Maintaining Fitness

Post by desire10 »

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?
Everything you need, is already inside.

Hello Guys i think that keeping common fitness should be everybody's objective.There are many ways to get a lean body like:
Exercise continually and regularly
Use wide range to develop muscle durability and stamina.
Stretch frequently, before and after work out to increase flexibility
Pay attention to duration, or time period, of each exercise session.Thanks!!

It seems like doing sprints within your ball work routines are good ways to maintain the fitness.

Ball Routine -> Wind Sprints -> Ball Routine / Juggle Exercises -> Wind Sprints into getting the ball and jogging back across the field with it doing certain techniques -> Rest

Could be an example maybe? Just a suggestion, I'm getting back into soccer myself and have been doing this and it's helped alot but I could also be doing it entirely wrong too! :lol:
