Warmack battles his belly bulge

Warmack AP

Titans guard Chance Warmack became known at Alabama for a protruding midsection.  Now, he’s trying to make that a memory.

“I feel a lot more together than I did last year,” Warmack said this week, via John Glennon of the Tennessean.  “I think if I can stay in the 330- or 335-pound range, it will be good because that’s what I played at last year.  But I think the 335 looks a little different now.  I feel good about it.”

In the past, the 335 looked like a gut that was exposed as his shirt rode up in Alabama, creating the phenomenon known as Warmacking.  To make the change, Warmack has been working with former NFL center LeCharles Bentley.

“He pretty much showed me the blueprint of how to get me right,” Warmack said of Bentley.  “He just put me through a couple of things that he sets out for everybody that trains with him.  So I’ve just followed what he says and it’s been working out for me.”

Warmack has worked out so far in Tennessee, starting 16 games as a rookie.  To thrive over the long term, he needs to take care of his body and prepare himself to remain healthy and effective over the long haul.  The gut can return after he’s done playing.

If he’s smart, Warmack will get rid of it completely, and permanently.

    335 looks different? Was simply wearing a longer shirt one of the “couple things” he learned when attempting to change his appearance, or what?

    I will step aside as many of the posters on here have special expertise on a bulging gut

    Avoid foods that contain white flour & white sugar. Yes, everything that tastes good that you love to lose weight.

    Good for him Im glad theres a good story for everyone involved… Usally you only hear about the players that got lazy and became bust just cause of lack of effort…Even though I bleed silver and black I have to tip my cap to this guy making his team feel good about drafting him..and you know what players Im talking about I wont even say there names ever again they let alot people down besides themselves ..So good for Warmack way to go”

    Get rid if it completely? That’s what makes him a mauling run blocker. Bulk. That’s like saying Vince Wilfork should’ve gotten rid of his gut. Builds are builds, and football players are football players.

    By the time you read this comment, LeCharles Bentley will be an Eagle. ~ Mark Eckel, Trenton Times

    He’d be known as the skinny one among Viking fans.

    Come on Chance. Show them how it’s done. Pro Bowl this year. Roll Titans!

    He should be directing traffic in Wisconsin

    You don’t block with your belly!

    John Lott will have him in the best shape of his life. With the Cards the team was in amazing shape.

    who cares,this guy is great player and will be a pro bowl player for years to come

    Lecharles Bently was the man. Too bad he got injured. He would’ve had a great career at center.

  20. fundamentals425 says: May 3, 2014 2:43 PM

    Haven’t heard lecharles bently’s name in a long time, kinda forgot about him. Sad way to end a promising career, glad he is still involved.

    Sadly true, at least in his rookie year. Wanted the Titans to get Wardord last year & take someone else with the 10th pick. But I think he’ll come around & Be a monster going forward.
