Design a modern strength and conditioning program that exercises your body as well as your mind! This is the same training methodology elite trainer Tim McClellan has used to produce over 200 NCAA All-Americans, elite professional athletes and Olympic Gold Medalists.
McClellan and Mountain Pointe High School strength coach Jeff Decker have put together as comprehensive look at how to properly train to play football at a high level and withstand the rigors of the season.
This program is loaded with exercises and drills you can perform to improve your physical fitness and decrease your chances of injury. The training is delivered in 10 steps:
• Neurological Warm-Up
• Mobility Stretching
• Injury Prevention
• Low Level Plyometrics
• .Advanced Plyometrics
• Power Development
• Lower Body Strength Development
• Upper Body Strength Development
• Speed and Agility
All training requires a methodology and McClellan delivers his proven methods starting with the fundamentals of properly warming up muscles and activating the body's central nervous system. Both are necessary but often over-looked components in off-season programs.
Following the neurological warm-up and active stretching, McClellan presents his shoulder, lower body and neck exercises for injury prevention. Nine exercises for the shoulder are demonstrated to help protect the rotator cuff and the 17 muscles comprising the shoulder area. Lower body and neck injury prevention exercises are also shown.
Low level to high level plyometrics lead into the power development phase. Here the power squat jump, side knee jumps, front step ups and other dynamic lifts show how to make a powerful football player. Decker introduces several triple extension exercises including the hang clean, power shrug, push press, push jerk and other exciting lifts.
The coaches then take you into lower body, upper body and core strength training with many of the traditional strength building lifts such as the squat, dead lift, bench press and 17 other muscle pounding exercises.
The workout concludes with the training you need most because of how it mimics the demands of the game: speed and agility. This section includes scramble ups, resistance running, the three cone "L" drill and much more to make you more dynamic and explosive.
McClellan completes the video with the procedures and importance of a proper cool down.
When you are engaged in a fierce one-on-one conflict, superior confidence in your body will assure victory. With nearly one hour of footage presented in an easy-to-understand format, this is one of the most complete and comprehensive training tools available to ensure success on the gridiron.
