Muscle & Fitness magazine which highlighted football player Terrell Owens. I have only recently started to watch football and I know TO has quite a reputation, so whether you are a fan or not, there is no denying that Terrell Owens has one of the best physiques in the NFL. His workouts are intense on-season and off-season.
- 34 years of age
- 6’3″ tall
- 225 pounds
- 3% – 4% body fat
All about functional exercises
One of the main things I got from the story is that every workout Terrell does relates to his work on the football field. He performs exercises which mimic blocking techniques as well as increasing his endurance for the amount of running he has to do.
How Terrell trains
During football season Terrell doesn’t hit the weights as hard as he does in the off-season. He does utilize the use of resistance bands quite often which he uses for speed and core training. I have always been a fan of resistance bands because they are easy to use, easy on the joints, versatile, and can be taken anywhere. Terrell also uses them to maintain his strength during football season. He works out between 2 -3 times per week during the season.
Off-season is another story. Terrell trains more with actual weights and his workouts are intense. Between sets he even jumps rope. If you have ever done sets of anything you know getting the break in between is much needed so jumping rope as well is a lot for most people to handle. He trains 4 – 5 times per week during off-season.
Pick up the January issue of Muscle & Fitness magazine to read the entire article and for a sample off-season workout routine that Terrell’s personal trainer designed for him.
