3. Russell Wilson
The Seattle Seahawks quarterback and former Men’s Fitness cover star is obsessive when it comes to working out and keeping his body in top shape. Since he’s “just” 5’11”, Wilson has to make up for his (relative) lack of size with extra work in the gym and on the field. Wilson’s 215-lb frame is packed with muscle—as shown in these 20 badass workout posts on his Instagram page—and he’s proven to be one of the most dangerous dual-threat quarterbacks in the league due to his running speed and agility. Wilson’s workout routine, which he detailed for Men’s Fitness, combines a wide range of methods and exercises, including medicine ball tosses, front squats, cable curls, the bench press, Romanian deadlifts, triceps extensions, dumbbell stepups, row workouts, single-leg squats, band workouts, and stability moves.
“Lunges are really big for me in terms of leg strength and glute strength,” Wilson told Men’s Fitness during the 2016 NFL season. “Squats, agility work, core stability, and jumping are key things as well. I do shoulder exercises constantly, and keep focus on my core strength.”
