Carlin Isles gym footage shows fascinating speed exercise

The 29-year-old is often uploading footage online of his work in the gym, and what he does to maintain and improve his speed. Most exercises are orientated around explosive power, which is understandable.

However, his most recent video is one of his strangest and niche exercises he has shared to date. Most of his exercises are variations of common moves, but this one is very particular.
