The Rams running back came into the league with sky high expectations and he’s delivered for Los Angeles, giving the team a star to build around. Gurley’s bruising running style is punishing for opposing defenses, and that’s because he works hard in the gym to get strong for the season. This offseason, Gurley used medicine ball workouts, sand speed training, resistance drills, and hex bar deadlifts to stay in shape.
Gurley spoke with Men’s Fitness and detailed his favorite training moves, including barbell back squats, deadlifts, hamstring curls, glute raises, box jumps, and power cleans.
“My favorite exercises are squats and my least favorite to do is upper-body stuff,” Gurley told Men’s Fitness. “I’m always squatting when I work out. I try and switch it up every week, but I do a lot of quad exercises, leg extensions, deadlifts, and hamstring curls to help build muscle, my core, and gain stamina. Lower body, always do lower body—never skip a leg day."
