Upgrade your upper body strength

Upper body strength is a vital part of the modern game, and this exercise – devised by personal trainer to Premier League players Jamie Velocity, and inspired by Zlatan Ibrahimovic – is a great little circuit to help you battle better against physical defenders.

Using a combination of Keiser machine and TRX equipment, every move is targeted to hone the muscles you’ll need while backing into defenders, holding them off to shield the ball, and generally developing the robustness to not get bullied by bulky stoppers.
