Chad Ochocinco Works Out With Teammates

The long standing issue with fullback Jeremi Johnson during his stay with Cincinnati, was his Merlin-like ability to transform into an offensive guard in a few months. After some Marvin Lewis frustration and overtime work with Ray Oliver and Chip Morton, Johnson would eventually get his weight down to actually look more like fullback rather than Nate Newton.

Chad Ochocinco, on the other hand, is trying to keep his weight on after training for some time on Dancing with the Stars. On Thursday, Chad returned to Cincinnati to workout with his teammates.

“He looked good. Lean. He’s never far off from being in shape, anyway,” (strength and conditioning coach Chip) Morton said. “I gave him a hug and he went to work. He didn’t blow it away, but he wasn’t blown away either by what he did. He fit right in with the guys. Somewhere in the middle.”

Morton also said:

...the thing that Ochocinco has to worry about is making sure he keeps on weight and doesn’t lose it. It’s too early to tell what kind of impact Burke’s demanding eight-hour practice sessions are going to have on his season, but Morton expects to see some benefits.

“I don’t know how long they train,” he said. “I know it’s rigorous from a flexibility standpoint, from a mobility standpoint, even from an agility standpoint there’s some productive carryover. It depends how often they work, how long they work. I don’t know those details but I know it gives you some stability and strength.”

Kids, learn the lesson. Work hard, be rewarded by dancing with hot chicks and playing in the NFL. Don't work hard and in five years, no one will remember that your first name is spelled with an "i" and not a "y".
