We where do I start, I get up, I play a bit of football not thinking anything will come of it and bang, there goes my false teeth. No not really but what does tend to happen whilst playing sports is lots of aches and pains not to mention the other physical effects of love handles wobbling around in my face whilst trying to run.
When I was in my twenties I was very athletic, very much a big football fan and used to love playing football EVERY DAY! Until I met my wife, I don't blame her for me putting weight on and gaining more physical effects but I blame my job. I blame my job mainly because I used to have five or six hours a day to play sports, whereas now I really struggle to find time to even walk to the shops.
I give praise to those people who work and then gym in their lunch or after work as they really do have a lot of energy and strength. Where as if I did that I would be plastered to the couch after one day as I would be aching and normally in a morning aching that much that I walk like a stiff cardboard cut-out.
Anyway a good example of physical effects in sports would be Rafael Nadal. All that pressure put on his knees moving around the court like a madman could have potentially wrecked his career.
~ Where do I ache the most? ~
After playing a couple of hour's football after not playing for a year or so I tend to get aches in my thighs, knees, arms and neck. Sometimes my wife has to push me out of bed (which she enjoys greatly!) and help me stand up straight. This is what sports do to you at the age of 27 and no regular exercise. So the point is exercise as much as you can or you begin to cease up.
If your like me and you don't warm down and do exercises which get rid of the acid which builds up during sporting activities, then you will get a lot of physical effects, so my advice is warm down or you will regret it in the morning!
~ Which sports have the worst physical effects? ~
In my opinion it could only be boxing due to the fact that if you get knocked out by some kind of beasty boxer, then this is my top sport for worrying physical effects and sometimes it can be life threatening conditions.
Other sports which cause a lot of physical effects is rugby. You get trampled on, growled at (physiological effects, nightmares!), and lots of broken parts so the physical effects are quite big and traumatic for the person involved.
If I got passed the rugby ball I would scream like a little girl and run sideways and jump over the advertising boards, especially if I am chased by a big French grizzly.
~ To conclude...~
Sports have a lot of physical effects on any sportsman and that's mainly down to the fact that every sport is competitive so it drives you to do things you wouldn't do in a normal sane frame of mind.
It is in built in us to push ourselves and bodies to the limit in order to win, survive and when beaten the physical effects of sport can make it feel even worse. You just got to know when to keep going and when to stop, if you judge it wrong you could end up in a serious situation, so my advice is go and enjoy sports, but also take the necessary steps to protect your body from harm and not to over do it.
Summary: Physical damage and pins caused playing sports.
