Take a Look at Patrick Mahomes’ Intense Workout Hearst Owned

THE KANSAS CITY Chiefs may have won the 2024 Super Bowl, but Patrick Mahomes is not resting on his laurels. The NFL quarterback is spending the offseason working out with his longtime trainer Bobby Stroupe, C.S.C.S., and refocusing his training regimen around a new set of specific goals.

A new Instagram post from Stroupe showcases Mahomes’ current objectives—”pattern stability,” “force absorption,” and “force transmission”—and shows the QB in action in a montage of fast-paced, high-intensity drills that challenge his strength, speed, power, responsiveness, and control.

Mahomes’ quickness, agility, and overall athleticism in this highlight reel should also serve as a reminder that building an athletic, durable body is about more than six-pack abs and a comic-book-cut torso. Just before the Super Bowl, there was plenty of chatter that Mahomes had a “dad bod”. But those who know fitness know you can never judge an athlete by how they look. Instead, you judge them by how fluidly and easily they move. And in many ways, whether you’re a legendary QB or an average guy, your ability to move just may be a better predictor of longevity than the way your body looks.

In Stroupe’s video, Mahomes works on the absorption and transmission of force with a series of medicine ball exercises, redirecting energy by catching and then slamming the ball to the ground. He also demonstrates his core power and explosiveness in a set of cable push-pulls, and his ability to quickly react (and twist his torso) with a drill which involves laying on his back, then springing up and into a full sprint.

On top of all that, Mahomes displays classic strength, too, pulling what appears to be over 300 pounds in a trap bar deadlift, and crushing a heavy lateral sled pull.

The entire session is way more sport-specific than your average gym workout, with each of these exercises designed to hone Mahomes’ abilities and movements on the field.

“Muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascial structures respond specifically to certain training modalities,” Stroupe explains. “Not every exercise or intent optimizes each tissue. We are not muscle coaches. Target tissues.”
