Personal Trainer

Many experts have been thrilled by the work discipline James has developed since young age. Being able to work twice a day despite being only 13 is a gift that James’s parents have been able to pass to their son, and which they don’t need to regret despite James’s decision on abandoning his studies, so he chases his football dream.

Over the years, James has developed into a world class footballer, very athletic with a high potential to become the next world superstar. We can see the hours of sweat in his versatile game, his scoring skills and tremendous ball handling technique.

His athletic potential is a product of a lot of strength and agility and speed training. Rodriguez does a specific weight lifting routine mostly targeting his complete body through a combination of exercises such as deadlifts, squats, Olympic lifts which target multiple muscle groups at the same time. Being able to be a part of a world-class team often is very beneficial, but not because of the salary of the footballer, but because of the professionalism of the trainers, their educational background and the level of expertise they possess which eventually results in great workouts and huge athletic/skill improvement.

In the continuation of this post, we will like to share two videos of how Rodriguez exercises.
