— A former NFL player is on a mission to help former players make the transition to bodybuilding.
A group of former NFL players, including former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and former Arizona Cardinals receiver Michael Irvin, recently teamed up to create a bodybuilding and nutrition program called The Bully, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
Rodgers, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback, said the program is designed to help the athletes “build a solid foundation for a successful career.”
Rodgers is a huge advocate of the program.
In an interview with ABC News, Rodgers said the purpose of the Bully is to help ex-players reach their goals in the bodybuilding world and to give them an outlet to do so.
“If you go to a bodybuilder, they’re like, ‘How can I build muscle?’
It’s a completely different animal, it’s a whole other world,” Rodgers said.
“I don’t think that’s the right question.
You’ve got to understand what you’re doing.
You’re trying to get your body ripped, and you’re trying not to get fat.
It’s not about weight, it doesn’t matter.
That’s what this is about. “
When you’re in a gym and you see a guy who’s done his whole career doing it, it makes you want to do it again.
That’s what this is about.
It shouldn’t be a choice for them. “
And it’s really hard, but we’re here to help them, because it’s about a lot of things.
It shouldn’t be a choice for them.
They’re going to be happy when they see what we do.”
The program has received praise from former NFLers who are making the transition.
Former Cincinnati Bengals receiver Marvin Jones, who signed a five-year, $80 million contract with the Seattle Seahawks in April, said he was thrilled to see the Bittermen working with former players and ex-workers.
“It’s awesome,” Jones said.
“I’ve got a few friends that are in it, too.
I’m excited for the kids.
They’ve been so supportive of me and my wife.
We’ve been going to these events for the past six months and getting together and having all these kids and my family together.
We just have a lot going on.”
Former Tennessee Titans quarterback Kurt Warner, who also signed a contract with Seattle, said that it was great to see former players getting involved in the program.
“When I heard that they were helping me out with the program, I was excited,” Warner said.
Warner said he wanted to see ex-NFL players help him get better.
“The more I train and the more I do it, the better I get,” Warner added.
“The more you train, the more you do it.
So, if we can help them and support them, it helps me out a lot.”
Rodriguez, a former receiver for the Oakland Raiders, said in a video posted to Instagram that he’s hoping to help his former teammates.
“My hope is that by doing this we can break the $20 million barrier,” Rodriguez said.
Rodrigues plan is to focus on building a foundation to build a foundation of solid fundamentals that will allow players to “build the body that you want.”
Rodriquez, who has been in the weight room since high school, said it’s not a competition.
Rodriques goal is to become a physical therapist and coach.
Rodrikas training schedule is going to vary depending on what he’s looking for.
Rodricks goal is the same: “To build the body I want to build.”
Rodricks video is a video of him training in a body-building gym.
The program is open to people 18 and older.
