Extreme Drills #10: Weighted Squat

Weighted squats will workout your quadriceps and hamstrings much harder than just regular squats. Place weight on a dip belt around your waist. Step up onto boxes or benches spaced apart; one foot on each one. Arms can be extended forward for balance throughout the exercise. Squat down until your thighs are just past parallel to the floor. Extend your knees and hips until legs are straight. Return and repeat.

Extreme Drills #11: Vertical Jump

The vertical jump is all about lower-body explosion and power. The athlete stands flat-footed and they measure his reach. It is important to accurately measure the reach, because the differential between the reach and the flag the athlete touches is his vertical jump measurement.

Extreme Drills #12: Russian Twists

Sit on the ground with your knees bent and your heels just off the floor. Holding a med ball at chest level, rotate left and touch the ball to the floor. Rotate right and touch the ball to the floor. Repeat in a controlled manner for specified reps. A strong core is key for increasing throwing velocity of QBs and also helps you better absorb bone-crunching hits from tackles.
