I played football for over a decade at the high school, college, and pro level.
Over that time, I had a LOT of exposure to different training methods.
And I use a many of the techniques, drills, exercises, etc in my workouts today.
Though we were training in a specific way for our sport, a lot of the things we did can be tweaked and adapted for general fat loss and conditioning goals … they are effective, and not to mention, a lot of fun! 🙂
Today, I have a quick bodyweight circuit to share with you that I got from a strength and conditioning coach I worked with at the pro level. We use exercises and drills like this now every day at FVT boot camp. Give it a try, and kick your fat loss and conditioning into overdrive!
9 Minute “Football Conditioning” Bodyweight Circuit
Do as many reps as possible of each exercise in 30 seconds. Take as little rest as possible between moves. Rest for 60 seconds at the end of the circuit and repeat two more times for a total of three rounds:
– high knee
– hindu / divebomber push up
– side to side hop
– bodyweight row
– jumping jacks
Give that 9 minute bodyweight conditioning circuit a go, and kick your fat loss efforts into overdrive.
And, if you want to experience a workout like this first hand for free, check out the Bring-a-Buddy Boot Camp we have coming up at FVT on the 10th of October:
