The gallery from Saquon Barkley’s “Body Issue” photoshoot hit the internet this morning..The Giants’ first round draft pick discussed that his body “is a temple” and the specific ways he was able to get bigger and stronger, while also taking his speed up a notch.
“I think it was the fact that I was gaining weight, but I was gaining good weight,” Barkley said. “I wasn’t taking creatine and all these other things to get my body bigger. I was eating steaks, potatoes, chicken, and all that stuff. Just working hard. That’s what I think really helped me was getting stronger and keeping to continue to work on flexibility and not just being tight.”
“Being strong but also being athletic and still working on movement. That kind of just changed me, I guess. I got faster, I got more explosive, my first step got quicker, my burst got quicker, and it all just came together.”
‘Barkley’s game changed in the weight room, so unsurprisingly, that where the photoshoot takes place. The gallery highlights Barkley’s body through a series of workouts.
