GQ Article on Christian McCaffrey

Recommended Posts



Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey has mammoth arms, big enough that they have an existence of their own. Like, it's only a matter of time before one of McCaffrey’s biceps reaches out and catches a football. The 22-year-old 2017 first-round draft pick set a record last year for receptions by a running back (107), and this offseason, he’s clearly decided to further build out his physique, as is best exemplified in a recent viral photo (shown above) where his arms look like they’re CGI’d onto the rest of his body.

As Cam Newton’s backfield colleague, McCaffrey has a host of responsibilities that require him to go well beyond focusing on his already-stellar physique. For the sake of optimal performance, the Colorado native has perfected everything from his sleep strategy to what he eats. In fact, after McCaffrey was drafted, he discovered a bunch of food intolerances that needed to be cut out of his diet. On the heels of his new partnership with Ascent Protein, McCaffrey spoke to GQ about his finely-tuned diet, which also occasionally features Cool Ranch Doritos and Oreos.

GQ: When does your day start?

Christian McCaffrey: I wake up around 8 a.m., which isn’t too bad at all. I usually try to get to bed at 10 or 10:30. For a while I tried to see how my recovery was with just eight hours of sleep. And sometimes, that can be fine. But I like getting nine or more hours. I feel like I can wake up on my own if I’ve gotten nine hours. When I do, I feel great and I’m ready to go.

Dude eats high fat diet.  Not recommended if you aren't a workhorse in the gym.

 

High fat help with increase of testosterone as stated by a few studies(http://www.fullrangestrength.com/high-testosterone.html).  It could cause problems later in life, but I think McCaffrey is the type of workhorse gym guy that it should be okay for him and not affect him long term.

If you would read the article you just might find out how he does things on what type of program he goes by and he tell you what he does throughout the day during workouts and playing games. You have no idea of how wrong you are with this false assumption.

Do you ever get annoyed with eating the same thing all the time?

Nah, I love how it makes my diet so simple. Otherwise, I’d get way too in my head about all of it, thinking I have to do this and that. The less I think about meals and everything else, the more I can focus on my sport, and the better I play.

This guy must be a football rat, like #59. That's good for us.

Imagine if Kelvin put in this much work after his rookie year towards his diet and weight regime. Could’ve been an absolute monster

He tried, but he hired this guy as his personal chef.

With all of the press coverage of CMC's arms, the hype is going to encourage some smaller DBs to make a serious business decision and veer away from trying to tackle the guy. :)

Deion Sanders would make that business decision and then admit to it on television years later.
