Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been in the news a lot this offseason.
After the playoffs, Wilson took a well-earned vacation with Ciara. He’s been in more ads for Alaska Airlines as their Chief Football Officer. He even surprised 15,000 kids at Key Arena in April. And earlier this month, Wilson and Ciara tied the knot at a castle in the U.K.
But don’t let any of that fool you. He’s been doing work.
Photos and videos posted to Wilson’s Instagram this week proved just that.
Clearly Wilson has not been neglecting his body or his craft this summer.
For comparison, here’s a photo Wilson posted in June:
Earlier this offseason, Wilson’s trainer Ryan Flaherty told ESPN that the QB would be focusing on injury prevention.
“You cannot keep training like you did when you were 21 and 22 years old,” Flaherty told ESPN.com. “A lot of people don’t understand that. But you also can’t do the reverse, which is not train. And so, at that age is where I really start to shift the training to where it’s a majority focus on corrective exercises and fixing imbalances. Injuries occur in the body when there’s imbalances.”
Much of that work has focused on Wilson’s legs and core.
One thing’s for sure. He’s certainly living up to his slogan: #NoTime2Sleep
