Why Christian McCaffrey Is Training Like a Track Athlete This Offseason

Christian McCaffrey plays for the Carolina Panthers and is one of the fastest running backs in the NFL. This year, he hopes to be even faster. He is training with his former high school track coach. McCaffrey states that running is his job, and working with his track coach is making him faster and stronger. He now focuses on shorter training sessions and more rest between gym activities. This allows him to increase his muscle mass specific force, meaning he gets optimal use of his muscles while remaining at is best weight. He is also super diligent with his sleep schedule, muscles massages and his nutrition.

Key Takeaways:

  • McCaffrey primary trainer for both running and weights is track coach Brian Kula of Kula Sports Performance.
  • Spending too much time on training can sometimes have a counterproductive effect on explosive muscle strength.
  • McCaffrey has started leaving himself longer stretches of rest time during his workouts, and emphasizing intensity over volume.

“He clocked a 4.48 40-Yard Dash at the NFL Combine and is known as one of the fastest backs in the league”
