Complementry Sports to Improve Soccer

There are many components of fitness for soccer and there are many skills that are relevant to the game. It is not surprising therefore that many soccer players have a good all-round athletic ability and can participate with reasonable competence in a range of sports. Invariably they have to abandon these other interests to concentrate on soccer if they are to realize their aspirations in the game.

    The value of a specific sport as a training stimulus is reflected in its average energy expenditure. Even so, sports that are physiologically demanding may be unsuitable if there is a risk of injury. For this reason cross-country and downhill skiing as well as contact sports should be avoided.


    Sports such as volleyball include jumping and co-ordination activities without a necessity for physical contact. These games may be employed for low-intensity activity the day following a hard training session. Alternatively, the principles of play may be modified with the ball being played with the feet or the head. In this way games skills are practiced in an unobtrusive manner and in a relaxed circumstance.

There are occasions when soccer players may not be able to take part in normal practices and have to find temporary alternatives. These circumstances include times after injury, times when travelling or staying in accommodation which has gymnasia facilities and times when weather conditions preclude training outdoors.

So lets see how different sports and training methods helps a soccer player to improve his athletic abilities and consume calories in energy production.
We will see the list of number of sports which consume calories and produce energy as well as train our bodies for every specific part.

The amount of energy which will be consumed is discussed according to body weight of persons defined as 130 lb, 155 lb, 180 lb, 205 lb.
