Steve Weatherford Trains for the Super Bowl

The Giants punter shares his hardcore Super Bowl-winning training regimen.

Steve Weatherford's Super Bowl Training Regimen

How it Works:

Weatherford trains five days per week, taking Wednesdays and Sundays as either active rest or off days. He’ll start each workout day with dynamic flexibility. This involves a series of jumps, skips, and high kicks designed to raise his core temperature andhead off injury. After that, it’s 15 minutes of static stretching, which he does after weight training, followed by a diff erent type of cardio each day. “I spend the off -season in San Diego,” he says. “There are great geographical formations in the hill country for me to just go out and run.”
