For offensive linemen:
1) Board Drill- Working your basic step drills that your coach probably does every day in practice. You start the board straight, then tilt the board left and right 3 Sets right/left
2) Kick step Drill- Came up with it on the fly. All you are doing is start at the first then kick back to the last cone then kick back to first. kick back to the third cone then kick to the first cone, then kick to the second cone back to the first cone. 3 Sets
3) Mirror Drill- Moving side to side without crossing your feet, big chest with hands behind your back 3 Sets for 30 seconds, second time through have a person in front of you and work on shooting your hands
4) Continue Mirror drill, Moving side to side then taking a kick step back, 3 sides left- 3 sides rights. This drill works with your post and kick step position
5) Agility- It is always important as a lineman to get some agility in
6) Zone Step drills, just working on your different steps in your zone scheme.
For defensive linemen:
All of these drills can be done in your back yard. Just be creative. I just gave lineman a 30 minute work out with boards and cones. I demonstrated each drill so the student athletes can see.
This should show you how you can get a lot of work in with limited resources and to be creative.
It’s important to come together as a community right to make sure the kids stay safe and active.
Some student-athletes better understand technique visually, where they can see someone else doing the drills.
Different kids respond to different teaching methods. There’s so many different workouts you can get in with the resources around.
Stay healthy and be safe.
