Rams safety Taylor Rapp burned over 10,000 calories in insane 18 hours straight workout
Many from throughout the NFL landscape have posted pictures and videos on social media regarding their respective offseason workouts. Although a slew of players have documented some seriously impressive stuff during what has become quite the infamous offseason for the league, Los Angeles Rams safety Taylor Rapp has since taken things to a whole new level en route to upping the ante in a big way.
Over the weekend, Rapp worked out for 18 consecutive hours while notably burning more than 10,000 in the process. Rapp took to Twitter with his incredible feat.

The soon-to-be second-year defensive back, who encountered a stellar rookie season in 2019-20, burned the more than 10,000 calories by stringing together a nearly day-long workout that featured biking, running and swimming. By the end of the 18-hour stretch, Rapp had biked 125 miles with 103 of those miles coming as the result of one ride, swam for 1.25 miles, notched a four-mile hike, and ran three miles in addition to participating in an additional workout of some kind.
A second-round NFL Draft pick by the Rams from a year ago, Rapp tallied 100 total tackles, 62 solo wrap-ups, eight pass defenses, two picks, and one fumble recovery during his first go-round in Los Angeles. Prior to joining the Rams, Rapp played his collegiate football at the University of Washington. He was a first-team All-Pac 12 selection in each of his last two collegiate seasons as well.
Unfortunately for Rapp and company, though, the Rams will need to bounce back in 2020-21 while being forced to do so in the thick of the uber-talented NFC West division.
