I’m a soccer player and it’s a contact sport, nothing like football but strenght is a big advantage. The thing is I cannot afford to pack on weight because it would affect my technical perfomance, I’m already on a solid weight and almost shredded without being skinny but guys of my complexion or slightly heavier (10 Ibs for most) always have the upper hand strenght-wise and it becomes too limiting of a factor for my game. I’m a fast sprinter but it takes me forever to accelerate as well and I suspect strenght has something to do with that too.
Would it be possible to make me stronger so that I can outpower players like me or at least kind of match the heavier ones without putting on significant weight? How so? Thx in advance!
