Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. spends over $300K on his body in offseason
Keeping an NFL body in shape during the offseason can get expensive, but New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr has taken it to the next level. In his latest episode of his weekly docu-series, “I am more: OBJ” Beckham Jr. said he spent more than $300,000 during the offseason to keep his body right.
“I take care of my body each and every day. I put, probably, over $300,000 in my body in the offseason,” said Beckham, who was shown in the most recent episode meeting regularly with his personal biomechanics trainer and chiropractor during the current season via ESPN. “It’s a lot to upkeep. I don’t ever want to decline.”
Beckham Jr. noted that he has studied Tom Brady and how he takes care of his body, and he is using him as a role model on how to keep his body in tip-top shape.
In the episode he said he can tell the offseason work is helping because right now he is only dealing with a calf contusion. With how much worse his body could be he considers only having a calf contusion a win.
So far this year Beckham has 77 catches for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns. He has also thrown two touchdown passes. Beckham feels good about this year but thinks next he can even take a bigger step forward.
“I feel like next year I’ll be even better,” Beckham said.
Beckham and the Giants have four games left to try to finish the season strong, and that starts on Sunday against the Washington Redskins.
