We’re not referring to bodybuilding, but rather to movements that directly affect sports performance. We believe that by doing specific workouts and doing them over a period of time, a guy can surpass the athletic feats he was “born to be able to do.”

That, of course, requires plenty of hard work to improve. But the first step in getting better in your respective sport is figuring out where you could use some improvement.
