Im a football player going to be a junior next year and i would enjoy starting on varsity. The coach didn't give us a training program. He wants us to be in the weight room 3-4 days a week though. I have a pretty good lifting backroung. For the past year ive been doing a powerlifting style program. But in the past months ive been getting extremly intersted in Olympic lifting. The speed-strength that those athletes have is amazing. So im wondering if O-lifitng would be good for football. Ive been practicing my form on the lifts and i got them down well. One of my brothers friend is an olympic lifter and thought me the lifts. So my question basicly is in your opinon whold olifting or powerlifting be better for football. Any recommened programs? Also since i get tested on bench press i would have to work that in somehow.
if it helps im about 5'7 185lbs
thanks for the advice
