Work Out Like a Giant With Michael Strahan

Get bigger, faster, and stronger by following, set-by-set, with former New York Giant Michael Strahan.

Strahan trains five days a week with a whole-body circuit that incorporates vertical and horizontal push and pull movements, a mix of hip- and knee- dominant exercises, rotational movements, and core work. “My philosophy is making sure our workouts are functional, so that Michael doesn’t throw out his back picking up a grocery bag,” says Latreal Mitchell, Strahan’s trainer. “We train in all planes of motion and keep it challenging.” Here’s a typical week:

MONDAY

JUMP SQUAT 4 sets x 5 reps
SINGLE-LEG SQUAT 4 sets x 10 reps
