Burn Fat During Football Offseason

Football training in the offseason is the time to burn fat, get stronger and improve speed and power. If you are too fat, you won't be the football player you could be...you would not reach your potential!

Stop me if you've heard this phrase:

Other things being equal, a muscular, powerful athlete will outperform a fat, slower or skinny, weaker athlete. Sports Fitness Hut's Fat Blaster Athletic Power Training System will give you your "lean and mean" athletic machine!

I am seeing too many "fat athletes" on every level of competition--from the professional ranks to the kid ranks! If you want to be your best playing football, you need to control your body fat. Offseason training is the perfect time to improve your body and skills.

The best way to burn body fat is to increase muscle mass through regular weight training (including power and bodyweight exercises). Body composition is the key to peak athletic performance. Stated another way, how much lean mass does your body have in relation to fat mass. One major athletic goal should always be to decrease fat mass to an acceptable level for your sport.

Have you ever seen an overfat football player who was performing at a high level. That same player would perform at an even higher level if his body fat was at an acceptable level for athletes.

Acceptable levels of body fat for football players are between 6-13%. Running backs, receivers, defensive backs and some linebackers should be on the lower end of this body fat range. Linemen would generally be at 13% or above.

The point is this: if you are serious about your athletic performance on the football field, being overfat will not help you achieve your highest athletic potential.

Blast the body fat and become a better football player!

Train hard and smart!
