Maintaining Fitness

To maintain a certain cardiovascular fitness level, do you have to be doing weekly stamin routines, long runs, wind sprints ect... Or is it OK to maintain fitness with the cardio that comes from ball work? Use it or lose it - how much does this apply?

Yes I agree that your dribbling looks a little awkward. The one touch every stride thing is good to do, but take longer, more productive strides would be better. I understand that you have limited space here, but i'd suggest you take a longer initial touch to knock the ball out of your feet, and acc...

Haha I know mate, I am obsessive, but I'm more just curious, half of these questions I ask are just out of fascination, boredom, and making conversation!

Effects of Medium GI Foods

So if low GI releases slow energy, and high GI offsprings it rapidly, what about medium GI? I'd take it that a medium GI would do neither? Would The medium GI value be enough to make you feel lethargic later on? Because low GI offers a small change in blood sugar levels, I'd take it that medium woul...

Well maestri's are made from synthetic k leather (kanga-lite), so they shouldn't decondition like a traditional leather boot, but I'd put on a coat of leather protector anyway. You only need to apply it like once a month.

Overtraining Injuries

I usually train for a little over an hour in the morning, then a little less then an hour in the afternoon, but that's only like three/four times a week, so the other days are just once a day. I also have a designated rest day. I've been finding lately that I keep getting these pulling pains in my l...

nick117 wrote:30min-an hour within when you ended your training. also if i was a pro you wouldn't see me near a lollipop. newcastles fitness coach has a video where he says protein as soon as possible after training.
He must know something no one else knows, why is it recommended?

Your right expert, I know it seems like I'm trying to victimize myself, but this really is a big problem for me, it reduces me to tears a lot in all honesty. Good suggestion Collin, but only if I could.... My real dad is unemployed living an hour and a halts drive away. He lives off his government p...

Parents Don't Support Me

At the time of posting this I feel like sh*t. I just got into a fight with my mum, after I told her about a state titles tournament coming up, and that I wanted to trial for the team. I hesitated in telling her about it, and itcame out with little clarity, but she got pissed with me, and went inside...

sorry desire you're wrong. any website any person any coach will tell you and grill into you the faster after playing you can get protein into your system the better.

People don't play sports because its fun. Ask any athlete, most of them hate it, but they couldn't imagine their life with out it. Its part of them, the love/hate relationship. Its what they live for. They live for the practices, parties, cheers, long bus rides, invitationals, countless pairs of dif...
