Football: Total Body Fitness
Exercise to Get Fit and Boost Health
Football games help to raise general fitness levels by exercising and strengthening a variety of muscle-types throughout the body, including both the cardiac and skeletal muscles. By raising heart-beat rate, they contribute to improved heart health and lower risk of heart disease.
Football: Muscles Worked
Football workouts are also useful for muscle-development, as they strengthen and develop the bottom, hips and leg muscles. In addition, they work the gluteal muscles, specifically the gluteus maximus. They keep the hip flexor muscles flexible and develop the hamstring muscles (the biceps femoris, vastus latoralis and semimembranous muscles). Also the quad muscles, the vastus medialis, vastus intermedius, vastus lateralis and the rectus femoris are developed.
