Owen Hargraves Jr Always Getting Injuried

Post by dasfootball90 » 10 Apr 2011, 21:36

I don't understand why i get injury so much. I stretch for about 5 min before a game and I get injury. After every game either my knee is hurting, calves, or back. I think I my just unlucky. My brother called me after game, I told him i got a cramp in my calf after bending down to tie my laces. He called my the black owen hargraves because I can't play for at least 5 minutes without getting sub off because of an injury. How do i help my self from getting injured? and how can i fix these cramp in my calf muscules?

maybe you are not hydrating properly. apart from certain electrolytes and energy, your muscles need water to move effectively.

Well 1 if your stretching in the classical sense and not a dynamic stretch that has been proven to cause more injuries than prevent them.

Stretch 15-20 minutes of good stretching and a combination of dynamic stretching and static (dynamic comes first btw)

uhh no. don't even do static before a game/practice. AFTER only or your reducing your strength and increasing a chance of injury.

Are u serious..? I've been told by a bunch of coaches to stretch before, it lessens chance of pulling something

yeah theres a thread about it somewhere you decrease your power by 9% just by static stretching. The pulling part is also true too.

Nicks right eddy. What he's saying is this - Do dynamic stretching before-hand, and static after. Why? Static stretching decreases your muscle strength by up to 9% (This has been proven in a few scientific experiments), and also can increase the chance of muscular injuries. Static is good for post-event, as it more relaxes your muscles rather than preparing them. Do dynamic stretching (give it a Google) with a good warm-up before a game/training, as they are the most effective. I would also stay away from any sort of ballistic (bouncing) stretches, as they are a recipe for injury tbh.

man i understand u, i use to be like you, my calves always hurter, my hips, my hamstring, everyone tell me i would not be a footballer because i was made of paper or sh*t like that, so when i was like 15 i join a gym and make a nike sparq training program called bootcamp(without weight) and i don't know which one of those helped me but suddenly i was a fu**ing healthier than those fulks who criticize me, so the thing was i just needed to condition my muscle, so go get a gym membership and vitamins, search for the bootcamp pdf or go see the dr. :D

This is a key thing a lot of people miss. You can warm up all you want. (Although five mins is probably not enough as it is.) but water is essential. Then again, no one knows why some of us are more injury prone than others sometimes. Maybe you should stop playing football with hardened criminals? :p
