Take your training to the next level & become a star player this season. Here are my top 5 gym exercises essential for all skill players training programs:
High Box Lateral Step Up:
Split leg movements are a vital part of training for skill players as the majority of actions on the field are done with a split leg action. This exercise helps develop glute & hamstring explosive ability as well as helping improve leg turnover with the addition on the knee drive.
Incline Db Bench Press:
Upper body strength & size is important for protecting you from injuries & giving you the ability to produce a devastating hit whether you are blocking or tackling.
Trap Bar Deadlift:
With many of my football clients I often prefer using the Trap Bar Deadlifts due to lower injury risk & less mobility requirements. Deadlifts help develop powerful hip extension vital for accelerating out of your stance & driving into a tackle.
Horizontal Cable Woodchop:
Core strength is the foundation of all other movements. You cannot produce a large amount of force through your arms & legs without a solid base in place to work from. Ditch the crunches & try some more relevant exercises to your sport such as a Horizontal Woodchop
Bulgarian Split Squat:
Not only good for lower body strength & support but also opening up & improving hip mobility.
