The coronavirus COVID-19-induced stay-home order can be tough on a high school athlete’s training regimen. You can do only so many pushups and situps before you go stir crazy during a quarantine.
Well, Belleville High School senior Ramier Lewis has adopted an outside-the-box training method to shake things up a bit. Let’s just say he’s getting 2 ½ tons worth of resistance training.
The mammoth 6-foot-7, 340-pound University of Michigan football prospect is pitted against his father’s Chrysler Aspen. Lewis gets behind the SUV, leans for leverage and uses his lower body to drive-block the vehicle 40 to 50 yards down a neighborhood street.
Lewis is not the first football player to employ such a training method. In fact, four-star 2021 Michigan offensive line commit Greg Crippen has pushed a car in an effort to stay in shape.
