Getting Back On Your Feet

Whether you've just finished giving your all during D.A. Playoffs in an attempt to get your team into Finals Week, or you're a parent just starting to work out again to be a little healthier, ussoccer.com has got a great feature for you today.

Loyal readers of the MNT blog might recognize the word "regeneration". It's often used in posts the day after a national team game to describe what some of the players will be doing instead of training for the day. While everyone would agree that rest is needed the day after a game, some people might not know that there's more you can do besides laying down all day to get your body back up to 100 percent.

Our video crew talked to U.S. Soccer technical advisors to learn more about the best exercises athletes can do to rehabilitate their tired muscles in the hours after a match. Take a look and figure out what you can do on your own, and let us know how you feel the next time you leave it all on the pitch!
