Don’t count out Ryan Howard just yet.
The former National League MVP may be 37 years old and unemployed for the first time in his major-league career, but he’s not ready to walk away either.
That was evidenced in a new video posted by Whistle Sports titled ‘No Days Off.’ The video takes us behind the scenes in Howard’s rigorous offseason training, which his training partner says is aimed at creating “a superhuman that just happens to play baseball.”
That sounds like some pretty serious business. And as you’ll see in the video below, it most certainly is.
It’s noted that Howard is up by 6:30 every morning getting in his first hitting session of around 150 swings. Thus begins another day filled with baseball and non-baseball activities that Howard hopes will bring more strength, mobility and durability to his game.
Obviously, at 37, it’s an uphill battle. That’s just the nature of life, but the willingness to work hard is the surest way to climb that hill and remain in peak condition.Read More »from Ryan Howard training to become 'superhuman that happens to play baseball'
