    Default Football

    Alright, I have a friend that wanted me to post a thread on here because he is wanting to get into shape for football. I showed him some articles on diets and that stuff, and I've been helping him get his diet into shape and it's working very well so far. But he is looking for a work out routine that will help him gain some size and the strength he needs for football. He's wanting to gain around 20 lbs before the 2010 football season. I looked through the sport-specific football routines and I realized they their main goal was strength. Is there some other thing he could do to gain some muscle mass and the strength/explosiveness/power that he needs on the field?

    You can still gain some mass thru a strength training routine WITH a calorie surplus.

    Alright, so I'll just have him start doing the Off-season football routine and make sure his diet is still doing great. Should I have him do more than just decline sit-ups for the abdominal?

    Are decline sit ups all you need to do for football, or should you do something more?

    The focus is on strength because most athletes need more strength.. With that said, hypertrophy (increasing muscle size) type of training can be done throughout a strength phase.
