OK. So i need some help with my squat.
First thing’s first. I am confused about which stance i should use and when. Up until now i’ve always kept my feet a little bit more than shoulder width apart when squatting. A lot of the articles i have read suggest a very wide stance. I trust this would improve my squat numbers, but would it carryover into football and help me push around fat people and such?
My focus is NOT how much weight i can lift. I mean, it is kind of, but i want as much carryover onto the football field as possible. So how far apart should i have my legs on max effort days? dynamic days?
Also, with my goals in mind, what other excercises do you think would benefit me most? I’ve been thinking about going in my back yard and doing 20-40 yard sprints and such. I’ve been looking a lot at box squats and power cleans too. But, since i lift i alone i am hesitant to try these. I have a basic understanding of power cleans from my weight class at school (though the teacher didnt spend that much time on form :/). Box squats don’t seem like they’d be that hard to get form-wise. I’m not dumb. I woulnd’t use very much weight until i was sure of my form.
