Win every 50-50 ball with this move


| 1 min watch

Life’s all about give and take, but for now, let’s focus on the take.

This is how to do a block tackle. 

Here’s the scenario: A loose ball and two opposing players arrive at the same time. Often called a “50-50 ball,” it’s a frequent — and sometimes daunting — occurrence. But with practice, you can win the ball — safely and effectively. The secret? The block tackle.

It starts with having a strong base. Plant the front foot to the side of the ball, with a bent knee for a low center of gravity. Then use the other foot to contact the center of the ball and follow through with some oomph.
