Practicing when tired HELP PLEASE

Post by Shanghai-Shenhua » 18 Sep 2008, 07:40

When you practice a lot and get tired, does your technique drop? I was playing pick-up soccer for about three hours with two different teams (and before that, I had been practicing my touches with a wall for 3-4 hours a day for a week).

When I had finished playing, I decided to practice some free kicks, but almost all of them had no loft. Then I decided to do some long passes, but I couldn't get any good height and distance.

Normally, I can curl and dip the ball from a free kick to the corner of the net 4/5 times. Even Last week, I could do it just as well.

It's not like I was extremely exhausted, but I had played/practiced a lot during the week. Could this be the reason for bad form?

The absolute most improtant thing that a great athlete has to have is ALOT of REST. without it you wont go foward but go backwards.

But...even if your tired and dont want to train that day. Go out a little and juggle or dribble ..just to get some touches

You need to balance between practise and rest, after all rest is as important as practise. too much of either won't do you any good
