Understanding the Importance of a Solid Knowledge of Fundamentals

Some benefits to Weightlifting Lifting weights is a fundamental requirement to improve your football skills.
Not only will it add muscle to your body and increase your strength, it will also help you to increase your maximum power.
Maximum power differs in importance to strength due to the fact that it is exertion during play and not just muscle mass.
It is the quickness and exertion that will enable a football player to accomplish their plays with skill on the field.
Weight lifting can cause injuries, and as such we highly recommend having a professional coach on hand during weightlifting sessions.
You trainer will also help you accomplish your weightlifting goals and teach you new techniques.
Strip Tackling In order to win football games you need to have possession of the football.
Forcing a fumble is one of the quickest ways that you can turn the tides and retain possession of the football.
Practice dislodging the football on the field in pairs of players.
The defender will practice stripping the ball by bringing his hands up quickly with a clenched fist to grab the opponent and as he does so to aim to knock out the football.
This drill is most effective if you start it slow focusing on the motions needed to be effective, and then speed up over time.
Angle tackling It is a great idea to practice angle tackles with your defense because not all tackles are made with the opponent right in front of you.
Set up a simple drill with two players, on as the offense with the ball running in a straight line, the other as the defender running towards him at some angle.
As the opponent comes toward the defender he will need to adjust his body position and shorten the angle, put his foot in front of the opponent, and make sure that he put his head in front of the opponent.
The tackle is completed as the defender wraps his hands tightly around the opponent, straightens his hips and pushes the opponent to the ground or off sides.
Ball security: The Gauntlet Drill Ball security, preventing fumbles and turnovers is perhaps the most important skill the offensive team can have.
Quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers should work on this skill constantly.
That is why the gauntlet drill was created, to test and practice effective ball security.
This drill is set up with one ball carrier, there objective is to run through a group of opponents that try to knock the ball out.
Each of the defenders can line up in any way making the ball carrier run any sort of patterns with the ball, the point is to pose a challenge to hold onto the ball.
To be effective with this drill have the ball carrier run the drill holding the ball in several different positions.
