If you thought you could carry on life without an interview done while someone is using a foam roller for an extended period of time, you are quite wrong my friend.

Detroitlions.com’s video crew met up with Trey Flowers in his hometown of Madison, Alabama to check out his offseason routine. I was particularly taken with this foam roller interview:

“That’s one of the things about just being a veteran in the league ... I didn’t think it was as important as it is now but definitely gotta warm up, your muscles are going to be sore - you’re going to put them through a lot of work so if you don’t warm them up properly, you could potentially hurt yourself,” he explains.

But, seriously, the dude goes HAM in a workout and gives some insight into how to stay in shape when all I’d want to do is binge Netflix and shove donuts in my face with my time off. He explains after taking some time to heal, he’s now focusing on some core training versus heavier weightlifting—even though he starts bench pressing Kellie-sized dumbbells. Ya know, the lighter stuff.

I also wanted to add I think the video crew did a really creative job with this, cool perspectives and angles. Watch the whole thing here:
