New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle teamed up with Promax Nutrition protein bars to host a workout with Henry Hynsoki and Spencer Paysinger at NYSC in Mid-town earlier this month. Some members of the media had a chance to work out with Antrel and the rest of the crew.
I was able to ask Antrel a few questions on the workout with Promax Nutrition and his time in the NFL.
Art Eddy: You worked with Promax Nutrition bars for an extreme workout. Tell me a bit about the event?
Antrel Rolle: The event was to show some of the workouts that we do on a day to day basis. We did some speed, agility, and strength drills. Just a little preview but we definitely got them to break a sweat. Doing these workouts you are burning off energy, so Promax Nutrition protein bars are perfect to keep your energy levels up throughout our long days of practice.
AE: Were the exercises that you guys did similar to your own workouts to get ready for the NFL season?
AR: Definitely. These are some of the warm-ups and drills we do at the facility and even now in the offseason.
AR: In the moment everything was happening so fast that it took me a few days to realize what had just happened. One of the best memories I will have.
AE: Your position is defensive back. In a league that has a major focus on passing the ball what are some of the major things that you look to focus on as you prepare week in and week out?
AR: I study my tapes and learn the ways of the receivers. I like to know how my opponents think so I can prepare for them. I constantly work on my speed and receiving as well.
AE: Is there a player that challenges you the most on the field?
AR: The guy who challenges me most on the field is LeSean McCoy. He is the hardest guy to tackle in the open field of play.
AE: Last season you had a great season with six interceptions and two sacks. What type of goals do you set for yourself before each season starts?
AR: I like to take things one game at a time. The ultimate goal is to get to and win the Super Bowl of course, but I have daily goals and weekly goals that I set for myself throughout the season. Gotta push through and be better than the day before.
