A successful football kicker or punter must have strong quads, hamstrings, hips, hip flexors and glutes, as well as the key components of power, accuracy, and distance. The more flexible, balanced, and accurate a kicker is, the more effective their kicking skills will become on the football field. Using Myosource Kinetic Bands while you practice your punts and kicks, will help you build leg strength, improve flexibility, balance, and leg drive which can help you kick the football farther and higher.
Football kickers must be able to put a spiral on the punts and build up hang-time as they progress. Kickers must also be able to punt the ball high into the air so that it comes down at the proper time and in the desired location on the field.
Watch the punters during an NFL football game and it's easy to see the great amount of flexibility, strength, and quickness they have in their kicking leg. Football kickers can easily strengthen not only their kicking leg, but their entire lower body and core by wearing Myosource Kinetic Bands while they practice.
Since resistance training with Kinetic Bands allows for full range of motion, kickers can improve their strength and overall level of fitness at the same time they work to improve the distance and accuracy of their kicks and punts. Myosource Kinetic Bands can be used by punters and kickers during the dynamic warm-up and all areas of training.
The great thing about training with leg resistance bands like Kinetic Bands is that you can reap the benefits and maximize your training efforts by just wearing them while you perform your normal football drills and/or workout routines. Here are a few suggested drills to get you started.
Football punters must focus on technique and form in order to produce a high spiral with great hang time, as well as reaching the intended direction and distance.
This is a very difficult drill because the football is coming from an unknown direction and pressure is quickly put on the punter.
