Well, there is no denying that Mahomes isn’t one with a bodybuilder image in the NFL, his prime focus has always been the football field. But there sure is one person who cares, his trainer Bobby Stroupe, who didn’t take a laugh out of Mahomes’ dad bod era. And now, his goal is to change this narrative ahead of the upcoming NFL season. 

In a recent post shared by Stroupe on Instagram, where he usually shares training videos with Mahomes, he wrote a caption well-defining his goal of changing the ‘dad bod’ narrative for the elite NFL quarterback. He posted a picture of him with Rashee Rice wearing a t-shirt imprinted with Mahomes’ viral dad bod picture.

He wrote in the caption:

It’s not a dad bod, it’s a father figure.

The Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver wore the t-shirt in a workout session with the quarterback and Marquise Brown, earlier this week. Stroupe’s caption was also a distinct tribute to the fatherly figure the future GOAT typifies being a father to his two children, daughter Sterling and son Bronze

Bobby Stroupe’s key to Patrick Mahomes’ peak performance

The biggest reason why Stroupe has been the Chiefs’ star quarterback’s longtime trainer is his exceptional attention to the minor details and intricacies of the elite athlete’s physique. He doesn’t work on creating too vigorous a routine for him, instead, he focuses on small elements impacting his performance and that’s what makes him an expert in his field.

Mahomes has also credited Stroupe many times in the past for his ability to stay healthy and recover at a good speed after sustaining an injury, compared to other athletes. 

As for his ‘dad bod’ image, it went viral to such an extent that the quarterback also made fun of himself, saying he is hiding six-packs underneath his stomach. For a high-performing athlete such as Mahomes, his trainer sure does know the importance of his fitness.
