Help your Posture with Soccer

A series of recent scientific research studies show that men and women who regularly play recreational soccer improve their posture and balance, as well as their muscle strength. Playing soccer also increases bone mass and bone density, reducing bone-weakening associated with age, and effectively reducing the risk of falls and bone fractures.

While different studies focus on different factors, collectively they show that just an hour of soccer 2-3 times per week results in both increased muscle and leg bone mass, as well as postural balance. Muscle function and muscle strength are also considerably better—specifically calf muscle mass and bone density in your legs.
