He was hesitant to get into it after all the ruckus that was raised when he previously mentioned that his offseason workout regimen consisted of playing basketball and running, but appearing on the NFL Network’s NFL AM program Wednesday, Stevie Johnson elaborated on just how he’s changed things up with his offseason training this winter.
“I think every player knows their body,” he said. “I’m scared to even answer the question now. Ever since high school I never really lifted weights, it was playing basketball and doing cardio running. That’s how I would beat DBs by doing basketball moves. I never missed a game or anything. But with this new coach coming in, I’ve had 1,000 yards, 1,000 yards and 1,000 yards, but how come I’m not getting 1,200 or 13? So let me do this full workout, this full NFL regimen. So I came out here and I’m working and I’m feeling good right now.”
Johnson is working with Travelle Gaines at Athletic Gaines, which also has San Diego RB Ryan Mathews, Seattle RB Marshawn Lynch, San Francisco S Dashon Goldson as clients.
“It’s crazy doing the things that we do,” he said. “It’s nothing that’s going to kill you, but it’s mostly core and stability and getting your legs stronger. I’m going there after this to get it in again.”
The new offseason regimen has Johnson excited about how ready he’ll be for Buffalo’s offseason conditioning program, which begins next month.
“I go back in April and I’ll be around and doing what coach (Marrone) tells me to,” he said. “I’m all in.”
