As the anchor for the U.S. Women's National Team, soccer superstar Abby Wambach uses her strength, power and athletic ability to overwhelm opponents.
Wambach improves her game in the weight room with workouts like the one she performed below, which included explosive, strength and plyometric moves to develop the full complement of her athletic abilities. Perform the exercises for only five reps to focus on moving explosively, rather than lifting slow and heavy. The workout also includes exercises performed on a BOSU ball to improve balance and strength at the same time, and finishes with core strengthening exercises.
Incorporate this workout into your soccer training program once per week to become a strong and powerful player like Wambach.
