Willson Contreras isn’t letting baseball’s shutdown keep him from staying in shape for its eventual return, as evidenced in the video below. Contreras is one of several Gatorade roster athletes — others include Patrick Kane, Jayson Tatum, April Ross, Mallory Pugh, Christian Pulisic and more — who are coming together digitally to share behind-the-scenes looks at how they are training at home to stay at the top of their game.
WillCo’s workout focuses on lower-body strength and conditioning, almost all of which can be done with equipment you probably already have at home. In the event that you don’t have weights lying around, the video offers tips for coming up with suitable substitutes. It does not, however, grant you Contreras’ cat-like quickness and incredible athleticism.
The campaign was inspired by ‘The Greatest’ himself, Muhammad Ali, who once said, “Don’t count the days; make the days count.” You can find more of this at-home training content on the @Gatorade Instagram and YouTube accounts.
