Strahan trains five days a week with a whole-body circuit that incorporates vertical and horizontal push and pull movements, a mix of hip- and knee- dominant exercises, rotational movements, and core work. “My philosophy is making sure our workouts are functional, so that Michael doesn’t throw out his back picking up a grocery bag,” says Latreal Mitchell, Strahan’s trainer. “We train in all planes of motion and keep it challenging.” Here’s a typical week:


JUMP SQUAT 4 sets x 5 reps
SINGLE-LEG SQUAT 4 sets x 10 reps
DEADLIFT 4 sets x 10 reps
BENCH PRESS 4 sets x 10 reps
DUMBBELL ROW 4 sets x 10 reps
PUSH PRESS 4 sets x 10 reps
ONE-ARM LAT PULLDOWN 4 sets x 10 reps
HIGH-to-LOW WOODCHOP 4 sets x 10 reps
PLANK WALKUP 45-60 seconds
