Besides trying to get #Laroning trending on twitter, Adam Carriker always prepares himself for a busy off-season. Training is something that all players take serious, and something that every player looks at from a completely different angle.

In his most recent blog about the Off-Season, he tackles what players should be doing in the off-season and what players like himself are actually doing... www.prointerviews.org/TheOffseason (If you want to read an excerpt, take the jump.)

In a lot of people’s minds the off-season is just a bunch of days off for NFL players. To be honest, it certainly can be. If you want, you can sit on your butt 24-7 watching TV, or you can go out partying, or whatever you want to do. There are no team requirements otherwise. I do know some players that have done that in the past. It is no coincidence that they are no longer in the NFL. Most guys I know, or at least the successful players take about two to four weeks off after the season. This is almost a necessity. I know some players who go to far the other way and never take any time off and the next day after the season is over they are back in the weight room working out and doing conditioning drills. You have to respect the work ethic, but almost laugh at that approach. The NFL season is a grueling marathon. It is physically demolishing and mentally exhausting, and if by the end of the season, you don’t feel that way, it means you didn’t put enough effort into the season. The body and mind have to get some time off to recover.

As always, please check out the newest blog article that Adam Carriker took the time to write. He has a great one coming about the NFL Draft, and his experience completely leading up to it.
