Aaron Rodgers takes us through his workout and diet routine

Since his promotion to starter in 2008, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has established himself as arguably one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever step onto a football field. He led the Wisconsin-based franchise to the Super Bowl XLV title in 2011. In 190 NFL starts, Rodgers boasts a 126−63−1 record.

He has thrown for 51,000+ yards with 400+ passing TDs against just 89 interceptions, which is just pure madness. What makes things even better is that the veteran shot-caller has shown no signs of slowing down in recent years. He’s led the Packers to consecutive NFC Conference finals. But what is the secret behind his consistency?

As seen in the above video, the California-born athlete revealed that a strict workout and a balanced diet, followed by a swift recovery process is what helps him put up some impressive numbers on a weekly basis in the NFL.

Aaron Rodgers added that three main areas of focus during training for a quarterback are the back, core, and legs. He further added that he is not that into cryotherapy as a recovery method. Instead, he undergoes deep tissue massages twice a week in addition to a meditative sleep cycle.

With almost a monk-like mentality and self-control, it’s no surprise that A-Rod was crowned 2020 NFL MVP at the age of 37. Coach Matt LaFleur will hope that his main man will return with a vengeance this summer as the Packers prepare for another post-season run in 2021. We can’t wait to see what Rodgers has in store for us this year!
