4th & hell strength test

No program will get you stronger, faster. The only one who can stop you is you.

The Niagara X-men collegiate football team is a non-profit Canadian program sponsored by X Fitness. The X-men have been offered to play two games in the United States versus American colleges at the end of October, beginning of November, 2013. The program is called 4th & hell – The Football Strength Test. One-month of H.I.T.T.I.N.G. – High Intensity Training To Increase Next-level Game-performance. The program includes: .
– Lifting
– Running
– Full contact practices
– all practices and both football games will be filmed to help players get recruited to the next level.

The team strength & conditioning program will get you stronger, faster. Playing against American colleges will make you better, if you can cut it. Game film of your performance against American colleges will help raise your credibility because your performance is only half the test. Who you play against matters more. American colleges are as good as it gets for competition.

Not everyone who registers makes it. 4th & hell is Athletic Darwinism. Survival of the fittest. The weak will not make the final cut. No one will make the team without meeting lifting standards. Lifting is to football what skating is to hockey. This isn’t a participation sport like T-ball where everyone is guaranteed playing time the moment mom and dad pay up. Nothing is free in life. There are no discounts to get to the next level. Pay the price if you want to make it. If you don’t, stay where you are. Football is a high-risk activity. So is life. High-risk training is the only preparation. Without it, you’re a threat to yourself and your team.
