Patrick Mahomes shedding ‘baby fat’ in offseason

Offseason stories about NFL players losing weight are old-hat, tropey narratives regurgitated on the routine. Many times they need to do with an over-heavy lineman losing pounds or even a running back getting back to salvage his career.
You do not hear a 24-year-old reigning MVP-winning quarterback using squealy athleticism talk and a rifle-rocket arm about getting into shape.
Patrick Mahomes is not your MVP. The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback told Terez Paylor of Yahoo Sports on shedding body fat this offseason he’s focused.

Mahomes, such as many workout artists throughout the summer months, tweaked his workouts to moisturize muscle while shedding the fat.
«For me, offseason-training wise, it is all about trying to define [my body]… trying to make sure I’m in the best shape possible, emotionally and emotionally and emotionally,» Mahomes said. «So the major thing for me this offseason going in was, I always wanted to gain muscle mass but in the same time, cut back weight. Kind of a mixture of both.»
Mahomes’ goal is to shed three to 5 percent body fat from the time training camp opens.
«The lowest I had been last year following coaching camp was 12 per cent, and that is pretty great,» Mahomes said. «But my goal is to be in the single digits, so I’m gonna try to have as low as possible while still being healthy and still having the human body to have the ability to bring a complete season.»
After Mahomes tossed for 5,097 yards and 50 TDs to win the MVP trophy in his first full season as a starter, many analysts project the K.C. QB to return to earth in 2019. Mahomes is working to ensure he remains among the stars that are bright.
