Q&A With J.J. Watt, The NFL's Most Dangerous Man

Men's Fitness caught up with the star about diet, training, being a role model, and more.

Any sports fan knows the name J.J. Watt. For the past four years, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year has incited fear in opposing offenses, punished quarterbacks, and help transform the Texans defense into one of the best units in the league. Regardless of how many linemen match up against him, Watt always seems to find the quarterback. He plays with heart on every snap and, on top of all of that, he still maintains a modest, levelheaded attitude.

Even though Watt has an incredibly busy schedule, he always seems to find time to help the community. He frequently makes guest appearances to the Houston YMCA and is a strong force in the greater Houston area. In fact, Watt along with Gatorade, headed to the YMCA today to for the Gatorade Beat the Heat program to surprise a bunch of young athletes. Rather than phoning it in, Watt went above and beyond what was expected of him. He sang happy birthday to a camper and he even “nae-nae'd.”

Just before he busted out those moves, we spoke with Watt.
