Conditioning has become a chief concern for Aaron Rodgers since entering his 30s. That continues this year, as the quarterback says he weighed in under 220 pounds at the start of the Green Bay Packers' offseason program.
"I feel great," Rodgers told ESPN's Rob Demovsky regarding his conditioning. "I put a lot of work in this offseason.
"Being under 220 (pounds) was kind of a goal for me. I hit that goal to start, and now it's continuing to build my body. But I feel really good. My knees feel great. My arm feels really good, and it's fun to be 33 and feel like I'm in the best shape I've been in starting an offseason program."
Rodgers, listed officially at 225 pounds by the Packers, has previously cited Tom Brady as a model for quarterbacks like himself.
"When you've reached the level of success that I have and we have in Green Bay, you continue to have to find ways to reinvent yourself, and adapt, and change, and challenge yourself," Rodgers said on The Sidelines with Evan Daniels Podcast. "And for me, the challenge has become, how do you stay at your best for an extended period of time, and how do you get your body in the best shape possible. You look at the Super Bowl, I've been a huge fan of Tom Brady for a long time, and consider him one of the greatest if not the greatest of all time. And he's doing it at 39. And the way that he takes care of his body is really a model for all quarterbacks."
Given that Rodgers showed up at the Packers' facilities in the best shape to start an offseason program, it appears he hasn't deviated from that approach.
