BlogsMJD thinks your cardio has room for improvement
Back in our December/January double issue, we gave you an inside look into Jacksonville Jaguar's running back Maurice Jones-Drew's off-season workout. Since then, the Jags severed ties with the franchise's all-time leading rusher, Fred Taylor, and they're working on locking up MJD with a long-term contract. So, with some time to kill, the young running back is trying to enjoy what's left of his vacation. Also, he's apparently doing the most awesome cardio ever.
I mean, maybe there's a more awesome kind of cardio, like "running the rock," which UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn showcased before his fight with GSP earlier this year. Penn free-drove to the bottom of a body of water, grabbed a heavy rock, and ran, under water, as long as he could before returning to the surface to take a few deep breaths. "True anaerobic," he said on the show, which is right. The body doesn't take in oxygen, so it learns to use the oxygen in the body in a more efficient way.
We never realized our stationary bike cardio was so lame, but, well. Here we are.
