We’ve reported on a lot of different workout regimens over the years. And every so often we come across one that is, how shall I put it, a little outside the box.
The most unusual workouts we’ve seen in the past involved NFL running back and athletic freak of nature Alvin Kamara.
The video of Kamara performing a stability exercise drill that he posted back in April is so insane that even left guys like LaDainian Tomlinson and Aqib Talib gobsmacked.
Now, over the weekend, new Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown took some time out of his busy schedule of blasting Madden NFL 20 game producers and buying a quarter of a million dollars worth of jewelry to post a video of himself prepping for the upcoming NFL season with what can only be called a very different kind of workout… catching bricks.
“The product is coming September just wait on it……….. #raidernation,” Brown captioned the video on Instagram.
While impressive, I guess, aren’t there easier, more effective ways to increase hand strength and reflexes than this? Then again, those other exercises probably don’t look as nearly as impressive on social media.
Eh, what do I know? Cleveland Browns safety Damarious Randall seemed impressed, commenting, “That’s tough.”
So were fellow Raiders wideout Keon Hatcher, Bengals corner Dre Kirkpatrick, linebacker Chandler Jones, NBA star Boogie Cousins, former NBA point guard Nate Robinson, former NFL wide receiver Torry Holt, and NHL defenseman P.K. Subban were also impressed… most of them with the fact that AB was performing this drill while wearing ridiculously expensive Versace loafers… as one does.
Others? Not so much.
