Patrick Mahomes (born September 17, 1995) is an American football quarterback in the National Football League (NFL).
According to the bleacher report, GQ got a breakdown of Mahomes’ routine during the coronavirus pandemic. Here it is, from 2020:
“He’s up at 7 a.m., often with no alarm. He flips on TV, usually ESPN—where occasionally he’ll find that he’s the topic of discussion—drinks his coffee, then drinks a pre-workout supplement concoction, in that order. At 9 a.m., a workout: an hour for arms, an hour-and-a-half for legs. Then he eats lunch, after which some days he has a virtual meeting with teammates and coaches or he plays video games. Only in this narrow noon-to-2 p.m. window, though. He doesn’t ‘want to get lost in playing video games all day.’ During the season he swears them off.
“He’s become an avid golfer, and 3 p.m. is tee time, if COVID-19 restrictions allow him to play. If not, that’s when he hits the Peloton, using the screen name 2 p.m., a nod to his fascination with time and a reference to his full name, Patrick Mahomes II. He’s as fierce on a stationary bike as he is on the field. ‘I’m so damn competitive that I kill myself,’ he tells me. ‘I see the leaderboard, and I see that, like, Brian from North Carolina is catching me, and I’m like, ‘There’s no way.” Better, he’s found, to ride alone, where he opts for 30-minute scenic routes, riding to sunsets. By 5 p.m. he’s hanging out with Brittany and their two dogs. Then dinner and TV. Bedtime is 9:30, 10 at the latest.”
Due to the position he plays, Mahomes is known to concentrate more on his shoulders and arms when it comes to working out. This is because the 2019 MVP needs his arms and shoulders to be strong so that he can throw the football. Pat had this to say on his shoulder and arms training in an interview,
“Shoulder care is definitely something I’m doing more than I used to…My trainer, Bobby Stroupe, takes me through a routine where my shoulder is in awkward positions while gaining strength. I throw from so many awkward positions on the field, so it’s an important part of my routine.”
In order to perform, Patrick Mahomes’ diet consists of four to five meals per day, including breakfast, lunch, and spread out dinners. He has admitted to enjoying beer and chicken wings after his Super Bowl win, and his favorite sandwich is from a Kansas City barbecue joint with brisket, barbecue sauce, and onion rings. He also loves putting ketchup on many of his meals — so much so that he has officially started working with Hunt’s Best Ever Ketchup.
While he loves to eat, Mahomes has mentioned that he has started to hone in more closely on his nutrition. This includes eliminating fast food and emphasizing healthy foods like chicken and salmon. Luckily, he has an advocate and ally in his fiancée Brittany Matthews, who helps him meet his goals. In fact, Matthews is a former professional soccer player herself, as well as Certified Personal Trainer with her own business. Not a bad partner for someone who has made sports their profession.
Mahomes beat Post Malone at beer pong so badly the singer got a tattoo of the quarterback’s signature.
“He has a tattoo artist literally in the room,” Mahomes told GQ in a 2020 interview. “I’m like, ‘Dude, you do not actually have to get a tattoo of our autographs.'”
