Players used to have a pint and smoke at halftime, and in the 1950s and 1960s, it was normal practice, with some clubs even providing complimentary cigarettes. Things have changed a lot since those days, and now it’s all about a player’s fitness. Working out, exercising, and eating a good diet are all part of being fit.
The most vital aspect of your game is fitness, along with accuracy. You will not be able to succeed at the highest level without it. Running around a portable futsal court for 90 minutes or more is a difficult job that requires using a variety of muscles as you twist, turn, and jump.
Why do players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney run up and down the football pitch for the whole of the game without swearing? Because it is their job to train like crazy outside of the game. They will train for the entire week, honing their skills and improving their fitness.
You should do the following to increase your fitness:
If you haven’t already, start jogging/running. Start slowly and progressively increase your distance. Aim to do this at least three times per week, jogging for 10 to 20 minutes if possible.
Look at what you’re eating and drinking; it’s not good if you spend half your life eating McDonald’s and drinking copious amounts of coffee!! Don’t be too hard on yourself; it will pay off in the long term. Try to eat three times a day, and don’t forget that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, as you’ve probably heard a million times.
And drink enough water to hydrate your body. I’ve discovered that drinking a glass or two of water before the night is an excellent method to hydrate yourself, and you’ll feel better in the morning. Water makes up 70% of your muscle, which is why you should drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. Don’t confuse hunger feelings with pains asking you to drink water instead.
Take Healthy Diet
Pasta, fish (mainly tuna), poultry, and fresh fruit are excellent choices (especially bananas.) Chocolate and burgers are still acceptable, but only in moderation. You will eventually feel good about yourself, and your desire for fatty meals will diminish.
Get Enough Sleep
Make sure you get enough sleep; an adult needs 8 hours of sleep per day. Don’t push yourself too hard, and take a day off in between workouts, or your body may grow exhausted.
Make a Chart of Your Activities
The most fantastic way for me to stick to something is to plan ahead of time. Write down what you need to do in your next training session and attempt to do it, add something to it the next session, and so on. Keep track of your steps and make a chart of your progress.
Use Stairs Also
You don’t have to join a costly gym to get some exercise; for example, if you don’t live in a bungalow, you can utilize your stairs and go up and down a couple of them for a few minutes at a time.
So, what do you have to lose? Start today and you’ll be fitter and more aware while playing football in a portable futsal court.
