Abstract

TRAINING THE FOOTBALL QUARTERBACK (QB) REQUIRES A UNIQUE UNDERSTANDING OF THE BIOMECHANICS OF THE MOTION INVOLVED AND THE NEED TO TRAIN THE INDIVIDUAL TO PERFORM THE MOVEMENTS NECESSARY TO MOVE EFFICIENTLY, POSITION THE LIMBS EFFECTIVELY, AND LOAD THE KINETIC CHAIN SUCCESSFULLY. ALL OF THIS NEEDS TO OCCUR WITHIN A MINIMAL TIME PERIOD UNDER SIGNIFICANT TIME PRESSURE AND A CHANGING DEFENSE. HAVING A STRUCTURED, QB-SPECIFIC, PROGRAM CAN AID IN THIS DEVELOPMENT BY CREATING AND IMPLEMENTING A TRAINING PROGRAM TO FOCUS ON THE SPECIFIC NEEDS OF THE ATHLETE WITHIN THE LARGER TEAM-BASED STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROGRAM.
