Where are you going?

If you’re going somewhere with mild weather then there is no need to pack many clothes, you only need to bring a small and light package and you’re ready to roll. But going camping or adventuring in wild areas will require a lot of preparation. Food, clothes, medicine, and a GPS is what you going to need.

How many people is going with you?

If it is a family trip or vacation with friends, the first thing you gonna need is a large tent. You should only choose the best 8 person tent because they can store many people inside while still giving them spaces to move around. It’ll be best if you could stay in a cabin, in case the weather got bad unexpectedly.

And if you’re going alone or with a few friends on an adventure, you guys should use some small but compact personal tents.

Prepare insurance and health information

If this is a picnic with family members then this wouldn’t be necessary. But when you’re taking a scout troop or travel with friends in wild areas, you might need to consider this. If something bad happens to like someone got lost or injury, you should always have backup plans. And it is always important to know each member health status, you could make a quicker decision with them.

Base on the place that you guys are about to come, there should be a few changes to the kit. But there are some that can’t be replaced. First, some bandage and medical cotton, some antiseptic and antibiotics, and some anti-insect if necessary. That’s all you gonna need for a medic kit.

Prepare some food

For camping and picnic with family and friends in safe places, you only need to bring the food that you want to eat, the amount is up to you. Don’t bring food that could be easy rotten.

But when you’re on an adventure, it is necessary to bring some food in case you need energy. Some energy bar is a great choice for this. If you want a fancier meal, you could also bring some canned food or MRE (meal ready to eat).

Things you need

Create a list of things you need or want to bring along with you. It could be something that has special meaning to you or something you might find it useful. And remember don’t over pack your stuff. You’re going on a vacation, not moving away from home.

Riding a bike is a great way to get back into shape or to increase your level of fitness. However, not everyone can afford to hit the road on a bicycle because of the lack of time, pollution, or other reasons. However, they can still have that similar feeling using a stationary bike. With hundreds of brands and models currently on the market, buying a suitable one for you might not be a walk in a park. Hence, in this article we will give you some information to keep in mind when buying this exercise equipment.

1/ Fitness goal

For hardcore cyclist indoor cycling or a spinning bike is the way to go because it is very similar to riding an actual bike. They are also great in enhancing your strength, stamina and overall health. This is not universally applicable, i.e. not for everyone. Unless cycling is your passion, don’t go with this.

For people trying to shed some pounds, you will need something that provides you with all the necessary information to help you lose weight effectively. That is because in order to lose weight, you need to shed fat and that can only happen at a specific range of heart rate. Therefore, you will need a heart rate monitor to keep track of your performance.

2/ Comfort level

For people with special medical condition like backache, riding an upright bike is like adding fuel to fire. What they need is a recumbent bike which offers reclined seat and back support, giving the user maximum comfort.

If you prefer sitting in an upright position to train your back as well as your strength, getting an upright bike is a very good idea. The seats are much wider and padded for extra comfort.

3/ Motivation

If you are easily demotivated, you would need something that can give you a wide variety of challenge.  There are some that have a wide range of preset exercises for many levels which allows you to push yourself to the limit. Then there are some that function like a video games player which allows you to lose weight while enjoying your game. Find out what keeps you interested and ask the store if they have it built in or not.

4/ Price

The more money you pay, the better the bike usually is and the more toys it will have. However, if you are already motivated to exercise, buying the best recumbent bike on the market is not needed. Find out what you need and how much money you have so that you don’t overspend on this machine.

5/ Size

If your available space is not so big, you can choose to buy folding bike. As the name says, you can fold and put it away when you don’t use it, which saves you some extra space.

If you have lots of free space, anything sturdy and reliable will suit you. This can range from a recumbent bike, a non-folding, an upright bike with fixed frame to even a spinning bike.

That was it from me. We hope that you will be successful in buying this device with the most reasonable price. Good luck

Tips for playing football better

Have you recently started to take up football or soccer, called by the American, as a hobby? Do you feel like you need a lot more training in order to play it better? If so, you have come to the right article. In this article, I will share with you some tips and tricks to help you play the game better. Plus, there is a special surprise for you at the end of this article. Have a look.

Running

It is an integral part of this sport. At a professional level, players will run around 10 to 13 kilometers per match, which lasts around 90 minutes or more. At your level, you only need to run about 5 to 7 kilometers for 30 minutes and you are good to go. If you are below that number, practice running every day to increase the speed and stamina. You might want to practice on the form of running as well so that you can run more using less energy.

As for speed, practice interval training, which is a quick burst of pace followed by a short walk then a burst of pace again. Keep repeat the process until you feel tired then take a rest and continue. If you have the means, tie a parachute to your body and practice learning like that. If you can run fast against that kind of drag, then you will be uncatchable without it.

Stamina

Stamina, as in the dictionary, is a physical or mental strength that allows you to continue doing something for a long time. You will be needing this if you intend to play a full match. There are loads of exercise that can help you with it, cardiovascular for example. You only need to do this for only 3 to 4 times a week in order to see the result and feel the difference.

Passing

An indispensable part of football, you don’t need to shoot but you will definitely need to know how to pass. Try target practice by painting circles on the wall or set up some actual targets and start passing. You might want to practice 1-2 passing as well by passing to the wall and as the ball bounces off, catch it.

Shooting

If you are playing in attacking position, this is a must-have skill. There are lots of ways to shoot the ball, ranging from using the inside of the foot to using the front and even the outside of it. Practice for accuracy first then for power. It’s better to practice again and again to perfect one type of shooting than to practice everything at once. People fear that type of players more than anything else.

Skills

You will usually have little chance to show this off in real match but it does help you have better control of the ball, which is just what you need during the game. Same as above, don’t practice a wide range of skills, practice a few skills until you can perform them without even thinking about them so that you can pull them off in fast-pace situation on the pitch
