It's very cardio-intensive, so get ready to pant, and have flashbacks to summer two-a-days, coach standing over you with a whistle.
One of my clients plays for the Minnesota Vixen, a women's football team. They just made the playoffs (whoop!). To send her off in style, I put together this "football practice" circuit for our women's-only strength class at Movement Minneapolis.It's very cardio-intensive, so get ready to pant, and have flashbacks to summer two-a-days, coach standing over you with a whistle. ;)
Football Practice Circuit Workout
The WorkoutDo three rounds of 45 seconds on, 30 seconds off. (A note: Negative rest time in my circuits is rare, and is only for the fit! Rest a little longer between drills, if need be.) Rest two minutes upon completion of each round.
- Ladder drill (Icky shuffle, boogie, etc. -- your choice)
- Up and backs
- Switch-foot hops
- Sandbag clean (can also use a kettlebell)
- Renegade row
