  • Need more advise on sons workout

    Good Friday Morning ya'll.

    I had written a while back about my son's workout. That part is going well. Now we have another issue.

    His endurance is lacking. He plays soccer and it seems about mid game he runs out of steam. While the other kids or some of them are running circles around him. I thought maybe it is something medically, but know he is fine there. It can't be size be3cause for the most part he is pretty average. My husband has him now doing wind sprints daily till he drops and then they run together every night.

    Do ya'll have any ideas? This is really bothering him.

    Any ideas?

    IMO, the only way to improve endurance is to do endurance work.. cardio. Your husbands doing fine, but the wind sprints(with a parachute??), i think would be more associated with accelaration and speed rather than endurance.. so if he's daily night runs are suffering, cut the wind sprints by a lil..

    Also, a short term solution are sports drinks.. replacing electrolytes and providing high gi carbs every 30-45 mins would help to a certain extent during the course of his game.. hope it helped.
    Consistency is the key

      Could also be that the soccer and weight training is just too much work.

      Make sure he has adequate nutrition and rest.

        I have wondered that myself, but even with all of that he is asking for more such as getting back in martial arts. I am keeping it at a minimum right now.

        He goes to bed each night at 830. Even on weekend nights because he has soccer on the weekends. Some Saturdays he will stay up till 11, but for the most part he is ready to go to bed.

        As for nutrition...he eats like a horse, but a healthy horse. He loves fruit and veggies. He will eat whole tomatoes for a snack. When it comes to junk food he will mostly eat apples with peanut butter. He gets lots of calcium through milk and yogurt.

        I think maybe he needs a better multivitamin other than just those that you buy at wal mart...any suggestion there?

          Leslie, there's various threads in the prevention forum that have recommendations on multi's for kids...check in the cancer forum the most recent thread directed at SuperSport. He recommends a brand of multi's specifically for a kid with a link to where to get them.

          Cutting out the smoking in the house is a huge thing. I'm glad you're sticking with it and hope, if nothing else, you're kids health can help you with those really tough times. Second hand smoke effects your kids health and your son's endurance difficulties can also be tied to his lung's health which is dampened by the grown up's cigarettes.

          As far as the endurance training...he'll fall behind a bit in the beginning as his body adjusts to the work outs with dad, but your husband's on the right track. His body will adapt. The first little while after increasing his work load he'll be dragging, but it does go away, I promise. Keep the good food going in, upgrade his multi, keep working hard and ya'll hold to your promise of cutting out the cigarettes. It'll be great for everyone in the end.

          Good luck!
