I am training for football. Should I do Split or Push Jerks?
Also, my workout is a 3-day per week workout. Day 1 I do Bench(heavy), day 2 Incline(medium), and day 3 DB Bench(heavy). I have currently maxed out on the dumbbells so i want to change the DB Bench to a different workout.
What should I change it to?
And one more question: are regular lunges good for football training? On my program I do a type of lunge (with a BB) where you go down and hold it, and twist the bar for a certain number of reps(do it with each leg and thats a set). I don’t really know the purpose of that…should I just do normal lunges with the barbell(no twist)?
Thanks guys your help is appreciated.[/quote]
I’d do split Jerks for say a 6 - 8 weeks then switch to Push jerks, then move on to split jerks from behind your neck. NO ONE needs to do an exercise for ever and ever. Switch it up, unless your goal is to have a massive lift in that exercise. Even then switching to a slightly different exercise will help.
Can you do lunges that mean you actually travel a distance? Not the ones where you stay on the same spot? If you can do that. PULL FORWARDS WITH YOUR FRONT FOOT and have your back leg pull through high. We do this at hurdling and you can use say a barbell and work on up. Great exercise. Really gets your glutes use to pulling through and will help to make you faster.
