Learning how to manage your time is an important part of being a good pro. You have training, school, a social life, time with your family, and so on. When it comes to achieving your objectives, the excuse "I'm simply too busy" isn't good enough.

If you're a young player, your school and academics should come first, followed by soccer.

I'm not suggesting that you stay at home after school and study all day and night; it is unrealistic. You require a break from education, just as you require a vacation from soccer. This is why today we're going to discover how to organize your workout training routine today.

Points to Remember:

  1. Create a Google Calendar account. It's free if you have a Gmail account. To create one, go to http://www.Gmail.com. It's fine if you don't want to use a Google Calendar; you can use any calendar you like. Google Calendars is something I suggest to all of my athletes and players.
  2. Add all of your school, social, and family activities to your calendar. For example, a math exam on Friday, a hot date on Saturday, and so on. Then enter all of your soccer team's events. On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-8:30 p.m., for example. Include your weekend games as well.
  3. Create a schedule for your own training and assignments. The training you perform on your own or with a friend will be the most important factor in determining how much time you have for homework. You could have a regular training day where you go home from school at 3 p.m., have a snack, and unwind a little. Get ready wearing Nike Mercurial Vapor XI Neymar for a training session from 4:30 to 6 p.m., then shower, eat, spend time with family, and finish schoolwork from 7-9 p.m. Make a note of these training hours and homework time in your weekly schedule. This is referred to as time management. You won't have to stress about when you'll work out or do your assignments anymore since you'll have everything set out at the beginning of each week.
  4. Google Calendar includes a useful repeat feature! Make use of it! So, if you're going to work out five days in a row from 4-5 pm, don't schedule it five times in your calendar. Put it in once, then pick the repeat option to have it repeat 5 times in a row. Try it out; it's a fantastic feature!

Things to Note:

If you know you'll have a big math test on Friday and it's on your calendar, take a shorter work out on Thursday and a longer study session on Friday. You should make plans depending on your schoolwork.

Schedule time off so you can relax both physically and mentally. Professional athletes rarely work out seven days in a row! Every week, they take at least one day off. You should do the same!
