Former #1 Pick Omar Salgado Prepares with Xplode Athletics

Omar Salgado of the Tigres UANL in Liga MX, and the former 2011 SuperDraft #1 pick in Major League Soccer (MLS), trains with Xplode Athletics as he prepares to re-join the Tigres after transfer.

Director Stephen Wegner on Omar’s Training:
“Omar is a great athlete who dedicated to his craft. He wants to get better and he isn’t afraid to work for it. When Omar first came to see me we both decided to make his speed and agility a focus of training. At 6’4, 207lbs of muscle, I thought it would take some convincing to get Omar to shed some weight, particularly in the upper body. Like a true professional, he got after it and after 5 weeks of training, Omar was 10 lbs lighter, faster, and more explosive. From an injury-reduction standpoint, Omar will be more prepared to deal with the demands of his rigorous sport.”

We hope for big things in 2016 for Omar and look forward to a great season by this young soccer star.
