Why Christian McCaffrey Is Training Like a Track Athlete This Offseason
As a running back with Carolina Panthers, Christian McCaffrey is a well-known name in the NFL. Last year, he amassed a total of 326 runs and he is considered to be one of the fastest players at his position. That does not mean he is happy with his current speed, and he always strives for more. In between two seasons, his training regime looks much like the one of the track runner. In fact, Christian says he considers his position to be that of a sprinter.

- “I feel the best I’ve felt in my whole life in terms of being in good physical condition, speed, strength, all that,” McCaffrey says.
