It seems like squats are the answer to everything

If you want to learn how to kick a ball far, go out and kick a ball. I play soccer, and I was always a decent kicker but I could never get a lot of distance. Even after my Sophomore year when I went from not lifting with my legs at all to Deadlifting around 350 and Squatting around 280 for reps, it didn't do **** to make me kick a ball farther. The only way I would ever improve is when I went out every day for a month or two and kicked that ****er practicing good form.

Plus, I know about 50 guys who are thin as a rail (you know the classic High School Soccer bod; never been to a weight room, arms like your sister's etc) who could kick the ball from 18 to 18 no problem.

It's all about form and muscle memory. I know you're talking about Football, but I figure it's the same idea.

I guessing hip flexibility and strength would be important to kicking.
