    Hey,

    So I've just finished A Levels and want to get back into football. I used to play at quite a high standard until I quit a few years ago. I played casually last summer and in the past few days and strangely enough I haven't lost my touch - I can still dribble past 3 players in quick succession etc, have a good shot on me and decent passing accuracy. One thing I lack, however, is my stamina, if I run around for a while, since my fitness is low, I'm usually aching for a day or two after.
    Shall I warm up etc before I play?

    I really it is really not that deep aha but I'm personally just trying to enjoy myself and get my fitness back up, so I can play to quite a high stanrd again.

    as long as you remember how you trained with and without the ball at your feet you should be fine, otherwise, do your research

    Cardio is your friend. Go to the gym, start running, go swimming, do some cycling, or good old fashioned interval training.

    These will all help you build your stamina, and the aches and pains will go once your body gets used to it.

    Yeah that's obvious, not warming up properly means you get injured
