June 1- Football 'Playuhs' Keep the Pedal To The Medal!

Almost exactly 3 months to training camp for High School and College fall sports athletes. Little over 2 months for the pros.

This should be the month where you hit those highs with the max lifts (Squats, Cleans, Snatches) and yes even though it is the most overrated exercise in sport, Bench Press is still a must if you are to impress in camp.

Do your coaches a favor and ditch the so called "Energy" drinks and get used to hydrating yourself with water. It is awfully hard to drink too much water but as a general rule you High School age players should be regularly drinking 2 gallons a day. Yes I said 2 gallons. You carry more muscle that 98% of the population of your school and that muscle is sucking up water all day long. Add the intense off season training and the upcoming training camp in 100 degree heat; You can stay on the field and off the IV.

Those energy drinks contain caffeine, ephedra and other hydration stealing 'crapola el grande' that will have you writhing on the ground grabbing at your calves as opposed to jacking up the freshman walk on during the 'man up' drills.

If you are not in a strength and conditioning program right now, don't fret. Get help right now. If a personal strength coach that could cost as much at $1000 per month not an option there are plenty of online resources. Here comes the hint:

Feel free also to post any questions here and we will certainly do our best to point you in the right direction. Train now in August you will be glad you did. Now here is today's sample football training exercise fro the US Sports Online Strength and Conditioning System:
