Brandon Meriweather is not the most well-liked figure in the National Football League. The Toucher and Rich Show on 98.5 The Sports Hub Boston has made Meriweather into their own personal punching bag, ragging on him for the way he talks and the ridiculous things he says when a microphone is in his face. Booting someone during a fight while at The U or being tied to not one but two shootings probably hasn’t helped the Patriots’ safety’s reputation either.
Maybe all the criticism he has faced has inspired Meriweather to start preparing for Ivan Drago. Apparently standard equipment just wasn’t cutting it for the Big Bang Clock (New England reference), so he had to adjust his workout routine.
“We work out with a lot of different tools and weights,” Meriweather told the Providence Journal. “It’s not traditional bench press, squats. We do different things with weight. You can’t get these things from an ordinary gym. Now I go into a regular gym and am pretty much puzzled because I don’t see that stuff as helping me as much.”
Will the training regimen work for Brandon in a few months? The Russian is pretty big, and we know he juices. He has a lot of high-tech equipment at his disposal and some of the best trainers in the world. But can you really beat the effectiveness of old-fashioned conditioning? You think Drago’s a machine just because he can throw a punch with 1,700 pounds of force per square inch? No, he’s a man. No pain.
