Unorthodox Ways to Relax After a Workout
The usual ways of relaxing after a tough game or workout have perhaps grown boring or you don’t find them as effective as before. Besides active recovery, balancing your diet, hydrating or supplementation, there are some relaxation methods that are still under the radar – efficient, but not mainstream.

Is sacking Ranieri a lack of touch from Leicester City?
February 23rd, 2017, Leicester City has announced to part ways with head coach Claudio Ranieri. Ranieri led Leicester City to their first-ever Premier League against all odds and also led the team to their first-ever Champions League campaign in which the team is still alive as the club will play the second leg of the Round of 16 against Sevilla FC. The club sits at the 17th place in the Premier League table and it seems players such as Vardy and Mahrez who were phenomenal last year just do not have it this season.

PSG destroys FC Barcelona

It seems that FC Barcelona underestimated their rivals tonight... Indeed 2 goals in each half for Paris sends FC Barcelona to their deepest doubts and to an enormous ...
