Larry Fitzgerald's 40 million dollar workout

NFL Divisional Playoffs - Arizona Cardinals v New Orleans Saints

Today, Larry Fitzgerald signed a monster contract that gets him a cool 10 million dollars a year for the next four years. I remember when Fitzgerald was a player at Pitt where he just carried his team all the way to a BCS game. That year he should have won the Heisman, but of course now it all seems like a lost cause when your making 10 million dollars a year. Just how do Fitzgerald keep himself in game shape:

• Do lunges. Step forward with barbell behind neck. Three on one leg, three on the other is one set. One set at 365 pounds, three at 385. "It works the quads, hamstrings and glutes," says Fitzgerald. "That's where the power is to make plays."

• Do 14 cut sprints of 200 yards, in times between 26 and 33 seconds.

• Upper body lifting. Bench Press: four sets of five reps from 315 to 330 pounds. Seated shoulder press: four sets of six with an 85-pound dumbbell in each hand. Dips: four sets of six reps, with a 180-pound dumbbell strapped to waist.
