1)- The first upper body lift WRs should be doing is pull ups. Pull ups are a great exercise to not only build up your back but they will also help with grip strength. So you are working on your catching ability and overall strength with this specific exercise. Every gym exercise you do should translate to the field
2)- The second upper body exercise you should do is push jerk. That is essentially a barbell overhead press but you can jump and almost snatch the weight over your head. Look up “clean and jerk” lifts on youtube and you can find an example of this exercise if you need some guidance. This will help with overall explosiveness and will help you get a quicker twitch in your upper body. Which helps with hand fighting, blocking and shedding defenders
