Strength And Power Training Makes A Difference During The Football Game
Posted Oct 01 2008 4:16pm
I was watching a middle school client play his football game last night. This kid never came off the field---he played offense (running back), defense (linebacker) and special teams! When I trained him this summer, I told him that he would be stronger and faster for the entire game than his opponents. I saw it in person last night! After talking to him, he feels the difference too. I still train him once a week so he will maintain his strength and power during the season.
Because of the positions he plays, he has to run fast most of the game. Putting on the extra 10 pounds of muscle and decreasing his 40 yard dash time by 2 tenths of a second this summer has elevated his performance to a higher level. Everyone sees it. Sports fitness training done right always works for the athlete!
