Get Shredded!
So I'm watching The Herd on EspnU. Herschel Walker said since he was about 18 or some young age, that he had eaten only one meal a day, all the way through pro ball, etc. He said on Game day in the NFL he didn't eat at all...before or after the game. And how in college his one meal was nothing but Snickers. For about 6 weeks....

Now he's an MMA fighter, vegetarian, and he says he only does one fruit shake a day. He said he was about 219lbs. Just thought I'd post this to show how different we can be and how much a super human freak can throw a wrench in your ideas of metabolics. This is why I always tell people that there are exceptions to the rules...but you're probably not one of those exceptions, so why risk it. Don't try this at home!

A full ESPN movie is coming on about him tonight at 8 on ESPNU for any other football/athlete nuts.

So I googled a little bit and here's one article. Herschel Walker's College Diet Consisted of Nothing But Snickers Bars | Dan On The Street - Sports and More from Dan Sheldon

I'm sure he never took steroids or was paid to play in college either. :coffee:

perhaps...but that doesn't change anything I'm talking about in my opinion. He's still a freak.

For a guy who wouldn't eat before or after an NFL game, he ran over some of the games best, and kept right on running.

Herschel fan, but I'd almost need a time machine and a private detective to follow him around to see if all he ate were Snickers bars.

^He is a classic example of a genetic monster. What works for him does not apply to us mere mortals. Phenomenal athlete.

Think what a freak he would be if he did eat right. However, I think he's embellishing the story to make himself out to be some kind of superhero.

yeah. he is a genetic freak. possibly the greatest athlete of all time. and im serious about that. I honestly don't think there isn't a sport he wouldn't have been a top 5 athlete in training in his prime.

Walker is some kind of superhero.

Herschel Walker made an indelible mark on University of Georgia (UGA) football history as a record-setting running back from 1980 to 1982. He led UGA to a national championship in 1980 and won the Heisman Trophy in 1982. Many observers of the game consider Walker to be one of the best players in college history. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1999.

Herschel Junior Walker was born in Wrightsville on March 3, 1962, to Christine and Willis Walker. In 1980 UGA football coach Vince Dooley signed Walker to a scholarship. As a freshman at UGA Walker led the team to an undefeated regular season and a Sugar Bowl victory over the University of Notre Dame to win the national championship. He drew consensus all-American honors and was third in the Heisman Trophy voting that season, setting records with 1,616 total yards, a rushing average of 146.9 yards, and fifteen touchdowns.

Walker was a consensus all-American in each of the three seasons he played at UGA, setting eleven National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) records, sixteen Southeastern Conference (SEC) records, and forty-one UGA records, including the most rushing yards in a game (283 against Vanderbilt University in 1980). He ran for more than 100 yards in eleven games as a sophomore.

At the end of his UGA career, Walker's total of 5,259 yards gained was the most ever by a college running back in a three-year career and made him the third leading rusher in NCAA history. His three seasons for UGA were the school's most successful in its long football history. UGA won three straight conference titles and posted a record of thirty-three wins and only three losses. Walker also competed on Georgia's track and field team, twice drawing all-American honors.

Walker left UGA after his junior season to play for the New Jersey Generals of the United States Football League (USFL). During his first season with the Generals in 1983, he set a professional single-season rushing record with 2,411 yards and was named the USFL's Most Valuable Player. After his first season in the USFL Walker completed his Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice from UGA.

When the USFL folded in 1986, Walker signed with the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League (NFL). He led the NFL in total yards from scrimmage in 1987 with 1,606 and led the league in rushing in 1988. The Cowboys traded Walker to the Minnesota Vikings in 1989, and he later played for the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants. He returned to the Cowboys shortly before retiring in 1997.

During his NFL career, Walker played in two Pro Bowls, and at the time of his retirement he trailed only Walter Payton in all-purpose yards gained in the NFL. Additionally, he led all players in that category in professional football history, counting his years in the USFL.

state of confusion and denial
I remember reading an article on him with the MMA stuff a month back. He talked about being poor so meat wasnt available, and neither is protein to build muscle. Claimed to be a vegetarian. All i know is he makes me want to go watch the latest rocky movie again.

Terrible grammar, just absolutely fucking terrible. However, very good content. I agree 100%. Athletes fucking have to have calories and much of those calories have to be protein. There is no way around it. I don't care if Walker is a genetic beast. Unless he has a genetic mutation that allows him to synthesis massive amounts of complex amino acids out of snicker bars, I'm calling bullshit on his shenanigans. A salad and some bread? Fucking please!

Shame on all of you. Just because you like a person, you will completely buy into their bullshit without even using your brain.

Dudes, 2011 almost 2012, Hershel Walker?



Still relevent?

Well sure! Like Walter Payton or Montana. Legends are always relevant.

^This.

I don't take anything for gospel. I don't care if he lied, ate crisco straight and shot up steroids all day. Dude's running was all the truth I need. It's all an entertainment career and entertainment position in the end...he entertained very well.
