A game is a game no matter what level it is played upon, and when games are played without proper exercise beforehand, players can get seriously hurt without even being tackled. The football youth of today are probably the most informed than any other past generation. Kids today know better than us that they need to stretch and warm up before they do any rigorous activity because pulling muscles can be painful. We have no one but the Internet to thank for that. But the football youth still need guidance as to which exercise they need to do or the proper way to do them and that is where we come back in. There are numerous exercises that can be applied but it is necessary to single out those that are relevant for kids and make them perform only those.
Exercises make the body ready for rigorous activity. A warm-up is always good for the body and in this way the body can be thought of as a machine; it is always good to get a car started for a few minutes before you actually drive it. This allows the car to properly get ready to drive, and research has proven that it indeed helps the car become more fuel-efficient. The body works in the same way but the fuel efficiency for the body is minimizing the injuries. If muscles are not properly stretched, they can be pulled, which is both painful and not desirable for a professional athlete or someone desiring to become one as it means more time on the bench or home resting up the injury.
The football youth of today know the importance of exercise and thus do not object to doing it. Exercises relevant for the football youth can be squats, light jogs and an assortment of stretches, but what needs to be kept in mind is that these exercises must be performed in the presence of a qualified professional or at least someone with experience in the matter, like an older player or coach. Other than this, it is also necessary that before each game a certain portion of the game time is allotted to exercise and warm-up so that the football youth don’t hurt themselves. After all they are still young and have their whole lives ahead of them. They need to take better care of themselves and make this a habit if they want to pursue a career in football in the future.
Tips and comments
Exercise can never prove to be bad for you, whatever age you are or whatever you do. It is good to make exercise a part of your life at an early age or as soon as possible, especially for sportsmen or future sportsmen because every athlete requires stamina and that only comes from repeated and prolonged exercises. Besides that, a physically fit person is also mentally fit (with some exceptions) and so exercise actually ends up benefitting you more than you tend to comprehend.
