Aerobics & lifting: My two teenage boys are already in full swing getting ready for fall football with the oldest entering his freshman year. Try to find out from the real source- the coaches, as to their precise recommendations regarding expectations of your athlete prior to showing up for fall fb. Increasing endurance and speed/acceleration along with an appropriate weight training program are all important.
