The 25 Fittest Men in the World

12.      Tim Tebow

He won two national titles and a Heisman, and invented the global craze of Tebowing. And at 6’3″ and 235 pounds, it looked like he was going to reshape the idea of a quarterback’s physical capabilities. “[Fitness] has played a huge role,” says the Florida Gator. “A lot of my game is being a physical player, a runner as well as a thrower, someone who plays all four quarters. You see a difference between us and other teams because we’re in better shape.” Tebow’s off-season regimen comprises shoulder work, bench presses, squats, lunges, speed and agility drills, and position-specific exercises with resistance. He can max out with the linemen but knows he doesn’t need to be “the strongest guy on the team.” Instead, he says he lifts smarter without hurting his body. He prefers to continue to hurt defenders, instead.
