Are You Ready For Some Football?

Football is Back - Time to Train!

If you are anything like me, you are thrilled that the NFL is starting back up again! After lockout concerns and fears of no football for the year, even the disorganized and generally sloppy play known as the NFL Preseason is a welcome sight!

Just because it is time to cozy up on your favorite lounge chair (with snacks and beverages within arm's reach) and cheer on your favorite team, does not mean you can not continue to progress your goals in the weight room as well. As I have said a number of times, balance is crucial to a health and wellness program that one is going to stick with. Enjoy yourself on Sundays (or Monday...or Thursday), but make up for it with unrelenting, hard work in the gym during the week.

The following is a beginner training program from Muscle and Strength that they call "Off-Season Football Training". Don't let the name fool you though. While the NFL is back in season, this "off-season" training setup looks to be one that would be very nice for the individual that is relatively new to training and is looking for a structured approach to getting or staying in shape during the NFL football season!
