If you are wanting to get into football shape then you have got to have a smart strength and conditioning program in place. You know as well as I do that a player even with slightly less talent can be competitive if he is better conditioned for the demands of this game. This is why I have included 2 opponent destroying lifts for you to engage in to get the edge in your game. Read on if I have your attention.
Lifts For Football!
1. Kettlebell Snatch: Every football player knows that you have got to have strong powerful shoulders, powerful hips, and be capable of not only dishing out the hits, but taking them while playing on the gridiron. This is why I am glad to introduce to you the overhead kettlebell snatch. This is the Czar of all kettlebell lifts and will propel your football game into a whole new arena of play.
In order to execute this particular lift you have got to have the availability of a single kettlebell of moderate to heavy resistance depending on your comfort level and personal ability. To begin you are going to pull the bell either off of the ground or from between your legs and elevate it to a “high pull” position just next to your head. This “high pull” position with your upper body should mimic the act of “pulling back on a bow” like you would with a bow and arrow. This elevated position of the bell allows you to then complete the lift by ufabet เว็บตรงไม่ผ่านเอเย่นต์ vertically punching your palm towards the sky in order to smoothly roll the kettlebell over the back of your forearm. There should be no banging here. The elevation of the bell is caused by you having to flex and then forcefully extend at both your hips and knees to create the momentum.
2. The Hang Clean: The hang clean is an olympic style lift that is performed with an olympic barbell and bumper plates. The origin of the term “clean” comes from you having to lift the weight from the floor to your chest in one clean movement. This is done obviously by having to generate a lot of force and power from your hips, shoulders, and back in order to pull it off.
Begin the hang clean by holding the bar at your hip level with your shoulders retracted and feet at shoulder width apart. From here you are going to maintain a locked position of your arms in order to flex and then explosively extend at your hips and knees. The bar should come up at a vertical trajectory close to your body as you fire your hips.
As the bar gains elevation you will want to shrug your shoulder girdle and then pull the bar to elevate at your eye level. Now the next part is important. As the bar is elevating you are then flexing at your hips again in order to lower yourself underneath the quickly elevated bar to properly catch it at the rack. The key to doing this lift properly is making sure you have the proper bumper plates and olympic set to allow for dropping if the lift is compromised. This is how injury is avoided.
