Larry Fitzgerald Workouts



Larry Fitzgerald Workouts

  

 

Larry Fitzgerald has an explosive workout routine that provides him with incredible speed, agility, and not to mention, a muscular body that sports a ripped six pack. Fitzgerald has a tremendous work ethic and at 6'3" and 220 lbs., this big wide receiver will be a household name for years to come.

Fitzgerald led the Arizona Cardinals to a Super Bowl and within a couple of minutes of earning something that every football player dreams of: a ring. Although him and his teammates fell short due to the miraculous comeback by Santonio Holmes, Fitzgerald continues to be an elite receiver in the league. It is simply because of his workouts that he is able to be faster than shutdown corners and strong enough to take blows from hard-hitting safeties.

Fitzgerald does a lot of different workouts to keep his body guessing but a lot of his workouts focus on his core and increasing speed and agility. Fitzgerald has been noted to like to do the following exercises in his workouts, according to Men's Fitness:

 


These explosive box jumps are great for Fitzgerald's vertical and
explosion.

Explosive Box Jumps- Six sets of three reps, resting 60 seconds between sets.

Hurdle Drills- Perform six sets.

Chute Drill- Elastic bands bounding ankles- 30 feet- 8 Reps

Medicine Ball Situps- 3 sets of 15 reps

Ab Wheel Rollout- 3 sets of 20 reps

Plyo Pushups on Plates- 3 sets of 20.

Power Snatch- 3 sets of five reps

 

Fitzgerald employs a combination of low rep explosive movements that stay within the 3-8 rep range. This really helps him improve his 40 time and his explosive ability to jump for the ball and create separation from the defender. Having a quick first step in football is essential and this kind of training makes him the best in the league at it. He also does high reps, mainly for his abdominals, to make sure he has a very well balanced physique. Placing emphasis on your core is esential for sports. If you want to be a good athlete, you need to have balance and be strong when taking physical impact. This stems from your core. 

Fitzgerald also does 45 minutes of spin classes as his cardio exercise of choice. He does this because it's less impact on his knees and joints and running, however, he does his fair share of sprints as well as indicated below.

Fitzgerald's specific workout routine looks like the following and is beastly. This is a very well balanced routine that mainly focuses on his leg power and explosiveness. He also makes sure that he's in as good cardiovascular shape as anyone in the league through his stringent and difficult cardio routines. Have you ever done 14 200 yard sprints before? Now, have you done a full weight training routine after that? Yah, keeping up with an NFL Pro sure ain't easy:


Monday

Cardio Routine:


Leg Stretching-
groin, hamstring, and leg stretching to prevent injuries

10 gassers (sprints horizontally across the field and back 4 times)


Weight Training Routine:

Saturday, Sunday: Off


 

Larry Fitzgerald also follows a strict diet plan to make sure his body gets all of the nutrition required, yet maintain its lean muscle mass without gaining fat. He needs to be explosive and fast, and that requires being shredded. His meal plan looks like the following:

 

Breakfast: 2 Egg Omelet, Plain Bagel, Fruit, Orange Juice, Vitamins
Post-Morning Workout: Myoplex shake
Lunch: Bread and Pasta with Grilled Chicken
Dinner:
Steak or Shrimp

 

Sometimes he indulges in some Popeyes’ spicy chicken for dinner as he claims it as his “biggest weakness”. Even though eating that may not be the best for a person's general health and six pack abs, Fitzgerald is certainly capable of burning thousands of calories a day on the football field.

This is how Fitzgerald stays so lean. He eats frequent meals and makes sure that his diet revolves around finding lean protein sources. Too many carbs and fat can be detrimental to your goals, causing you to gain all kinds of body fat. Fitzgerald understands how to fuel his body rather than look for taste.
