Weight lifting and strength training for football is a MUST before you ever decide to step foot on the gridiron. In order to be successful in today’s game of football you have got to have a smart strength and conditioning training program. Take a minute to read about what 2 exercises I have included here that will certainly boost your game day performance.
1. The Single Arm Overhead Kettlebell Snatch: By now you have got to know that the ancient kettlebell is one of the most hard hitting strength and conditioning tools known to man. The overhead snatch is an Olympic style lift that is tremendous for helping you to develop overwhelming core power, shoulder stability, explosiveness, and a level of unmatched conditioning. To execute this lift you must have some base knowledge of common kettlebell lifts. To perform the snatch you must understand how to transition from a single arm kettlebell swing to a high pull. This basically involves you swinging the kettlebell from between your legs and allowing it’s momentum to bring the bell to a position that is lateral to your head with your elbow in a “cocked back” position. This movement should mimic you “pulling back on a bow.” Once the kettlebell is at this high point lateral to your head then all you need to do is vertically punch your palm to the sky. Make sure to firmly lock out your elbow and secure your shoulder into the socket.
2. The Dual Bell Clean And Squat: For this strength training exercise you have to have the availability of a pair of kettlebells of equal weight. Place them between your feet. From the ground properly clean and rack both kettlebells to your chest. Next, perform a front squat maintaining form by not allowing the bells to pull your body forward. Try to go deep enough in the squat to allow your elbows to touch the insides of your knees. This is how you know your squat depth is sufficient. If you haven’t included kettlebell training into your football strength and conditioning program you are only holding back the progress of your game. Remember that anyone can train hard, but only the champions train smart!
