- Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields has a minimalist approach to his home practice room.
- Fields told Insider he only plans to have “bands, weight rack and kettlebells.”
- He is one of many sports stars to have less training equipment at home than most professional athletes.
Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields said he only plans to have three types of exercise equipment in the workout room at his new North Side Chicago home.
The 22-year-old first-round pick from Ohio State told Insider he only plans to have resistance bands, a dumbbell rack and kettlebells. The only other piece he would consider is a treadmill, and he said he always wonders if it’s worth hoarding it in or not.
Fields, who was drafted by the Bears with the ninth overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft, signed a four-year, $18,871,957 rookie contract in June to buy his new home. It has teamed up with USAA and ESPN to bring fans a look inside at its “home port”.
Other star athletes like Tom Brady and Russell Westbrook don’t use a lot of workout equipment either.
Fields is one of many star athletes who doesn’t rely heavily on training equipment.
For fellow NFL quarterback Tom Brady, resistance bands are the only workout gear needed for a workout routine, according to a post on TB12 – the health and wellness brand Tom co-founded Brady and his longtime body trainer, Alex Guerrero.
NBA point guard Russell Westbrook doesn’t use weights in his workout routine and only does 25 to 50 push-ups when he wakes up, he said. QG.
Even MLB hitter Yasiel Puig, who is built like a bodybuilder and relies more on pure strength to hit home runs, put on 26 pounds of muscle without using weights. He only used bodyweight workouts and a medicine ball, Dodgers strength and conditioning coach Brandon McDaniel told Men’s Journal.
