Big Ben and diet are not two ideologies that should be combined, but the idea that Ben Roethlisberger has decided to commit to getting into perfect shape going into his 18th and possibly final season is a storyline so perfect it actually makes sense.
As Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger approaches what likely will be the last year of his career, he’s using a different approach.
Roethlisberger is focusing more than ever on his health and fitness.
“Ben camp says biggest concern is weight loss,” Ryan Burr reported on Twitter. “He has been so driven since [the] season ended. Source says his diet is stricter than [Tom] Brady.” (Maybe it’s as strict. It’s harder to imagine it being even stricter than the TB12 method.)
Roethlisberger’s camp also says he’s in the “best shape of his life” (99 percent of the players in the league will say that in mid-July), and that Roethlisberger “hears everything.”Pro Football Talk – https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/07/13/ben-roethlisberger-reportedly-has-focused-on-losing-weight-watching-diet/
I, for one, can’t wait to purchase my advanced copy of the Big Ben 7 Method. Finally a program by an athlete that feels attainable. There’s no way I’m giving up tomatoes or strawberries for TB12. I’m guessing the Big Ben diet is just mostly Slim Jims and rationed Red Bulls. It’s stricter in the sense that you actually can’t eat any fruits and vegetables.
We can only hope with this new diet Big Ben can push his annual crippling injury to at least December. Doing tons of calf raises and shoulder circles should be at the core of the BB7 exercise circuit.
To be honest I’m not sure Big Ben’s weight has been the problem for the Steelers for the last decade. I think focusing on throwing mechanics, studying a playbook and learning how to not throw interceptions might be a better program for him? Just a thought.
“Ripped Ben” or “Average Sized Ben” just doesn’t have the same je ne sais quoi. We can’t have Big Ben out here looking like Myles Garrett, no matter how hilarious that would actually look. However, the idea of starting a new health and wellness regimen in your 18th year on the job is an achievement only Big Ben can dream of.
What a nightmare for Steelers fans if this works. “You mean to tell me if Big Ben had just done a few chest presses, Tom Brady might not have any rings?” I can see the tweets from delusional Steelers fans now.
Stay big, Ben.
