Hello and welcome to my blog on fitness for football players. Today, I am going to talk about the various methods through which one can keep the skeletal muscles, cardiovascular organs, metabolic organs, and the spinal cord strong and stable. Proper functioning of these organs with the elimination of stress factors can prevent the probability of fatigue, muscular disorders, and other issues related to the physical fitness of the players.
Foods and Physical Workouts
Football players have to maintain a strict diet for enhancing the intake of proteins, vitamins, and nutrients. Fat and cholesterol along with glucose can boost the energy levels of the body, as long as they are according to the nutritionist’s advice. The diet plan could be different for every player, depending on his present health and physical conditions. It will also vary, based on the playing conditions, glutamate, and other factors. A balanced diet with adequate consumption of water and vital fluids can keep the players fit and agile.
Physical workouts can be a critical influencing factor for the player’s lean and agile muscles, flexible body, and an active mind. The coach can train the players in athletic workouts, bodyweight exercise, aerobics, and Yoga, etc.
The football game can be stressful for the body and mind of the players. It can result in injuries, muscle pulls, sprains, and other forms of damages to the muscular fibers and tissues. The player may not be able to avoid the conditions which cause such injuries. However, they can take preventive measures by keeping their body fit and firm.
Stress removal methods include body massage, therapy, and Yoga, etc. They can be helpful as the short term preventive measures. However, the players may need long-term healing and curing methods for the muscular damages, sprains, pulls and other problems.
Chiropractic treatments are not only for the injured players but also for those healthy players who want to improve their on-field performance factors. Let’s take a look at how it works.
In spite of being strong and flexible, the muscles can suffer damages due to impacts (collision with other players, falls, etc), heat, continuous stress (running, ball handling, opponent tackling, etc), and other on-field accidents. Common consequences can be injuries, sprains, muscle damages, misalignment, etc.
Chiropractic adjustments can set right these issues from the spinal cord sections. The results can be considered positive due to the restoration of original conditions of the Para-Spinal muscles, spinal cord, backbone, and the mussels on the adjoining sections of the spine. So, muscle stamina naturally increases. They can endure consistent stress and load without breaking down.
Football players often experience fatigue due to lack of oxygenated blood. It could be a result of twisted nerves and misaligned veins over and around the spine. A chiropractor can restore the original alignments and stability of the veins and nerves. The result is a consistent improvement in the flow of oxygenated blood.
As a football coach, I have seen the positive effects of chiropractic treatments on the players’ fitness and health conditions. I can suggest the chiropractic methods to any coach who wants to see his players stay at the perfect fitness conditions.
