Hey /fit what sport do you play? Are you trying to go pro? What position?
>Trying for college team
Reflexes are on point but im a manlet unfortunately which makes goalkeeping a lot more difficult.
I go two times a week if i can. I like the action and the violence. Don't/can't go pro, and never will. Also i think it has a carry over in how you can handle yourself in everyday situations. Like staying more relaxed, calm, reading others and yourself better etc.
was a junior professional sprinter and forward in a football team (due to my acceleration). Had the best 200 m time in Sweden for my age at 15.
Then my hamstring and thigh broke at the same time and I couldn't run at max speed anymore and I still can't 10 years later, so I became a raging alcoholic instead.
Things are weird.
the problem with being short is that you literally only have a career until you're like 30, then you start to lose explosiveness and just suck
also 6'4, used to be a shit football goalkeeper and an excellent futsal one, now play volleyball in a shit league as there literally is no futsal club near me
natural talent shot stopping can get you only as far as a meme league
but especially at lower level the game is a lot more physical and you'll be caught short more often than not
I loved football since birth and I was pretty good at it, but my dad was like "its for losers, quit wasting ur time you little shit"
>tfw I could've been playing in the premier league right now
Basketball when I was young, got offers for college but turned them down because I didn't want to move to north Carolina or Texas. I now cyclocross and mountain bike on an amateur level. I still enter 3 on 3 tournaments from time to time. But never win anymore because my team mates are 5'7'' manlets. So I end up playing rougher to compensate and end up getting D/Q'd for fouls. I think its funny when I go up for a rebound and pull the ball down while my elbow "accidentally" slams into an opponents face. A little blood on the floor makes basketball more interesting. Pissed off opponents make mistakes....Till I run into a retired pro and he schools me while slipping in invisible ball taps and gut shots. Some of those guys know how to knock the wind out of ya and get away with it. While scoring.
