Samaje Perine will wrap up his tremendous sophomore year at Oklahoma in the College Football Playoff. Perine and the Sooners will play Clemson on New Year’s Eve. Between now and then, Perine will probably go home for Christmas. Unless he wants to rest. Via The Oklahoman:
Perine’s home in Pflugerville, Texas, isn’t close to any gyms, so he asked assistant Oklahoma strength coach Mahala Wiggins for a good home workout. Wiggins suggested getting a deck of cards, shuffling them, drawing them one at a time and doing the number of push-ups that appear on the card.
Aces and Jokers are 20. Kings, Queens and Jacks are 10.
So Perine goes through the entire deck each morning, then reshuffles and does the same thing with sit-ups.
Then does the same thing at night.
That’s 792 push-ups and 792 sit-ups a day — every day — when Perine goes home.
No amount of home cooking is worth that.
