This lower body lift is a compliment to the running that you saw from the previous video. In the weight room we super setted power cleans with squats which means one set of cleans then one set of squats. I do 6 x 6 reps of each lift with a 3 minute rest in between. To me these are the most important lifts for a football player because they help make you a more explosive player.
The weights of all six sets are listed below.
- 1. 225 2. 245 3. 265 4. 275 5. 285 6. 295
- 1. 275 2. 315 3. 335 4. 365 5. 385 6. 405
A day in the weight room doing these exercises gives me the most "football related strength." The Redskins strength and conditioning staff does a great job of preparing the workouts for all of the players and with their help we are able to do what we do on the field.
