I'm playing a 7v7 tournament with some guys from Thailand. We won the game today by a score of 6-1. I got two of the goals. One was a grounder from about 30 yards out to the far right of the goal, that was a good one. It was really really easy. I started weight lifting again and am doing some cardio...

Just leave the regular insoles in and insert arch support insoles on top of them. They are not like regular soles, they are a little shorter so you leave the old ones in and put the arch supports on top of them. See your pharmacist for detail.

Nice Jimaldo, that is interesting that Rooney does no weight lifting, but that is his body structure.

It is correct, the Hip Flexors. Plyometrics, like high knees with great form will get you massive hip flexors. I've heard calves and quads are great for speed getting on the run quickly.

What is training like at the professional level?

I am interested to know what training is like playing at high levels like MLS, EPL, La Liga, Bundesliga, etc. What is a typical week like, what type of drills are done. Maybe we could get a professional player or two to take some time out of their day and fill us in. I think this would benefit a lot...

I did track and it makes you so much better when you have stamina, like 3x as good as you can be regularly. My advice is to do track and work your ass off on the hard days and on the light training days in track, see if you can talk to your coaches to let you practice with the soccer team. I ran the...

My financial situation is getting a little better so I will have transportation to the gym and food to eat to repair my body. We played a lower l...

Well, have not done much, school keeps me busy and I have no car so I must take the bus everywhere now. Our indoor team took 3rd place in the competitive league, which is good since the quality of the other two teams was high and there was not much chemistry in our group. My lower-divison indoor tea...

It really depends on how your teammates see you. On the team I'm currently with, I am the best player and it gives everyone a lot of confidence to see me playing alongside them. I rarely make mistakes anymore and it just grows on the whole team, they start playing fantastic. So when I give words of ...
