Former NFL wide receiver and MLB draftee Javon Walker has taken his talents to the fitness industry. To stay ripped, the new physique pro sticks to a lot of conditioning work that made him a 2004 Pro Bowl pick: sprints, stadium steps, agility ladder drills, and plyometrics. In the gym, however, Walker has shifted the focus away from power development to pure aesthetics.
“In football, we’d work total-body, explosive movements, but now it’s about developing body parts using certain angles,” he says. Ultimately, success in football and in the physique division carry similar demands. “Waking up on time, running routes properly, and being accountable—that transitions to men’s physique because of the dedication you need to train and diet.”
