World Cup Fever? It's The Benefits of Playing Soccer for Health
Still frenzied World Cup 2018, it is undeniable that soccer players have very good physical. The good physics is achieved from a practice that makes them able to run in a field no less than 90 meters x 120 meters, in one game for 2 x 45 minutes.
Football meets the aerobic amount recommended by the National Health Service (NHS) in one day, and playing regularly can reduce the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.
Here are the benefits of playing soccer:
1. Make the heart healthier
The average soccer player ran 8-11 km in one game. Because of the small rest periods, soccer is a good cardiovascular exercise - running, jogging, and kicking can increase the breathing rate and heart rate to drain more oxygen to the hard-working muscles. The effect of the heart becomes strong, lots of calories burned, and blood pressure down.
2. Stamina becomes stronger
Football is a sport that requires high endurance. If you have not played for a while, it may be panting when you first play. But over time the body will get used, such as the increased ability of the heart and lungs to drain oxygen to the muscles to improve athletic performance.
3. Build muscle strength
Players need muscle power to kick and pass ball, attack, defend, and others. Because of the many muscle units used in playing soccer, the player builds muscle strength throughout his body.
4. The ability of the brain increases
In a soccer game, the brain concentrates on several different things, such as chasing the ball, making quick decisions to whom the ball is in the oper, and others. Cognitive ability is honed in this sport so playing football not only improves coordination, but also concentration.
