Video: J.J. Watt has a ridiculous post workout routine

Former Wisconsin star and current Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is without question one of the most intimidating Big Ten players in recent memory. But this post-workout video, posted by Watt on his Instagram account, takes the whole “intimidation factor” to another new level.

Watt is shown lifting and flipping a 1,000 pound tire across what looks like a practice field. According to his post, Watt did this a total of 30 times. I’m not sure what’s more ridiculous, the fact that he is able to lift and flip a 1,000 pound tire 30 times, or the fact that this wasn’t even his main workout… It was his post-workout.

Watch the video here:

Post-Workout. 30 Reps. 1,000 pound tire.

Of course, this has to raise the question: If this is Watt’s post-workout routine, what could his regular workout possibly consist of? We already know the man can skate and shoot a hockey puck.

These tires generally weight only about 500 pounds – they are fairly common in larger workout facilities and are not as hard to flip as you would think since the floor does half of the work.

Watt is a great player, but I don’t find anything about this video as out of this world. No way that tire is 1000 lbs for #1, and #2 actual weight benching (depending on the height of the weight) can be seen as more tedious than this.
