    I heard if you rub vaseline on your chest before a match or training it will help you breathe better. Is this true?

    I think it's vicks vapor rub that you rub on your chest that helps you breathe better. It is the method preferred by Patrick Viera.

    No charge.

    Hey..I'm Mexican and I'm sure a couple other Mexican families do it also, but when we have a stuffy nose or are sick with a cold or something we rub it on our nose and chest/back..it really works

    Known in Mexico, known the world over -- at last, something made in the USA that people want to buy, other than an airliner or a .44 Magnum.

    My family used Vicks when I was a kid. It does my heart good to see something hang in there for a hundred years or more. Same with Vaseline.

    I hold Budweiser and Coca-Cola in lesser esteem.

    If you watch any EPL game nowadays you'll see a playe with a sticky spot their uniform in the upper chest area. The first player I really noticed doing it was Viera, but now a while lot of em do it.

    I think you are about 180 degrees off-course for the best application of vaseline -- aside from easing nicks and burns and such where-ever they may be.

    I saw a lot of sticky spots around the logos when I watched Arsenal vs Manchester United. Maybe I'll try it and see how it works.

    I use vaseline on my nipples to prevent chafing or any other irritation from sweating so much, and having my shirt rub against them- typically only do this when it's warm/hot out. and I get greasey spots on my shirt from doing so.

    I've never thought of using vicks to help with breathing during play. Sounds interesting, I may try it one time. I know for being sick, it's AMAZING though.
