We all know NFL star running back Adrian Peterson is a beast, but this is just too crazy. Peterson runs the first mile at 6 mph followed by another mile at 9 mph. Then, without stopping, he runs five more miles while alternating his speed on every lap around the track, one lap at 5-6.5 mph and then a lap at 12 mph.
This is the kind of training you do if you’re a little nuts.
- 1 mile at 6 mph
- 1 mile at 9 mph
- 1 lap at 5-6.5 mph
- 1 lap at 12 mph
- repeat the laps 20 times
This is why he’s a monster on the field. Age hasn’t slowed him down one bit.
7 mile run routine, First mile speed of 6, second mile ran at 9 and for the next 5 miles alternate lap speed 5.0-6.5 for 1 then speed at 12 for 1 repeat for a total of 20 Laps. 🙏🏾 and ask for strength before starting! It helped me fight through. pic.twitter.com/Mzc11B2U8z

Someone needs to give him another shot at carrying the ball 20 times a game. Adrian is currently a free agent There are very few running backs who get better as the game goes on. This treadmill routine is probably the reason why.
