In football strength and speed are the essentials. Here are some excersises and training you can do to help. 1. Squats
In strength training, the squat is a compound, full body exercise that trains primarily the muscles of the thighs, hips and buttocks, quads throughout the lower body. Squats are considered a vital exercise for increasing the strength and size of the legs and buttocks, as well as developing core strength. Isometric ally, the lower back, the upper back, the abdominals, the trunk muscles, the costal muscles, and the shoulders and arms are all essential to the exercise and thus are trained when squatting with the proper form. Squats are one of the three lifts in the strength sport of power lifting. always remember the deeper you go the more delicious it is for your muscles.
Gluteus Maximus (glutes), Quadriceps (quads), Hamstrings
Secondary Muscles- Erector Spinae, Transverse Abdominus, Gluteus medius/minimus Adductors, Soleus, Gastrocnemius
2. Snatch The essence of the event is to lift a barbell from the platform to locked arms overhead in a smooth continuous movement. The barbell is pulled as high as the lifter can manage (typically to mid chest height) at which point the barbell is flipped overhead. With relatively light weights locking of the arms may not require rebending the knees. As performed in contests, the weight is always heavy enough to demand that the lifter receive the bar in a squatting position, while at the same time flipping the weight so it moves in an arc directly overhead to locked arms (the quick drop). When the lifter is secure in this position, he or she rises (overhead squat), completing the lift. Alternatively, the lifter may use a split style to get under the bar. The lift requires not only great strength, but mastery of technical skills, a high degree of shoulder/back/leg flexibility, excellent balance, and speed. However, power and strength do play an important role in...
