Get The Soccer Edge With This Simple Technique

Soccer is a great game. With so much running up and down the field and fast paced passes you can really feel your adrenaline pumping. As you play soccer regularly as a forward you have to practice stopping on a dime-sometimes almost literally. Your spine and nervous system take the majority of the beating while your knees and hips do the rest. You are not only stopping quickly but you are changing direction which puts strain on your lower back and spine. As a goalie you may jump in all directions and fall on the ground. You can hyperextend your back and hurt your spine. With regular chiropractic adjustments you can keep your spine and nervous system in top notch condition.

But of course you may not endure severe injuries. You may only see your performance decrease as time wears down on your spinal health. Over time-if left unattended-this regular wear and tear can reduce your game. It can have an effect on how well you play and how quickly you can run or jump or change positions on the field. It can be the difference between winning and losing. But there are ways you can avoid this and keep your game in top notch shape on the field and off.

Improving your sports performance can be done using a combination of regular practice and chiropractic care. You can improve your health with regular chiropractic care whether you are a young athlete with aspirations of professional leagues or you are a weekend warrior who wants to continue doing sports as you age. Performance chiropractic care will enhance your overall health and reaction times to ensure you are at your best on the pitch.

Brian Haynes the winner of three American Professional Soccer League titles. Says: "Chiropractic helps to prevent injuries and speeds up the recovery time when you are injured."

US World Cup Team says: "As the season progressed, virtually every player (had) been adjusted. Some enjoy it for its preventative approach, and others appreciated the relief it provides them when they have been injured."

When you turn to regular chiropractic care as a soccer player it helps your joints and your extremities. It can give particular assistance to your ankles and knees which are prone to the most damage when you play regularly.

You can ease lower back pain and get adjustments before a game or during halftime if you play professionally. This can help reduce the number of nagging injuries which occur on the field. If you want to improve your game and your health you need to recognize that your muscles and scar tissue can cause problems in soccer. When you use chiropractic care it can help reduce the number of sore muscles or scar tissue that develops into bigger issues.

You can reap many benefits from regular chiropractic care for your game and your health. Train hard and play hard so you can play at your best, but if you are looking for that "gold medal edge" than see your performance care chiropractor.

Let's Understand Your Soccer Shoes

Whoever loves to play Soccer or Rugby needs a pair of shoes which not only protect the feet but enhances one's performance also.

Common features of soccer shoes

Soccer shoes have come very far from its earliest design. Nowadays it resembles more of a sneaker which does not cover your ankle.

Soccer shoes contain studs below the soles to enhance the grip of feet on the ground. A plastic studded shoe is appropriate for solid surface, whereas a rubber or screw studded shoes are good for grass fields.

Customized soccer shoes

These days' players are wearing and buying shoes of their own choice and according to their specific needs. For this, they are making special demands from the seller. For example, if one wants to improve grip on their non-dominant feet, then they can wear screwed-in studded shoes which improve grip on the surface. Players who want to improve the performance of their active leg (right or left leg) can buy rubber, plastic studded shoes.

No matter what you buy, you should definitely take note of these things before buying your shoes.

  1. Select good brands – If you want to invest in good shoes, then why not choose a trusted and good brand on the soccer field. A good brand manufacture shoes by considering all important things which are necessary for players and their performance. Therefore, in order to save some money, do not buy any substandard soccer shoes.
  2. Decide your budget – When you go to the store or scroll down some online page for buying soccer shoes, always plan beforehand how much you are going to spend on your shoes. Suppose if you are a beginner then there is no need at all to buy expensive and high-end professional shoes. Go for simple yet comfortable shoes.
  3. Know your feet size- a perfect fit is all you need for a good soccer game performance. Whenever you go for buying new shoes, always give importance to your feet comfort. Try two, three different brands as everyone has different feet shape and every company / brand cannot give you your style or perfect size. Therefore, you need to look for your own preferences and priority before buying any shoes. Your feet should easily accommodate in shoes and your fingers should not touch the end of the shoe. The gap of ½ or ¼ inches would do the work.

What you can do break in your new soccer shoes

  • Put on your shoes and keep it wearing at your home while completing your general routine. Do it every day at your home. Within 3-4 days you will be comfortable in your new shoes.
  • Wear your socks and shoes and then soak your feet in lukewarm water for 15 minutes. Your feet and shoe would align with each other comfortably. Tie your lace and then you can play your game without drying your shoes. Automatically it would get dried up and when you will put off your shoes, you'll find it has aligned itself with your feet shape and comfort.

List of the Most Famous Soccer Stadiums in the World

Unquestionably and undoubtedly the most popular sport in the world is soccer. Soccer is a sport that is viewed by literally billions of people every year and those people continue to tune in every year to see more and more of the world’s greatest sport. Fans usually participate in watching soccer from inside the stadiums, some of which are truly incredible works of architecture, some of which many have even been built using Texas coatings and Texas scaffolding. Amongst the thousands of stadiums in the world there are a few that specifically stick out as being amazing places of history and tradition where fans have gathered for years upon years.

One of the most famous stadiums in the world right now is Wembley Stadium in London, England. Wembley is famous because it is the official home of the England national team, known by their nickname the Three Lions. The current Wembley, however, is not the original and most famous one. The original Wembley Stadium was incredibly iconic, known around the world as the home of football, with its beautiful twin white towers on both sides of the entrance. But, the old one had to be torn down in the year 2000 due to the fact that it was very old, having been built in 1923 and it was decided that it would cost less to build a new one than to upkeep the old one. Although the fans have not necessarily warmed up to the new version yet, certainly as memories are made by the team in the stadium it will be received better.

Another of the most famous stadiums in the world is the Nou Camp in Barcelona. To fully understand the importance of this stadium, people must realize the history and importance of Barcelona football club. Some people in the Catalan region in which Barcelona sits are known to support Barcelona because they support Catalan independence and a new country away from Spain. Needless to say, when Barcelona FC plays at home there is a crazy and frenzied atmosphere. The other part of the importance of the stadium is that it is currently the largest stadium on the European continent, seating a maximum of 98,787 people. The stadium has also hosted a few different European Cup finals, further cementing its legacy as one of the world’s greatest stadiums.

Lastly, there is a stadium in South America that is one of the most famous in the world. The stadium is called the Maracana and is located in Brazil, and is the official home of the Brazilian national team. Having won five World Cups, more than any other country in the world, the stadium has certainly seen its fair share of excitement of the years. It seats 90,000 and is the biggest stadium on the South American continent. Furthermore, when the World Cup is hosted in Brazil in 2014 the arena will serve as the host for the final, typically meaning that it is the most important stadium in its country.

Architecture is important to the structural integrity of buildings and there are numerous methods that can be used to make sure that buildings stay intact for many years.

The Amazing And Often Strange Coffee News Highlights Of 2014

2014 was an exciting year for our beloved coffee, some good, some bad, some strange. As we approach the end of the year we’ve taken a look at some of the more notable stories of 2014.

December: A Time For Giving… But Probably Not Cocaine.

December, time for giving and the warm feeling when we see others open their presents. These acts of generosity were put to the test in Berlin when a local coffee roaster opened up their latest shipment of coffee from Brazil, to find it contained 33 kilos of cocaine! We’re unsure whether they had a hearty Christmas smile on their face, but we’re presuming confusion and fear was a more likely response. They reported the «shipment» to the police and Santa.

November: Peak Coffee Prices

Coffee prices reached their peak in 2.5 years during November. The dry weather in Brazil that has affected much of their yearly crop played a significant role in the increase. Much of the speculation now is how this year’s drought will affect the crop in 2015. Although there have been rains over recent months, the question still remains as to how this will impact the flowering of new plants over 2015.

Many are predicting that if the weather returns to a semblance of normality, then the crop should be roughly the same as 2014. If weather continues to become more extreme then production would fall below the levels of 2014.

October: Cup North

A little closer to home we saw the inaugural «Cup North», a coffee party for all coffee lovers in the north of England. Put together by the local coffee community it was a chance for the spotlight to shine on the culinary and coffee developments outside of London.

While the focus was on coffee, the 2-day event also promoted beer, chocolates and some of the exciting «foodie» developments in and around Manchester. Let’s hope it continues for 2015.

September: Coffee & Biofuels

There are many known alternative uses for leftover coffee ranging from an effective compost, to being used an odour remover for whiffy socks. One of the most exciting developments of 2014 was the new company Bio-Bean.

Set-up in January by Arthur Kay, the company takes the used coffee grounds from London coffee shops and turns the waste into an advanced bio-fuel. In September they received a €500,000 grant from the Dutch Lottery.

Although widely suspected as a bribe with which to increase their scores from the UK during EuroVision (OK I made that bit up), the money will help the environmentally green Bio-Bean expand their operations and build a plant large enough to handle the processing of the collected coffee grounds. One gold star for Bio-Bean. A great idea and good luck for 2015.

August: Coffee Theme Park Given To Green Light

If you’ve ever dreamed of visiting a theme park with a giant caffeinated mouse, then August may have been the month for you. Funding was granted to develop a 64 acre coffee theme park in the Gangwon Province in South Korea.

The area has seen lot of development ever since the announcement that the 2018 winter Olympics were going to be held in the area. Designed as an environmentally friendly family theme park, the location will also house a production, roasting and distribution facility. Presumably the latter won’t be of interest to the kids. A distribution roller coaster with embossed livery on the side doesn’t really appeal to children.

The project will however create over a thousand jobs for the local community and feature a resort and coffee museum.

July: Fresh vs. Instant

In July the Euromonitor International Study published their latest research highlighting the continuing growth of instant coffee in countries that historically were associated with tea drinkers, namely China, Turkey and India. Almost half the world prefers instant coffee to freshly ground coffee.

In the UK, although the coffee market maturing and we’re seeing a greater understanding of fresh and gourmet coffee products, the instant coffee market continued the gain strength especially when being consumed at home. Quite surprisingly in the UK us Brits are responsible for over a third of all instant coffee sold in Western Europe.

While it’s still often viewed as unacceptable to offer instant coffee in many social or business situations, when at home these malleable rules seem to go out of the window. Convenience in many situations wins over quality.

Part of the growth was attributed to the marketing of instant coffee, many of the words traditionally reserved for fresh coffee were finding their way onto packets, jars and bags in the supermarket. One product describes itself as the world first «whole bean instant»… we still have no idea what that means!

June: World Championships

June saw the winner of the 2014 World Barista Championships. The title eventually went to Hidenori Izaki of Maruyama Coffee Company, Japan. The judges awarding him the prize after evaluating all contestants on a selection of criteria including their cleanliness, creativity, technical skills and presentation.

Hidenori was the 15th winner of the competition, produced and held by the World Coffee Event (WCE). The annual championship was held in Rimini, Italy and was the culmination of many local and regional finals throughout the world.

Congratulations to all participants especially Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood from the UK who eventually came in 5th, yes we are showing geographical bias.

Final Standings

Champion: Hidenori Izaki, Japan

2nd: Kapo Chiu, Hong Kong

3rd: Christos Loukakis, Greece

4th: Craig Simon, Australia

5th: Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood, United Kingdom

6th: William Hernandez, El Salvador

May: Coffee & Cows

It seems that used coffee grounds can be used for almost anything! Starbucks partnered with a Japanese manufacturer of contacts lenses in the hope of turning leftover coffee grounds into a viable and environmentally friendly livestock feed for the Tokyo dairy market.

The fermented grounds were removed from the stores at Starbucks and incorporated into the food for cattle. The process has been tried before but the results showed that the coffee acted as a diuretic among the cattle and the high salt content was a concern. Apparently the new process includes lactic acid fermentation that ensures the feed produced became a viable option. Again, we have no idea how this works, but it sounds very impressive.

April: UK Barista Championships

If you mentioned the World Championships during April most people (probably tea drinkers) would immediately think of the F1 Grand Prix in China, or the start of the Snooker World Championships with its whispering and dapper waistcoats. To the creative coffee folk of the UK, April could only mean one thing; the build up to the Barista World Championships had begun.

Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood who took home his second title ultimately won the regional UK Barista Championships, held during the London Coffee Festival. Congratulations to Maxwell. With the award firmly tucked under his arm he would travel to Italy to compete in the World Championships in June. Flying the flag for the UK… probably without a waistcoat.

Feb/March: The Football World Cup

Much of the speculation during February and March was around the football world cup and how the Brazilians passion for their national sport would affect the coffee industry.

With around a third of all coffee coming from Brazil, the concerns were that the games held in Rio De Janeiro would disrupt the production, delivery and overall infrastructure of the coffee industry. At the risk of sounding anti-climatic it all worked out OK, even if it didn’t for the Brazilian football team.

January: Myth Busted

We’ve probably all heard the old wives tale that coffee causes dehydration. We’re told that we should drink a glass of water for every cup of coffee we consume. Where this theory comes from we have no idea, but research released in January from the University of Bath concluded that this was actually a myth.

Rather than cause dehydration, moderate coffee consumption actually hydrates us in a similar way to water. Personally if I was stranded in the Sahara with the choice of either a cup of coffee or nothing, I’d certainly choose the former… but only if it had cream… and sprinkles.

Denis Law Was the King of Stretford End

The great Denis Law was born in Aberdeen on the 24th February 1940 and he began his soccer career as a wee boy playing for Aberdeen Lads Club. When Law left the Granite City to join the once great Huddersfield Town, he was only 15 years old and and it did not take him long to make his debt debut for his native Scotland against Wales in 1958.

The legendary Sir Matt Busby reputedly wanted the promising Denis Law to play for Manchester United but was turned down by the Terriers. Bill Shankly, who was the manager at Huddersfield Town at the time, then tried to take Law with him to Liverpool. However, the Liverpudlians didn't have the money to take the prolific marksman out of Yorkshire. Instead, the vastly talented Leeds Road youngster went to Manchester City when the Maine Road club paid a then British record transfer fee of £ 55,000 for him in March 1960. After a rather disappointing spell with famous Italian club Turin, he returned to Lancashire finally signing up for Busby's Manchester United in 1962. Denis Law opened the 1963-64 season on a bright note and was deservedly picked out to play for a Rest of the World side against England at Wembley. As a Manchester United player, the Scottish international won every major domestic honor, despite injury kept him out of the European Cup Final against Benfica at Wembley in 1968.

Denis Law returned to his old club Manchester City in 1973, and retired from football in 1974 after playing his last match in the World Cup in West Germany. During his 585 matches for his clubs, he managed to score a massive 300 goals. He also scored a total of 30 goals for Scotland in 55 matches. In 1964, Law was voted European Footballer of the Year as the only Scotsman to this day. Always in the best of spirits, Denis Law was no doubt one of the greatest entertainers ever watched on the British soccer scene. He was not only a Danny Kaye look alike, he also closely resembled the American comedian when performing some of his antics on and off the football pitch.
