Topic: more drills less time

It's been stressed a lot before in just about every training section on here - quality over quantity.

I'd tell you the amount I do, but there's just too many variables (which drill, it's required effort), but I personally don't spend much time on a single drill.

It's not unusual for an ankle sprain to start swelling until the next day (according to a quick Google I just did). It just sounds like a typical sprain. Do the usual R.I.C.E treatment and it should be sweet. The right thing to do would to go see a physio, but we already know it's a sprain, and you ...

Topic: Plyometrics everyday?
Replies: 4

What is your goal here? Are these plyo's for quick feet or explosive strength? If the latter then no, not every day, a max of twice a week I'd say. It's very demanding on your muscles, even more so on your poor joints. If it's just foot speed type stuff then every day is fine.

Topic: Messi Strength - Would this give you it?
Replies: 5

A Lot of that is working muscular endurance (low weight/high reps). It's not going to help with 'messi strength'. If you want strength without size, you need very high weight, low reps. I mean less then 5 reps, with close to your One rep max (I believe 80% of your ORM weight is ideal, from memory). ...

Some of those were god-awful finishes! But in all fairness I guess they were half-mucking around.

You've come to the right man! For warm-ups, do dynamic stretching. I don't think I need to elaborate on this we've discussed it before I'm pretty sure. Start off with something to get your blood pumping, like a jog. The cliche' lap of the field should be suffice. I actually start off with some mobil...

I posted on bodybuilding.com's forum about all this and my situation, and they've also played down the home gym I'm looking at. They reckon I will out grow it way to quick. I'm still not ruling out the home gym, but within my budget I can afford just over 90kg of weights with 2 DB's and a BB, as wel...

Rome's correct, as always.

Four hours a day? That's a lot man, I wouldn't be doing that every day, or at least include a rest day weekly.

Hahaha, I was close! Nah I'm aware of eating them pre/during competition, but post-match I still believe would be effective! When are they going to release a study on this! Lol

Pele 's first ball was made out of rolled socks, he didn't get a proper ball until he played for his first official team. Even so you could bet that the quality of the ball wasn't too good. I have his biography and he says that they were an unwealthy family, they sounded right on the edge of poverty...
