Football Strength Training for Mass

What are some of the best football strength training exercises for mass?   As you have heard many strength coaches say, if you want put the BIGGER in Bigger, Stronger, Faster…then you have to train like the BIG Boys.  And the BIG boys in this case, are bodybuilders.  Their entire sport revolves around putting on the most muscle possible.  Now the problem with JUST doing bodybuilding is that you do not build absolute strength, which is necessary for football.  For football you have to be explosive, while maintaining flexibility.

So is being bigger really that important?  Won't it make me slower?  Well it would if all you were doing was bodybuilding.  There is a reason that BIGGER is important.  Carrying more muscle increases your potential for strength.  Which means you have a better chance of being strong, if you train right..and with this program you will.  Also, as I mentioned before, having more muscle serves as protection.  Football is a brutal game, and if you want to survive you better be bigger than your opponent.  Extra muscle is your suit of armor, and the right football strength and conditioning program will help you build it.  It will protect you from the vicious hits, as well as allow you to dish them out.

Best Football Strength Training Exercises for Mass

  • DB Bench Press
  • Over Head Press
  • Bend Over Rows
  • Single Arm DB Rows
  • Chin Ups
  • Front Squats
  • Deadlifts
  • Back Squats
  • Barbell Curls
  • Close Grip Bench Press
These big compounds movements should be the staple of any football strength program.  They give you the most bang for your buck.  Concentration curls are not going to do anything for you except make you look better in your uniform.  There is nothing wrong with that until you step on the field and meet an opponent who spent that time lifting heavy weight.  Who do you think is going to win that battle?  All things being equal the strongest athlete will win.  This is especially true in a contact sport like football.  So your football strength training should always strive to make you stronger.
