Youth Football Players – Offseason Training

There are more opinions about whether a child should do any type of weight training until they have reached puberty. It seems that there are numerous studies that show lifting weights will stunt a child’s growth, but now ufabet ทีเด็ดบอลสเต็ป  it seems that there are just as many studies that show no effect. I don’t really know where I fall in this debate, but I do know that if a child can play a sport he should be able to have some sort of workout during the offseason. Why would you have your child do push-ups, sit-ups, etc. during the season if they can’t be done year round. Here is a simple body weight workout that will build strength in your young athlete.

1. Pull-ups – 1st set – Grip the bar with a reverse grip (palms toward you) and hang from the bar. Pull your body weight up so that your chin is above the bar and repeat as many times as possible. 2nd set – Grip the bar with an overhand grip (palms away from you) and hang from the bar. Pull your body weight up so that your chin is above the bar and repeat as many times as possible. 3rd set – Grip the bar with a wide overhand grip (palms away from you) and hang from the bar. Pull your body weight up so that your chin is above the bar and repeat as many times as possible.

2. Push-ups – 1st set – Lie face down on the floor and place your palms on the floor a little wider than shoulder width at your chest and simple push yourself off the floor. Keep your back straight. When you go back down keep your chest approximately 1″ off the floor. Repeat for as many reps as possible. For the second set, spread your hand approximately 6″ wider. For the 3rd set, form a diamond with your thumbs and forefingers.

3. Squats – 3 sets, 10 repetitions – hold a broom stick, mop handle or painting extension handle above your head with your feet shoulder width apart. Keeping your back straight and chin up, squat down as far as you can, then stand back up. Repeat.

4. Sit-ups – This is a tough exercise for most kids, but they will quickly strengthen there stomach muscles. Have your child lie on the floor with their hands behind their head and their knees bent, you hold there ankles to prevent rocking. Have your child lift there upper body off the floor and touch their right knee with their left elbow then lie back. Coming back up, touch their left knee with there right elbow. Repeat for as many reps possible.
