  • Potential College Punter

    Currently training twice a week punting and kicking.
    However im looking at increasing leg power whilst maintaining flexibility.

    I do alot of lunges to increase my flexibility, however havent found a good mix of both.

    Any ideas?

      Are you incorporating any plyometrics? Explosive jump drills? Leg extensions? Intense stretching at least once a week? Pilates?

              Front squats, power cleans, extensions, regular squats should do it.

                      You will see alot of girls in the gym attach a cable to their ankle and go through "kick backs" and "side raises"... this is something that has worked very well for track athletes due to the recruitment of muscle fiber needed to control the cable moving forward and backwards, also it seems to increase flexibility. It was something I did 3x a week before every track season (I ran sub 50 second 400's in high school) Give it a shot!
