I plan on going out for football this coming spring, and am now starting to bulk up/get into shape for football. I realize that the squat is the king of all leg exercises, but I am confused on which variation would be most benificial in terms of adding mass, power, and most importantly speed, while still keeping me limber and agile. I know that the Narrow Olympic Squat is more Quad oreinted, while the Wide Powerlifting Squat is more Glute, Hamstring Oriented. I'm leaning towards the Wide Squat variation becuase of how important the glutes/Hams are for speed, but am not 100% sure. Although one concern I have about the Wide Squat is whether or not it will effect my agility and flexibility? Because those two things are very important to me.
Any additional tips, information, articles to reference, as well as any other exercises I should implement into my training would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
