So How Hard Do NFL Football Players Workout In The Offseason

Posted by Scratch

I have been harsh on Le’Veon Bell the past few years, but that can be forgiven right? I am a Steelers fan after all. Le’Veon rightly brought a lot of ridicule upon himself by routinely starting the season late or as he has done the past season, skipping it entirely. To be fair, the following video posted on YouTube in 2016 shows just what Bell will do to stay in shape—when properly motivated.

Rumors were rampant that during his ill-fated to some, but heroic to others, holdout in which he skipped the entire season, that Bell had ballooned up too a very heavy weight. However, the following recent picture from the Jets OTA sessions shows that the rumor was more bloated than Bell. He looks fit and ready to get pummeled behind a poor offensive line.

Must we all workout like an NFL athlete?

The answer is no. I get out of breath watching these videos. Still, it is often not talked about, at least compared to the all negative stuff that dominates the NFL world, the amazing workout routines that NFL football players put themselves through to be the best. Being our best, is what The Football Fan’s Diet is all about. Our goal is to try to emulate that excellence in our every day merely mortal lives, between beers and barbecues of course.
