What does your strength-training regimen look like? How often are you in the gym, and what are you doing in there?

In the off-season I do a lot of powerlifting. Especially coming out of the season. I’m working out four days a week and I use one day as a recovery day. On Wednesday I get a massage, deep tissue, just to work everything out. But I do a lot of powerlifting and a lot of explosions and a lot of CrossFitnow. A lot of guys are getting into that. So that’s really how my routine goes. The CrossFit was very new to me, but one thing I learned about it was it was a change of pace. So when I stopped doing my powerlifting, I went into CrossFit, and CrossFit, obviously, was different because you’re just non-stop. You keep going and it wasn’t as long as my powerlifting sessions were, but it did get me in great shape.
