When it comes to sports, you can either use mental agility or physical prowess. For me when I think about sports I think about using your brain. I believe this because when you participate in sports you have to be able to remember your steps and plans to play. It’s also important to have good physical abilities. This varies depending on which sport you are discussing.
Is football or soccer harder this is a very talked about topic and I believe that soccer is a much more endurance based sport most players have to run up to 8 miles per game while in football players have to run no longer than 15 seconds for a short play getting constant breaks throughout the game. When it comes to football and soccer one is definitely more physical than the other while in football the main point is to viciously collide into each other to prevent an opponent's play or to try to make a play but all football players are equipped with the gear to take the hits while soccer players have no gear but shin pads and some goalkeepers wear protective head bands but that is very uncommon. So if a soccer player is to collide with an opposing
Brains or Brawn by-Kodi Haskew Why exactly do we run? We all have a reason to run, whether it's because we want to or some other reason. How do you know you want to run? You think about what you want to do which requires a brain, which also requires knowledge. Therefore I believe thinking (brains) is definitely more important (in matters of reaching your success) than brawn.
How do you finish a competition? Some say you would only need to have the body and the muscle to finish because it is the most important. But in truth, mental strength is just as important if not more. You would use intelligence or mental strength to find out if the strategy you use is the right one like in the story, “What Could Be Better Than A Touchdown?” Also if you have the strength to believe and vision you can finish like in the piece,”Why We Run.”
I believe that this video is showing its audience that if you truly want to be a part of something, then you will put your all into it. You won’t complain or say that wish you could not participate in it today and wait until tomorrow. You would try and accomplish whatever goal you have set no matter the circumstances and how hard it will be. An example of this would be from “Forrest Gump” when Forrest had braces on his legs so he couldn’t run. It wasn’t until he had a reason to want to run that he did.
Rabindranath Tagore states that “You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.” This quote is comparing to life as in you can’t do anything exciting or achieve anything in life by not doing anything and not taking chances in life or try new things. I agree with Tagore ’s quote. Taking risks in life is necessary in extreme situations because if you don’t try it, your not going to be able to achieve something in life.
Even today, The question that does not have one clear answer is, “What is the value of life”. To some, one’s life might be measured in money, while to others, ones life might be measured in how much good they have brought into this world. In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, he contemplates dealing with the meaning of life and death, and the perception of man itself. In Chris Jones interview with John Ebert, we see Ebert’s positively about what life is all about, even when there is struggle. Amanda Ripley’s article conveys a message about the problems with life being valued by dollars and cents, when the question is, “Should this be done?”.
“How to Get the Most Out of Yourself" by Alan Loy McGinnis a psychologist is about finding the key to success. The idea is that success is nothing more than having self-confidence. Whenever we face failures or bad luck we end up putting ourselves down which makes it seem impossible for us to ever be successful. McGinnis advices that we should keep our chin high and improve on our failures instead of letting them bring us down. McGinnis states that we should focus on our abilities and not on our weak ones.
The physical aspect and believe that ‘the faster one is better’ is a common idea in most sports, therefore, football is not an exception, but it is specific enough not to be discussed in a traditional way of planning and developing the skill of speed. The breakdown of football specific tasks is clearly showing very low numbers of explicit straight sprinting over 30 meters – short distance sprints with change of direction take the central and most important role. Furthermore, there is evidence that straight sprinting training has little to no influence on sprinting that involves changes of directions, in more detail: the bigger the angle of directional change the smaller is the influence on straight sprinting . These facts should be reason
Fitness has long been regarded as directly correlated to health in a person. A certain degree of fitness is also required for the completion of several tasks, such as climbing and lifting. The degree of fitness needed depends on the task with many sports often needing a high level of fitness, whereas tasks such as lifting an arm needs relatively little fitness levels. Even within sports, there are different degrees of fitness needed, as well as different types of fitness (Martens, 2004). For example, running would require a great deal of aerobic and cardiovascular fitness.
