The Los Angeles Angel shares his go-to core, speed, and lower-body workouts.
At just 26 years old, Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout is already one of the best players in the MLB. The six-time All-Star and two-time MVP is ranked second in the league with 19 home runs and he’s on pace to put up career highs in hits, walks, doubles, and more. He also helped the Angels get in a good position to compete for a spot in the playoffs for the first time since 2014.
The New Jersey native works relentlessly off the field, training up to six days per week during the offseason and throwing in extra late-night sessions. His routine is a healthy mix of strength, cardio, and agility work, and it’s anything but ordinary. Case in point: He likes to load tires with hundreds of pounds of dumbbells and wheel them across the gym. “It makes my entire body feel strong,” he says.
After winning nearly every award during the first seven years of his career, Trout hopes to add another to his resume this year: a World Series title. With the season in full swing, he spoke with Furthermore about how he prepares for the season, strengthens his lower body, and builds competition into every workout.
