After five hours of working out, Watt does go home to refuel and reward himself. It’s not with a burger and fries, though.
“I take a nap for an hour which is probably the best part of the day to be honest and then the rest of my day is business stuff or family and friends.”
Watt has been cleared from rehab and says he plans to work hard, but also “work smart.” The core work is designed to not only strengthen his midsection, but to also protect his back moving forward.
The three-time AP Defensive Player of the Year has several months until the Texans begin organized team activities in April. Watt is optimistic that he will be ready.
“I don’t see any reason why not,” Watt said. “I’m fully cleared for football activities and everything. I’m sure I’ll be on some sort of a limited basis out there just to be smart.”
