Fighting off blocks has a lot more to do with your upper body and core strength than it does with lower body strength.
Holding your ground or moving guys backwards has more to do with your leg.
Have someone you know try to pass block you or latch on to you and you try to get pass them. You don't have to go full speed or anything..just walk...
See how much you use your arms trying to get free and the different motions you put your arms through. Fighting off blocks takes a lot of strength in your arms.
And the shorter your arms are, the more upper body strength you need to get people off of you.
