Footballers are definitely amongst the biggest and most popular athletes on the planet.
To be a professional footballer requires much more than just talent.
They must undergo heavy training sessions to keep their body in shape in order to adapt the modern game.
And one of the most consistent players in the Premier League for the last seven or eight years has been Chelsea and England defender Gary Cahill.
Yet the defender in speaking to coachmag.co.uk about the training he does in preparation for games revealed the players who are the strongest in most team gyms.
Surprsingly, the former Bolton Wanderers man revealed that the goalkeepers are the ones who impress the most.
“The keepers dominate the gym. They’re powerhouses. Massive!” Cahill told Coach magazine.
“In the gym I’m usually doing a lot of core work and upper-body work. They’re the main things for my position. I do some leg work but not as much because of the workload we do in training.
“For my core I do sit-ups and planks and I use the weighted cable machine that helps to work your trunk. For upper-body work I do bench presses, overhead presses, biceps curls and a lot of dips.” //Actuantes//
