Conditioned for Football: Are You Ready?

Football is a game of carrying or passing a ball into an end zone or kicking a ball through goal post uprights by one team to score more points than the other.  Football requires strength, speed, coordination and strategy. A variety of football positions are met by a mix of player sizes, power, and abilities.



Goal post uprights are placed 18′ 6″ apart in the NFL and college football. The crossbar is 10 feet off of the ground. High school goal post uprights are placed 23′ 4″ apart.  Hash marks are placed along two lines the width of the goal post in the NFL. College hash mark lines are placed at wider positions.

The following exercises are done in a variety of combinations.
