Since your addy says your up in Canada, i have to assume you’re playing volleyball indoors on a wood or other hard surface. You can take fish oil, glucosamine etc. However, one thing to keep in mind is that what you are doing goes completely against how your body was designed as a result of natural selection. Think for a minute, as little as 3 generations back the majority of our species spent most, if not all of their lives walking, running, jumping, lifting, working etc on dirt, grass, sand, and in your case SNOW. All very forgiving surfaces with cushion. And so thats what your current body was designed for. It wasn’t selected for its ability to survive on concrete, asphalt or indoor volleyball courts, they didn’t exist.
Shoe companies want you to think they can fix all that. If thats the case, why have nearly all NFL and college football teams switched back to natural grass surfaces when 5 years ago everyone was using artifical surfaces??? Because despite the $200 techno shoes, the fish oil, and the glucosamine, the players were dropping like flys. And they weren’t even old yet.
Just something to thinkz about.
I completely agree with you and had though about that already, shoes, supplements etc are just ways to minimize the damage the only thing that I should do to stop it is to stop the activity altogether.
well as any other jock knows whenever I say: That’s it! I decide to play one more game and hell; I play really well and keep going…
I am almost 40 playing at a decent level but it is too much time consumed, pain and headaches, this is my last season I am enjoying it a lot, being able to smoke guys that are 1/2 my age is always fun and great to my ego to be able to do stuff that I didn’t know I still could.
Anyways thanks guys for your input I am taking the supplements, incorporating the exercises etc etc.
Thank you so much!
