Ever wonder what makes top athletes so great? It's rooted in their training regimen - discipline, focus, intensity, and doing it all consistently. Troy Polamalu, Pittsburgh Steelers safety has a pretty impressive training program. He takes his fitness seriously. When you look at his workout it's not just a sexy, wow-let-me-try-that-at-the gym workout. It's full of functional and sports specific movements that make his football game better than many athletes.
Whether you plan on playing football, are a fan or not; take the time and hear what Troy says about his workout. Of course they're challenging, grueling, and intense.
