Work out your way

Not everyone can get out there and run 10 miles by themselves, but not everyone works well on a soccer team, either. So find out what type...

Mod!
I just joined a basketball team with my two good friends. I'm excited, but I'm also worried about how I'm gonna do this. I'm not tall, actually I'm pretty short: 5"2 and I'm 12. My two friends are towering over me so I always feel short. Should I drop out? Is basketball about height? What positions can a short person play?

Hey WashingtonGirlie13, basketball is most definitely not about height. You can play any position as long as you're dedicated. There are soo many short players in the WNBA and NBA. Just practice and you're good to go. Hope this helps! Xoxo

A couple weeks ago, I played a soccer game, but the other team sort of had an unfair advantage. Their youngest player was older than my team's oldest. We won, but something happened in the middle of the game. I'm an outside mid, but one of the other team's forwards broke through our defense. I ran back to help, and he was just about to shoot the ball into the goal so I slidetackled the ball at his feet. He tripped, and I landed on my back weird, like right in the middle of my spine. At first I thought I was really hurt, because I couldn't breathe or feel my legs. The ref asked if I was okay, and I said I was fine continued the game, figuring I had just knocked the breath out of myself. But ever since then, my back hurts, and I'm having trouble breathing when I run, which is an issue because I play cross country and soccer. Why is this happening? Will it stop? Do I need to go to a doctor? Or am I just really sore? The game was about a week and a half ago.

 

Hey girl! That sounds like it could be serious, and if I were you I would go to the doctor asap. Always take back injuries seriously, they're a big deal! feel better, chica.

This saturday is a halloween party and I'm going to be a genie. How can I beat bloat and have my stomach appear thinner by then?

 

Hey girlie, make sure that you're drinking lots of water and avoid salty foods this week. The water will help cleanse your body and salt makes you bloat.

I am pretty much new to the world of workouts that aren't team sports and i was wondering what exercise you are supposed to do each week. Are you supposed to do 3 days of an hour+ of cardio and 2 days of flexibility? or...?
Thanks in Advance!

 

Hey girlie, do some research on workouts and what you want to accomplish with them, and determine your schedule from there. Cardio is great to improve your endurance, and it's good for your heart. Weight workouts will help you to build muscle, and muscle burns more calories than fat, which could result in some fat loss. And flexibility workouts will help stretch out your muscles to make cardio workouts easier for you.

i want to run this 5k but my mom says i have weak ankles how do i get them strong so my mom will let me run?

Hey girl,

I would ask your gym teacher to show you some exercises that will help you build ankle strength. You can also buy sneakers that are designed for ankle support. Good luck!

Hi, im a freshman and i had to go for my annual physical yesterday and of course the did my height and weight, and when they did the results and everything and they said i was 5 foot flat and 129lbs and that that i was classified as overweight, but they said i also had a "large build." i was already uncomfortable with my body, and now i'm even more uncomfortable, i keep finding myself trying to avoid food. what should i do? thank you for everything.


Hey girl,

If they told you that you were overweight, they should have given you a few pointers about staying healthy! The best way to lose weight is not to avoid food, so you should definitely make sure you are getting enough food and nutrients from fruits and veggies. It's normal to be uncomfortable about your body, especially if you are told by a doctor that you're overweight, but you're taking the initiative to be healthier, which is great, and you should be happy with yourself for that! Talk to your parents about how you can eat more healthily, and develop an exercise plan that gets you active regularly.

Gotta love cross country! It is such a great sport!

Gotta love cross country!! I never thought I'd try it before this year, but it's such a great sport because everyone practices together no matter what level you are. XC teams are supportive and caring, and the coaches are amazing. You run your own race and you can go as hard as you want, with so many chances for personal improvement. I love track and field more, but cross country is a great sport. I also love ballet and Jazzercise! Staying in shape is very important.
