When to Start and What to Work On
Aspiring football players are usually going to start a strength program when they start playing football. In most cases, in order to play college football, most players have already been playing since either high school or younger and they are conditioned for the rigors of playing college football. Players who start out at a young age will likely play in the pee wee leagues, which are designated for those who are six until either the end of elementary or the start of junior high.
Depending on the junior high school, there may or may not be a football team, however there may still be programs outside of the school that they can participate in. High schools will most likely either continue for a player or will start for many interested in playing. Junior varsity are usually for sophomores and juniors, but sometimes remarkable freshmen are able to join; from junior varsity, players who continue playing are eligible to play varsity, which is usually the main high school team.
Players should concentrate on all parts, though the leg muscles, arms, and chest are important. Depending on the position that the player is taking, a coach may design a workout for each position; for instance, the quarterback should focus on arm strength so that that he's able to deliver a passing throw; defensive linemen should work gaining upper body strength, so that they can stop the quarterback or the runner.
