Fire your trainer. 135lb deadlifts? Unless you're doing 50 reps that's not doing shiat. His trainer has him running around on bosu non-sense instead of pulling and pushing a farking heavy sled. Hope all those fast-twitch calf muscles help you with your goal of losing weight (they won't). He should be lifting heavy for medium reps, fixing his farking diet, and training for explosiveness and speed. Not this mickey-mouse bullshiat.

Being out of shape isn't this guy's biggest problem, his biggest hurdle to NFL success is that he's fu*king stupid. Ain't no changing that.

He'll never get that ripped, sculpted body of a Pro-Bowl caliber QB

Magorn: you'll never lose weight working out. period.  Science has proved it an my anecdotal expeirence backs it up AFAIC.   I was once a 330lb gym rat who worked out every single day, including weekends and holidays, for at least an hour a day of cardio and weights, and while I was a 330lb lummox who could run a few miles and do a fair number of pull-ups, I was still 330.(and eventually climbed to 370) .  Eating lo-carb OTOH?  lost weight like a motherfarker.  Workouts were twice a week or less but dropped 100lbs in just under 3 months  (ten years later doing it again but this time its only 45 lbs in the last almost 4 months but I started at 270 this time)

I don't know about "science has proved it," and if you want to trade anecdotes, I spent 5 months last summer training for an Ironman (11-18 hours per week of workouts). Lost 15% of my body weight (215 -> 180) when it was all said and done, and that was without any significant change in diet. If anything, I probably snacked more than normal.

Weight training and mild cardio probably won't help you lose weight, since any fat loss is going to be offset by muscle gain, but a steady diet of 1-2 hour cardio workouts daily will certainly lead to weight loss.

JasonThomasX: Jamarcus Russell is a great player. Get over it!!

A great player of what is the question, because it's not football.

Jesus wept. I'm 47. Based on that workout video, I can do more than he can. That just shouldn't be. He was a #1 NFL draft pick. I'm nobody. Dude's not trying. Which is why he is where he is in the first place, I suppose. So add "profoundly learning disabled" to his list of drawbacks as a QB prospect.

This is a joke right? I'm pretty sure that was just viral advertising for that gym and had nothing to do with Russell, who I'm not sure is the best poster boy for your athletic training prowess.

The Bears released a gallery of gym pictures the other day. I don't know if it was Roberto Garza benching 135lb, or a bearded Jay Cutler doing lunges with 95lb, but something about them made me think that the players aren't taking organized workouts very seriously yet.
