Lower Body Strength Building for Soccer Players

  • Seated Machine Squeezes -Groin Strength.┬áThis exercise occurs when you’re seated on a machine and the machine resists you as your squeeze your legs together and work your “inner thighs.” Unfortunately, you’re not working in a functional way, and your body views this as entirely unnatural.

Your inner thigh /groin muscles help you bring your legs toward mid-line in walking, running and other activities. They also function to raise your hip and knee, and help with movements such as: walking, hiking, climbing, standing from a seated position, running, moving side to side, and other movements that require stability in standing.

The movements of running, sprinting, moving side to side occur in soccer.

Notice one thing, in common, amongst these activities. They are all standing, and they all require the use of more muscles at once. If you don’t train the lower body in the way it works, it responds by … Read the rest


Future Of Hoverboards

You have to have a Tony Hawk-sized bank account to get your hands on one of these bad boys. Don’t believe me? A 5-minute ride (with assistance from Hendo staff) costs you one hundred bucks, a duplicate board without a hover engine (so just a bit of fancy wood, really) will set you back $449, and an actual hoverboard is $10,000. Sure, that’s a ton of money, but concurrently, it’s a freaking hoverboard, one which you might essentially own and ride at any moment. It’s time for you to start saving!

The hovering action isn’t as severe as Marty McFly’s board. The Hendo Hoverboards will hover about an inch above the ground. I’ve seen several negative people out there, whining how the hovering action is small. I’d much like to remind you that this is known as a first gen hoverboard, knowing that the one inch Hendo lets you hover … Read the rest


Freestyle Scootering

Freestyle scootering is all the rage these days. If you had fun playing with kick scooters as a child, there is a great chance that you will still love it even after you have grown. You will be surprised at how slim and lightweight they are now, and you will love the many things you can do with it despite its size.

Kick scooters used to be ideal only on flatland. You can probably still remember how shaky the handlebars get when you pass through uneven platforms and cracks on the roads. These days, you can use this sporting equipment on any terrain, including parks and streets. Their solid construction makes them perfect regardless of the material or terrain they get in contact with.

Some of the most adventurous scooter users use their equipment on stairs, rails, and handrails. A few even manage to use them on gaps and speed … Read the rest


Coach Youth Soccer

Philosophically, youth soccer programs, especially for younger ages should have the focus of the game that is fun rather then a game that is to be won. There will be plenty of time for competition in years to follow. When you coach youth soccer and your new to the game, you should keep a few things in mind.

  • You should try to balance playing time among players. Game time is playtime for young soccer players.
  • Your job as coach should be one of observing and smiling with minor course corrections made at halftime. Most of your time should be spent encouraging.
  • Be a positive role model to your team. After all, they really did come out and join your team to have fun.
  • Use practice for teaching and leave the games to the players.

Sounds like a tall order doesn’t it? It probably doesn’t remind you of coaching that you … Read the rest


Get Kids Off the Couch

Lead by example. It will be hard to get your kids off the couch if you aren’t doing it yourself. If your family doesn’t exercise regularly, start going on walks together after dinner or consider taking a fitness class with your children to get them involved. When your children see that you enjoy regular exercise and observe how it benefits your life, they’ll be more likely to join in instead of resisting.
Keep screen time to a minimum. Although most kids today watch television, surf the Internet, and play video games, it’s important that screen time is limited to several hours a day and eliminated before bedtime to ensure a good night of rest. Although kids may fight this change at first, limited screen time means that kids have the opportunity to play outdoors or engage in other creative activities.
Include friends. To add a social element to exercise that … Read the rest


Analyzing Soccer Games

Videotaping the games

One of the best ways to study and analyze a game is to tape it. The advantage you have is you can watch it as many times you need to, and study the minute movements of the players on the field. You can pause the game, fast forward it to the interesting part, and rewind it again to repeat a particular section of the game. The facilities help to understand the game plan, and how players implement it during the game. A study done for a full season involving the Everton FC soccer club of England revealed many facts, which were not disclosed to the general masses. For example, a particular player was shortlisted, and his every move studied in details. The results indicated that the player ran for 8,800 meters on an average per game. Moreover, the actual running involved walking, jogging, cruising, sprinting, and backing. … Read the rest


About Car Rally Racing

“Rally” is a term, as a motorsport unit, probably has dated back from the very first Monte Carlo Rally that was run in January 1911. Very few, if any at all used the term “rally” again until the late 1920’s. The sport of rallying can be traced to 1894 Paris-Rouen Horseless Carriage Competition. Prizes were given to the automobiles by a jury according on the findings of the spectators who were passengers in each car. The winning award went to Albert Lemaitre who drove a 3 hp Peugeot. However, Comte de Dion finished first but was disqualified because his vehicle was powered by steam.

This occasion led to an era of city-to-city road races that took place in France as well as other European countries which initiated several of the types of racing in later car rally racing. Some of the new features added were cars racing against the clock … Read the rest


Choose Longboard Wheels

  • Downhill: This is perhaps the most dangerous discipline that long boarding has to offer. That is because we are dealing with high speeds, precision, high speeds an high speeds. That’s correct, when you clock ninety miles per hour while bombing a hill, as we call the actual descent, it gets pretty dangerous. And also lots of fun. Besides wheels, at that speed you need precision trucks, a board you can really depend on and good bushings. You need the kind of precision to turn a corner by a hair. The wheels for that are usually what we call fat-lipped wheels. Large, basically, with a flat construction, as opposed to the rounded base the sliding wheels feature. Do not go for the higher durometer, stick to the lowest one that can carry you. The density of the wheels is measured by the durometer. For heavier riders there’s generally a 90a, 93a

Quick Drying Wet Soccer Boots

  • Let the laces loose. Loosening laces opens up your cleats getting more air in them, hence hastening the drying process. When you let the cleats dry with the laces on, you also expose the seams to tension because they contract as they dry. Loosening the laces is therefore also helpful in eliminating this kind of stress.
  • Remove the shoe insole. Most cleats come with removable insoles. Such insoles are convenient because they give players the chance to change into more comfortable and supportive ones as the situation demands. They also come in handy when looking for a quick way of drying the cleats. Removing the insole does not only help the shoe interiors to dry faster, but the insole will also dry faster by itself. You can wrap it up with paper towels or hang it upright using clothe pins or pegs to hasten the process.
  • Wipe off grass, dirt
