Goal: Strength Endurance
Strength is important for any football player. Wide receivers
rely on their strength to be able to power through the frequent and heavy doses of contact. However, being stronger than your opponent is only half the battle. Successful wide receivers must also be able to maintain that strength throughout all four quarters. To go hard when the game is on the line, football players must spend time in the weight room increasing their strength endurance.
