American football is a difficult game which requires the maximum of your physical abilities, strategic thinking, and teamwork. Here we have collected some tips to help you in becoming a better football player when you are only starting.

1. Nothing Can Make You Perfect But Practice



7 Football Tips For Beginners The best way to improve your skills is to practice. No matter if you play football, teach kids or write novels. The more time you spend on the football field, the better your performance will be. Remember that you should never miss a practice with your team and don’t be lazy to do some extra work before or after the training.
It will also show your coach that you are devoted and responsible, committed to your team. In your spare time you can find a partner and practice the basic skills: catching, blocking, passing, covering, form tackling and the rest.

2. Rules Should Be Learned



Before you start playing a game, learn the rules. And it is not only about the basic rules, but also the specific aspects of it, as knowing the rules means being aware of all of them. What should you do with a ball when you pick it up? What can your opponent do? The better you know the rules of the game, the more chances you have to win.

3. Use Proper Football Gear



Football accessories are so important when it comes to playing football. You should consider buying a good- quality football equipment. In case it is hard to choose, think about such giants as Under Armor, Nike, Oakley and other sport gear companies.

4. Get Stronger And Faster



Take your time at the gym. Put your main effort on improving your strength and mass, agility and speed. Remember that your goal is to increase your performance, but not to shape a perfect body, as many beginners do. Good idea is to make a workout plan, as it will give you the ability to measure your success and allow you to be consistent in your work.

5. Think What You Eat



A football player should be a strong person. Having a good diet can help your performance. While training can give you only 20% of muscle growth, the food you eat accounts for 80%. Thus you should think about a particular diet. Protein is essential to muscle growth. You can calculate how much protein intake you need be a simple formula.

Moderately active people, as usually beginners are, exercise 5-7 times a week, including weight training 3-4 times per week. To calculate the number of grams of protein to eat every day they should multiply their weight in pounds by 0.6.


6. Don’t Compete, Just Play



Enjoy every game. Moreover, enjoy the difficulties and new challenges every game brings you. If you win all the games, it is a good reason to consider playing for a team in a higher division. Only challenges will allow you to learn, grow and become a better player.

7. Sleep Enough


Sleep is a vital part of your health. 90% of healing is done during the sleep. It is important to have an everyday sleeping schedule and especially have enough hours of sleep before the game. Alcohol interrupts your sleep cycle and the production of testosterone, which is beneficial for your muscle growth and energy.
