyone that is willing to help and if they cannot serve you a ball on the ground then have them throw it to you and then you head it on goal.

Oregon has a few strong teams and when it comes down to it Oregon and Washington are about even. It depends what age group your talking about really. I am going to use actual results to back my argument not some unreliable website (gotsoccer.com). If you look at the top teams which would be the aca...

Hate to break it to you but it hasnt really turned heads around the world. The USA are still regarded as a very mediocre nation. All the confederations cup has proven is that Italy wont win the world cup next year and that Brazil and Spain are more than beatable. Yeah, I agree. I'm just happy that ...

I have pain in a similar spot. Is yours up on the hip bone? Mine is and today I had it evaluated by one of the physical therapists for the U.S. men's national team. He said it was a strain in the rectus femoris. You should heat it before you do any activity to prevent more of a strain. Also when it ...

I despise pop music but I always enjoyed Michael Jackson, he made all around good music. As a person he did some sketch stuff but whatever that is expected from someone that famous. And to top it off Farah died.

I personally would go with the Legends, but you should probably try them all on and choose which feels best.
