Patrick Mahomes’ workout routine as Chiefs star prepares for Super Bowl

Patrick Mahomes ’ performance coach has shared the gruelling workout that the Kansas City Chiefs star does to prepare for greatness.

Mahomes is preparing for his second Super Bowl having picked up his first ring by beating the San Francisco 49ers last year.

On Sunday, the Chiefs take on Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Super Bowl 55, in Tampa.

Mahomes is set to be one of the stars of the show having picked up the Super Bowl MVP 12 months ago.

Though it doesn’t come easy for the 25-year-old, who ensures he still puts in the hard yards on the practise field and in the gym.

Bobby Stroupe has trained Mahomes since the quarterback was in the fourth grade, and explained why the Chiefs star works out like he does.

“Patrick’s training goals are simple – win the Super Bowl,” Stroupe told Men’s Health.

“In order to do that, priority No. 1 is to be resilient, he’s got to stay healthy.

“He does 3D power implementation with med balls, track work, and strength training.

“Medicine ball training is so important for Patrick because he likes to produce power from multiple different angles, in the way he plays the quarterback position.

“Track work, sprinting, running drills are incredibly important for any type of thrower or quarterback for a couple of reason. One, it primes what we call the spinal engine, and two, it helps with scapular range emotion.

“Weight room exercises are important because they help us with resilience. The stronger an athlete is, the more they conduct power and the more they conduct speed.”
