Upper body strength and stability play central roles in winning at football. Players must be able to ward off defenders, battle for position or take down opponents. Therefore, the ability to functionally train the upper body with high loads in a way that integrates the entire body in the movement as a complete unit has tremendous transferability to the demands of the game.
Exercises like the TRX Single Arm Row with rotation shown here requires high strength coupled with full body muscular integration. These movements offer considerable advantages in training that map directly to the demands of football.
