Reggie Bush on the offseason: “I think we laid out a foundation and now we have to continue to build on that”Posted by on June 17, 2013 – 11:32 am
“I think we laid out a foundation and now we have to continue to build on that. With this time off, guys have got to be smart and just make sure that we’re staying in shape, doing the right things and making the right decisions on and off the field.
“Then when we get back, it’s full go. I thought my time was well spent in my offseason here. I learned a lot and I’m excited about this break. Then once training camp comes around, it’ll be time to go.
“Looking ahead to the next six weeks, I have enough experience now to where I know what my body needs, when I need it, how to stay in shape and when to turn it on right before training camp to get myself prepared for the long haul.
“I have a set program for myself. It won’t be as intense right now just because I’d like to taper it back a little bit and then pick it back up towards the middle of July, right before training camp.
“I think the key is to not overwork yourself because I think one thing that guys get caught up in is they train so hard that by the time they finish week one of training camp, they’re already drained.
“So I think there has to be a happy medium where you’re still training hard, but you’re not killing yourself and wearing yourself down. You still want to be in good shape, but at the same time you have to save something in the tank, too, because training camp is tough.”
