Agree, I dont care how it looks, i want the strength and explosiveness. I said running backs because they need the the actual strength and not just the looks. Ill usually do 8 reps at the most then go down to like 6, etc.
Iv experienced consistent increases in weight for the exercises for the past few months but recently its a struggle to get a little increase after multiple workouts and you feel the same strength.
Also im 6.'1.5 235-240 pounds would probably be able to get down to like 225 or so if i was completely cut. Any dosing recommendations? Do you have to take a lot or can you just take it in very small amounts to get some strength gains? you hear about these people taking too much and becoming unbalanced later on.
For Explosiveness do walking lunges with weight, and plyometrics. With legs u have to change angles and reps and tempos to keep them confused. plyometrics will work on your explosiveness for sure...lunges will also considering the motion with weight. Also u may want to consider yoga. as a running back with the constant pounding on the body and lower body in general that extra flexibility not only in your legs but in your core will make u a much more versatile back as u will be able to sustain more punishment and thereby give out more punishment.
