We can learn a lot for our lifestyle from such a great athletic demonstration.
Here are a couple tips in helping your football game, and also your health: Running Drills: A Way of Life Running drills are one of the most basic ways that you can enhance your endurance.
These drills are meant to help you play your hardest throughout the entire game.
Teams, or individuals, that do not complain throughout the running drills will be better off and better prepared for a game.
Whether you are tired, exhausted, and ready to throw up, if you keep running your added strength will help you win games.
Running also will teach you how to push yourself even when you don't want too.
Up Downs Conditioning Drill Up downs is an excellent conditioning drill that will improve reaction time and endurance.
This drill consists of having players run in place as fast and as hard as they can.
From time to time the coach will signal to the players, by whistle or a command, to get down - meaning that they drop down do a push up and get back up as quickly as possible to run again.
As up downs require endurance and strength, players are encouraged to start in slow short burst and work up to longer and more intense sessions.
Learning the Plays from the Playbook Every football team will have certain plays.
It will be essential to learn your part in that play to benefit yourself, and the whole team.
Rule number one in starting out a new play is following your coach's instructions.
A lot of habits can form in the first couple of practice plays, for this sake it is a good idea to take them slow at the start.
Remember that if you need help, you should ask for it.
At times we have seen a player fail to advance or refine their techniques because they don't ask for added assistance.
Don't let this happen to you After practice is over visualize the play in your mind.
Go over it again and again, and you will find that your mind will help you learn the plays even when you sleep.
Ball handling Drill: "Hot potato" Without a solid foundation of ball handling players will be easy prey to a solid defensive team.
This drill is meant to help players control and develop their ball handling skills.
Players will move the football from one hand to another hand around differing parts of their body.
The drill is simple and starts by having the player pass the ball around their head, torso, arms, knees, and even between their feet from one hand to another in constant motion.
Coaches can mix up the drill by shouting out body parts that the players will have to start circling with the football; they can also reverse the direction that the ball is traveling by calling, "reverse".
The reverse option is an important command as it will keep the players on their toes and focuses on concentration and ball handling.
We recommend that you end this drill by doing several football drops.
This means that the player will drop the football and retrieve it again quickly.
To further increase pickup skills have your players change up the hands that they are using so that both their strong and weak hands are developed.
