Igrati pod pritiskom

 

Odlučujući je trenutak meča! Vaš sledeći potez može da napravi razliku između pobede ili poraza. Kojim god sportom da se bavite, bilo da je timski ili individualni, momenti koji sa sobom nose težinu i neizvesnost će se dešavati. Zapravo, trebalo bi da želite da se dešavaju što češće jer čini se da samo tako možete doći do visina koje dostižu „pravi“ šampioni.

O čemu tada razmišljate? Da li vam je u glavi slika kako ste na pobedničkom postolju i podižete pehar? Ili su vam možda misli usmerene ka tome šta će biti ukoliko izgubite? Da li vas hvata panika? Continue reading

How to use every practice, even the boring one?

bored-swimmer-600x450Have you ever considered how much your time you invest in practice?

How many training sessions you just waited for them to finish?

 

If you are a professional player of any sport, it usually means that you have practices ten times a week for two hours . Multiplied by ten months, or 42 weeks and we get a figure of 840 hours of training per year, or if you want to sound more fascinating Continue reading

Šta raditi na dosadnom treningu?

bored-swimmer-600x450

Da li ste razmišljali koliko svog vremena uložite u treninge?

A koliko treninga prodje, a vi samo čekate da se završe?

Ako ste profesionalni igrač to uglavnom znači da imate deset puta nedeljno po dva sata treninge. Ako to onda pomnožimo sa deset meseci Continue reading

Now what?

keepcalm job

When you are about ten years old, you start to train a sport and you dream of one day getting into the first team of your club . If you’re committed, hard working everyday and have at least some talent, after a while, you may find yourself in that first team.

Then you dream about playing for the national team or going to a better club. After a few years, when you get into the national team, you start dreaming about playing for a great foreign club.

Everything goes smoothly, you do your job, maybe you don’t enjoy every second in training, but you love to play the game, you hunger for victory.

With hard work and various sacrifices, you play a couple of seasons abroad or in a better club in your country, and when you turn around, you are already more than 30 years old. You’re already a veteran player and Continue reading

“Šta ću sad?”

 

career-changeOtprilke sa deset godina počneš da treniraš neki sport i sanjaš da ćeš jednom ući u prvi tim tvog kluba. Ako si predan, vredno treniraš i imaš barem malo talenta , posle odredjenog vremena, nadješ se u prvom timu.

Sanjaš o tome da zaigraš i za reprezentaciju, odeš u bolji klub. Posle par godina , kad udješ u nacionalni tim, sanjaš o tome da zaigraš za neki inostrani klub.

Sve ide kao podmazano, radiš svoj posao, možda baš ne uživaš u svakom treningu, ali voliš Continue reading

Povreda i šta sa njom ( prvi deo)

IMG_1102421201215628

Da li vam se desilo da u jednom trenutku dok igrate ili trenirate  osetite bol. Možda u kolenu, ramenu, zglobu, ledjima(ovi su najgori po meni) ili na nekom drugom mestu.

Povreda vas sprečava da trenirate. Kada vam doktor kaže da mora da prođe BAR 10 dana bez treninga, a vi znate da je baš taj vikend važna utakmica. Znate koliko ste naporno trenirali da tada zablistate i pokažete šta znate.

«Povrede su deo sporta» je rečenica koju tada čujete od vama bliskih ljudi i tada su vam te reči slaba uteha. Continue reading

Volleyball team in my primary school

Do you remember your very first training session? The thrill of expectation the first time you try a sport you like. The desire to learn something new and exciting.

In my life I trained judo, skating and dancing (briefly and unsuccessfully 🙂 ), volleyball and basketball. I still remember every detail from each first day of training. The first volleyball training, back in 1986, when my first coach Mocko Stevan brought me to a bunch of boys three years older than me, and with a deep voice gave me my first lesson in volleyball: Continue reading
