Patrick Mahomes cutting down body fat before training camp

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is coming off of a very successful season, but he isn’t resting on his MVP laurels this offseason.

Mahomes said in June that he’s focused on improving his footwork heading into the 2019 season and the Chiefs want him to sharpen up other details of his game as well. Mahomes isn’t just working on his game, though.

He told Terez Paylor of Yahoo Sports that he’s working to get his body fat into single digits after getting as low as 12 percent last season. The ketchup-loving quarterback said that he’s cleaned up his nutrition to help with that pursuit and he’s seen results already.

“I’ve gotten more muscular and [have] less baby fat, I guess you would say,” Mahomes said. “So that’s been the big thing for me — sculpting my body in the best way possible so I can go through the season and feel just as fresh at the end as I did at the beginning.”

Some might feel that Mahomes has nowhere to go but down after the year he posted in 2018, but it seems the quarterback is going to do whatever he can to keep that from happening.

  1. What is Tom Brady’s body fat count?

    Simms statement that if Aaron Rodgers was the Chiefs QB that the Chiefs would have won the AFC Championship Game in regulation time is simply asinine. Is that his role on PFT? To be asinine?

  2. He is awesome, so wouldn’t doubt him, but sculpted bodies and low body fat haven’t correlated with great QB play and QB durability. There are basically zero jacked players in the list of Super Bowl winning QBs.

  3. All the haters keep talking about Mahomes crashing and burning this year. Not gonna happen!! This kid is the real deal. Get used to it!!

  4. Dedication to the craft is a good sign. You don’t get out what you don’t put in, no matter how talented. Let’s hope this kid stays focused because he has some crazy god given talents.

    If last years version of Patrick Mahomes was the QB of Green Bay 2014-2016 the Packers would have made a Super Bowl.

  6. What is PFT’s obsession with Body Fat?

    Only time it matters is when there’s too much (or rarely, too little).

  7. A leaner Patrick Mahomes – he’s already a superb scrambler and a decent runner, now he’ll be quicker and more agile. A special talent working hard to be better!
