What should a snapper do in the weight room?
VS has partnered with one of the best strength coaches in the country to design a program specifically for specialists. VS does not take the place of your team’s strength coach. Specialists need to participate in the team workouts just like any other player. Many specialists, however, do not have a team or coach to train with. For this reason, VS has a program to follow to support on-field training. The 3 best things a specialist can achieve in the weight room is explosiveness, flexibility, and core strength.
