27-year-old Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is 6-foot-3, 247 pounds, with sprinter’s speed.
He has rumbled for 3,567 yards rushing and 33 touchdowns over the past two seasons.
He became the eighth back in NFL history to rush for over 2,000 yards in a season in 2020.
He has not one, but two runs for touchdown of over 90 yards.
He is the only player in NFL history with at least 180 rushing yards in three consecutive games.
He is also the only player to ever have 2,000 yard rushing seasons in high school, college, and the NFL.
In other words, he is a bad, bad man when it comes to playing the game of football.
GET. OFF. ME. SON. @KingHenry_2

So, as if all of that wasn’t scary enough for NFL defenders (especially those little guys in the defensive backfield), then the offseason workout videos of King Henry that keep sprouting up on the internet will probably go the trick.
“4th Year in and WE WORKING even HARDER!! Never Satisfied!!! 👑 ITS JUST WORK!!!” wrote NBA player turned trainer Melvin Sanders.
Then there is this…
Oh, and this, Henry’s latest mind-blowing feat of strength…
This is ridiculous.

Is it any wonder Derrick Henry has the ability to stiff-arm tiny DBs to the moon?
Needless to say, folks on social media were more than a little impressed with Henry’s insane training regimen.

This actually answers a lot of my Derrick Henry questions, tbh— The Pasquale Trolley (@patricksaxton) May 20, 2021
“I couldn’t really speak on any other running backs (and what they do),” Henry told the media last August. “I was just doing what I do – me training, staying in shape, getting my body stronger and getting prepared for camp. It’s what I do every offseason.”
Gym’s closed, so @KingHenry_2 is putting in work in the parking lot 😤

“I really do drills (for) conditioning, to open up my lungs and make sure I am in shape,” Henry added. “That is really the focal point, to make sure my body is in shape. … I really looked to do some hill work, tried to find a good hill, a steep hill, and I found them when I was training in Dallas. I just wanted to get some hill work and see how in condition I was (in) and it was really some good work. … I liked it and I tried to do as much as I could when I had the time.”

“I love working out — I love working in general,” said Henry. “That’s just me being me.”
