Description

Overstretching for a pass or mistimed tackle can put a soccer player out of action for months - muscle tears, tendon and joint injuries are all part and parcel of the game. However, many of these injuries are preventable, in particular by better preparation of the leg muscles. Professional and amateur players alike must have enough muscle strength to withstand games full of short sprints, sudden stops, and scissor movements that push the knees and surrounding areas to the limit. This volume provides expert information on how players can improve their strength, and protect their joints and tendons through guided training both at home and in the gym, as well as advice on improving flexibility and nutrition.
