Football is an extremely physical game. The strongest, most powerful and most explosive players are the ones that become stars on the gridiron. This is why a structured strength training program is extremely important for football players of all ages.

Reactive Training and Power Development:

  1. 1. Reactive training exercises increase the football player’s explosiveness and ability to change directions quickly and efficiently.
  2. 2. These reactive training exercises, coupled with the inclusion of power exercises such as one arm dumbbell snatches and hang cleans, develop the athlete’s foot speed, explosiveness and ability to deliver hard hits.
  3. 3. The players that are able to generate force more quickly are those that are able to make (or break) big tackles.

Strength and Proprioception:

  1. 1. Our focus is to increase the athlete’s full body strength so that they are able to withstand the punishment they take every game.
  2. 2. An emphasis on lower body and core strength builds stability and a foundation for power.
  3. 3. We aim to enhance the athlete’s proprioception because football is a game of superior athleticism.
  4. 4. Football rewards athletes that are adept at controlling their bodies through different planes of motion, therefore our players perform various unilateral exercises to enhance their body control.
  5. 5. Football is a physically demanding game, which is why strength and power are the keys to success.

NOTE: Quarterbacks should follow the baseball programs for the corresponding training age. Quarterbacks are overhead athletes, much like baseball players, and should follow the training program that is prescribed for such athletes to protect the health of the arm.
