The Upper-Body Workout That Powered Devin Hester Into the NFL Record Books

Check out the workout Devin Hester used to build record-breaking speed and strength in the NFL.

Devin Hester has always looked up to Deion Sanders.

That might still be the case, but now it's Sanders' turn to look up to Hester in the record books.

Last week, Hester surpassed Sanders' record when he high-stepped his way into the end zone for his 20th career return touchdown. Hester's knack for taking it to the house comes from his unique blend of speed and strength. He uses his speed to run past defenders covering kicks and his strength to run through arm tackles. This sets him apart from other, less-jacked return men. Check out the upper-body workout that helped Hester dethrone a legend and become the greatest return man of all time.
