Weight training with gorilla

By being a goalkeeper, you experience a world that most people cannot imagine. You spend your nights and weekends in smoky bars, quietly and politely watching bar patrons purposely fill their bodies with alcohol as a way to alter their own judgment and find opportunities with the fair sex. You also need to end fights, guard the door, and sometimes restrain people so they don’t hurt themselves or others. It’s a job that can change from boring to deadly in the blink of an eye. Even the goalkeeper is responsible for training smartly and responsibly to ensure that he can do the best job possible. Here are some training tips you can employ to ensure you are in the best possible strength, cardiovascular, and skill set position for the tasks your job as a goalkeeper may entail.

Weight training

Being big and strong is the first way you are going to be an effective goalkeeper. If you are old enough, the mere presence of your mother will be enough to avoid most confrontations. However, there will be times when real force will be required to subdue people and control situations. Your lifting regimen should consist of the heavy compound movements of the bench press, squats, deadlifts, rows, shoulder presses, skull crushers, and barbell bicep curls. Keep your rep range in the 5-10 area to build functional strength.

Cardio workout

There’s nothing worse than hanging out on gas while dealing with an angry 300-pound drunk bar customer on the concrete floor. Brief but intense confrontations can mean a great waste of bodily resources. For this reason, you should complete 20 to 30 minutes of cardio training at the end of each workout. You don’t need to worry about using a high intensity level; just walking 3 miles per hour on a 2% incline is more than adequate. In addition to building your lung capacity to help in stressful situations, you will also improve your own cardiovascular fitness and overall health levels.

Proper training

Safety is always a question of being a goalkeeper that is never overlooked, when it comes to the goalkeeper himself. However, it is important that the porter also consider a quick 2-4 week training session on proper stripping and securing methods to ensure that noisy bar patrons are subdued quickly, without causing serious physical injury to the person. If your bar is being sued, you are losing money and will probably be the first man to be fired. Enroll in a self defense course with an emphasis on safe takedowns that will protect you and the drunk bar patron.

The old rebound rule is, “If you don’t have a fight for three weeks, start one!” And it is true that many in the field will instigate confrontations to present management with a sustained need for their presence. Tactics like this aside, if you present a solid, fit, and well-trained package, you will always have a job in the entertainment industry.
