Strength training is an essential part of any football training program, but training should not stop there. While many teams incorporate several other training styles into the training for their football players, one key component of a fully fleshed-out program is force-velocity curve training. The force-velocity curve training methods help prepare football players for the intensity of the game. AT S8, we combine this concept to a key in-depth training program designed to build the core of the athletes themselves. Different muscle actions and groups have anatomical properties that make the way many football coaches train their athletes ineffective while putting the players at risk for injury. S8 focuses on increasing the speed and agility of the football player while also building up their core strength to be able to perform better and use proper techniques to reduce the risk of injury.
Speed and agility are prime components of a good offense for any football team. In many games, wins or losses are dependent on the player’s ability to turn quickly and avoid obstacles. To improve this skill in any football player, we not only work on specific exercises to improve speed and maneuvering skills, but we also look at building the strength and mobility in the supporting muscles.
While many people focus on the importance of the offensive players scoring touchdowns, one could argue that the defensive line is of prime importance. Teaching skills to protect the quarterback from the opposing team requires targeting exercises that help the players master their positions. Like with the offensive positions, the defensive positions require much more than skills training. They need to condition their body to withstand the demands of the position and increase success on the field while protecting themselves from injury.

At S8, bullet-proofing and protecting the athlete at the start of the football season is one of our top sport-specific training focuses. That’s why we focus on building up the strength, stamina, and the condition of the body. An athlete can’t improve upon a specific football skill until his or her body is in peak condition for performance. The body is the root of how well a football player will do on and off the field. A good football-specific training program is so much more than tackling power and running speed. A strong football program actively works to protect the football players themselves. At S8, we focus on the development of the full athlete. We strive to be a part of their football journey and become a partner in their athletic success.
