Leonard Fournette's Trainer Has Telling Admission On His Weight Gain

  Leonard Fournette's Trainer Has Telling Admission On His Weight Gain It was recently reported that Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette weighed 260 pounds at mandatory minicamp. The team's coaching staff obviously wasn't thrilled about that. Fournette's trainer, Jordan Bush, has been working with the talented running back since minicamp. During an interview with Greg Auman of The Athletic, Bush admit that Fournette showed up to minicamp heavier than the Buccaneers anticipated. On the bright side, it sounds like Fournette is putting in the necessary work to make sure he's ready for Week 1. “Honestly, he did return to us a little bit bigger than we wanted,” Bush said.

Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette reportedly angered the team’s coaching staff by showing up to mandatory minicamp weighing nearly 260 pounds. But Fournette’s trainer says that will be a distant memory when the season starts.

Trainer Jordan Bush, who has been working with Fournette since minicamp, acknowledged to Greg Auman of TheAthletic.com that Fournette came in heavy, but said Fournette is putting in the work.

“Honestly, he did return to us a little bit bigger than we wanted,” Bush said. “He was also in the sauna every day, getting extra cardio every single day. We called it ‘fat camp,’ just to mess around with him, but he was doing that type of stuff every single day. We could see the weight coming off.”

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis pushed Republicans to 'hold Biden and his minions accountable' if they get control of Congress

  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis pushed Republicans to 'hold Biden and his minions accountable' if they get control of Congress Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was the starring act for a major statewide fundraiser on Saturday, where he sent a message to Republicans back in America's capital: Get President Joe Biden. "We need to see some action to hold Biden and his minions accountable," DeSantis said before a 1,500-person crowd packed into a banquet room at the Sunshine Summit, a fundraiser held by the Republican Party of Florida. The governor went on a tirade against Biden's immigration policy. He described the administration's approach as "open border," referring to the record number of migrants that have arrived in the US during the last year.

Bush said that after spending a month training in Texas, Fournette was down to the low 240s.

“The thing about Lenny, he gains weight fast,” Bush said. “He’s a big human in general. Leonard has a big frame. He’s not a small guy by any means. His legs are huge, not in a bad way. Learning his body and how he works, we understand what it takes, if he needed to lose five pounds, what he needs to do. It’s triple-digit [temperatures] every day out here.”

Bush called Fournette’s weight “blown out of proportion.” If he performs when the season starts, no one will care what he weighed in the offseason.
