Goal: Bulking Up
Running backs rely on their speed and agility
to elude their defenders and outrun them in the open field. However, given that running backs
can't always avoid the defense, they must be strong enough to drop their shoulders and drive through their defender to gain those valuable yards.
By getting stronger and more powerful, running backs can break tackles and eke out those extra yards.
