The sun was shining last Thursday when I had my first training session with Alex Molden. It seemed a good omen for what lay ahead; a morning spent trying to understand the proper ways to strengthen my body.
I’m pretty sure the reason former NFL and college football player turned athletic trainer Alex Molden agreed to help me on my journey to learn to kick a field goal was because, after watching previous Vlogs, he was worried I was going to hurt myself if I didn’t get into better condition. Certainly I had my own concerns about this. (See my previous video where I discussed the possibility falling on my bum while kicking like Charlie Brown.)
No worries of falling on your bum though if you are Alex Molden… watching him stand in his loaded position and bounce his fist against his steely buttock muscles convinced me I had a long, long way to go to feel like anything other than a Duck (and I don’t’ mean the U of O kind here) when standing like that.
Here are some highlights from my training session. If you want to track my progress check out my training log; hopefully it will help me stay motivated or I imagine my next session with Alex might not be so gentle.
Kicking like my Hero
They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks; well I am about to prove them wrong.
I hope you enjoy the journey.
