{FITNESS} Russell Wilson's Football Workout

Russell Wilson has got one ring already in his pocket. The Seattle Seahawks' slinger is up there with the elite quarterbacks in the league. Find out how he prepares his body for battle.

How it Works
Wilson lifts weights four days per week. Sessions are split up into two speed days and two strength days. The speed days focus on variants of Olympic weightlifting exercises that develop power—this aids Wilson in running, cutting, and scrambling in the pocket.

The strength days include heavier lifts to build greater muscle power, as well as corrective exercises to prevent injury. For example, the dumbbell I-Y-T, band pull-apart, and scap pushup all focus on the upper back. The stronger the muscles around Wilson’s shoulder blades are, the better he can wind up for a deep pass, and the healthier his shoulders will be after hours of throws and brutal collisions.
