Increase Squats and Front Squats

Increasing your squat weight and being able to squat more will give you explosive strength. Explosive strength is extremely beneficial in many sports from Football to Soccer to Sprinting. Prioritize the muscle groups you want to strengthen and identify the ones which would benefit the most from recovery. Compex training recommends focusing on the glutes, quads, hamstrings and abs. Remember to turn it up during each contraction.
