Will I progress if I do something or will I fail to progress. * O= Overload. To be able to achieve your highest level of fitness possible every now and again you must overload you body. * R= Reversibility. This is what will come when you stop training your body goes back to what it started with. If I aim very high I probably won't achieve what I wanted, all I wanted to do was to improve a little bit.

What it does. * It helps prepare you mentally. * It increases heart rate and blood flow. * It warms muscles and makes them more flexible (Much like a elastic band) * Warms and loosens joints. * And it also reduces the risk of injury to the muscles and joints. * After at least 20-30 minuets move on to the main activity. When in activity. * You should always respect the equipment. * Make sure you are playing on a level playing field. * Make sure it's clear and hasn't got glass, sticks and stones etc. * Make sure you are warmed up. * Make sure you aren't playing with a injury. Warm down. * First, do some jogging and other gentle exercise. * Then do some stretching. Pay special attention to the main joints you used. What it does. * Prevents soreness by keeping the circulation up. * More oxygen reaches muscles to clear lactic acid away. * Loosens tight muscles so they won't get stiff later. * There is also evidence that it helps you perform better next time. * At least 20-30 minutes. (It's just as important as the warm up.) ...read more.
