    My girlfriends little brother who is going to be heading off to college this year to play WR for the football team has asked me to help him work out this summer till he goes to Camp. I have been working on a few things but I wanted to see what the real fitness people think. My ideas were to focus more on cardio, and speed. We have 5 days each week to work with so I was thinking doing a 3,2 rotation each week. 3 days would lift weight, 2 days would be cardio and then switch it each week.

    Now what excersises would you recommend in the weight room? and then what would you recommend for cardio? I am sure someone out their played college ball. any help is much appreciated!

    thanks!

    I played two years on D-Line - but our whole teams program was basically the same.

    4 days a week on the weights
    4 days a week running.

    Split it up, two days 'distance' sprints, two day agility movements - mix it up
    -pyramid up to 110 yrd sprints.
    -cone drills
    -ladder drills
    -shuttles

    Find out what his fitness test is when he gets to camp. First day we had to do 16 110 yard sprints - us fatties had 19 seconds a piece

    Explosive movements are going to be the best for your little bro. clean/squat/presses, calf raises, exposive squats, deep squats.

    Don't neglect the hammys - SLDLS and leg curls

    Do some research on the net - i'm sure there are some 5-star routines out there.

    make sure you are hitting the core. Lots of abs and core type exercises.

    warming up is key. You should be sweating before you start running. make sure you stretch after you finish running too.

    Do some research for camps and skill places in your area.
