First TV Show
Other than football matches itself, Godin hasn’t showed up in any other TV show.
The Uruguayan star is a decent worker, not one of the hardest, but still he keeps his body in shape. He is not a fan of weight lifting exercises and that’s why most of his workouts are done by using his body weight as a resistance. Godin does a lot of conditioning training such as high-intensity sprinting and sand dunes training during the off-season.
Despite the fact that he is not very muscular, his core strength can be seen through his ability to absorb a contact by a taller and a much stronger opponent.
The muscles of the core are a proven way to improve the athletic performance of a player. Therefore, we give you couple of exercise videos with which you can combine and make your own core workout.
Before you go and check the videos, we want you to make sure that you know the complete core anatomy. There are numerous abdominal muscles including obliques, trapezius, gluteus maximus and latissimus dorsi.
