In 2012, Lardarius suffered an ACL injury. So, he’s even more concerned with exercises to help improve his body. So, the goal of these drills is to keep Lardarius Webb conditioned and injury free for the upcoming NFL season. During the season, Webb works with his Baltimore Raves teammates including Jimmy Smith, Will Hill, Kendrick Lewis, Kyle Arrington, Brynden Trawick, Terrence Brooks and Shareece Wright.

Single-Arm Sled March

The Single-Arm Sled March exercise helps for strengthening the hip rotators, while also strengthening the shoulders. This is considered a defensive-back-specific exercise, as Lardarius Webb’s trainer says “hip extensions from isometrics help as a sports-specific strengthening exercise for DBs.”

Single Arm Sled March Lardarius WebbThe sled will try to move you left or right. By continuing to move straight ahead, it becomes an isometric drill. Lardarius Webb talks about how the sled marches improve his conditioning:

In the 4th quarter, and overtime, I’m able to use my endurance and my legs. These sled marches really help my endurance a lot.

Back Low Walk

The “Back Low Walk” exercise helps Lardarius Webb with his backpedaling technique. Doing back low walks forces your feet to and ankles to prepare for a long NFL season. A DB’s ability to absorb force, and redirect it to the opponent, is the point of this exercise.

Back Low Walk Exercise RoutineAs you do this exercise, jump each step. That makes it more of a “power pedal” than just backpedaling. For the Back Low Walk, complete the drill by backpedaling for 20 yards.

Lardarius Webb says:

Backpedal is so important. I have to get my legs strong. It helps me stay in my backpedal. It helps me when I have to press these big receivers.

Lateral Pedal Drill

Graded as the 78th best cornerback in the league, Lardarius Webb is always looking to improve. The Lateral Pedal Drill focuses on plyometrics (gaining strength). After that, Webb focuses on his backpedaling and weaving.

The Lateral Pedal Drill starts with a low-grade plyometric. Then, it adjusts into a DB angle-pedal-weave drill. As you do this drill, Lardarius Webb’s trainer says: “Think “inside edge” then “move.”

Webb says:

You fatigue me first, and then you work me. And, I’m expected to finish the game strong. So, it’s basically: Start the game strong, and finish the game strong.

Lardarius Webb Workout Motivation

Lardarius Webb says his workout motivation stems from wanting to be one of the greatest. Even though he was never seen as one of the best cornerbacks, he says his goal is always to make it to the Pro Bowl or the Superbowl. Lardarius Webb says:

An 8-8 will make you motivated. Winning the Superbowl will make you motivated. I want to be one of the greatest. That’s why I put the work in.

Lardarius-Webb-WorkoutWebb ends by talking about the confidence it takes to play cornerback in the NFL:

You got to want it more than the next man. You got to have confidence. When you come out on that field against A.J. Green or Calvin Johnson, you’ve got to bring your confidence. If somebody wants to play corner at the high school level, or college, I would say play with confidence, play with swag.
