🚨 @ab is here!!! And making it look way too easy🚨⤵️#theextra10 • 🏈As a receiver Antonio Brown regularly finds himself in tight coverage. Often to make a catch he will have to use one arm to fend off an opponent while the other one makes the actual catch. Or in situations where he’s already made the catch, he will have to use one arm to create separation from an opponent to gain additional yards. This type of action is the infamous stiff arm • 🏋🏻♂️This particular exercise gets him comfortable with one arm being the stiff arm, while simultaneously making a catch with his free arm. On top of this, the Swiss ball creates a draining stability challenge which trains him to stay focused when fatigued • ✅A summary of all the benefits includes the following: • 1️⃣Improved hand-eye coordination • 2️⃣Improved core strength • 3️⃣Improved reflexes • 4️⃣Improved neuromuscular connection • 5️⃣Improved shoulder stability and strength •
His sons appear to have the hang of the drill and AB is heard in the background encouraging the young athletes.
The trainer captions the video explaining why this particular workout is effective for a player like Brown saying, "this particular exercise gets him comfortable with one arm being the stiff arm, while simultaneously making a catch with his free arm. On top of this, the Swiss ball creates a draining stability challenge which trains him to stay focused when fatigued."
Brown, who has four children (Autonomy, Antanyiah, Antonio Jr. and Ali Brown), is entering his first NFL season apart from the Steelers. Brown had 1,297 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns in 15 games last year in Pittsburgh.
