Despite his enthusiasm for the gym sessions, Shannon Sharpe continues to approach them as if he is chasing another Super Bowl championship. Sharpe has long moved on from his days of playing football on the field but he has not lost the athletic abilities he gained from it. In a recent video posted on his Instagram, Sharpe posted an impressive 365 lbs bench press for multiple reps.
After enjoying a successful career in the NFL, the three-time Super Bowl champion transitioned into the role of a commentator. He played for the Denver Broncos for 12 seasons, and for the Baltimore Ravens for two. By the time Sharpe decided to hang up the boots, he held the records for the most receiving touchdowns, receptions, and receiving yards.
He did not leave his training days behind as he continued to push his body’s limits. Although he is no longer playing, he still trains like an elite athlete. The NFL Hall of Famer has shown no signs of slowing down. For his latest birthday, Sharpe shared a physique update where he looked absolutely shredded. It’s incredible to see him carry the performance and discipline from his sporting days into retirement.
Sharpe maintains his immense stature through proper training and a diet regimen. A clip of the 54-year-old doing an unbelievably high rep bench press workout went viral on social media. Fans were left in disbelief after seeing his age-defying workout. He was not only doing high reps but also lifting relatively heavy weights.
