Troy Aikman shared the workout and diet that’s keeping him ripped at 55
Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman may have retired from football, but that doesn’t mean the Monday night football the commentator takes it easy. In our latest episode of men’s health Gym & Fridge, the 55-year-old told us about his workout, diet, and supplements.
The first stop is the gym. Aikman is big on the dumbbells. He does cardio 5-6 days a week, and lifts 4 days a week. It’s been her routine ever since. 15 years old. He says it eliminated his lower back pain, which was the main reason he retired from football in 2001.
Now on the fridge. Aikman says that a few times a week he has a chef who comes to cook meals for him. A lucky guy. Along with all of his food, Aikman revealed he drinks a lot of water, and it’s all thanks to Tom Brady. Three years ago, at a production meeting, Brady walked in with a one-gallon jug of water, and Aikman decided to take inspiration from the current Tampa Bay quarterback. Aikman doesn’t know exactly how much he drinks per day, but he takes his jug with him wherever he goes.
“Sometimes taking this to restaurants and different places can be a little unpleasant, but I tend to lose count when drinking from the bottle,” he says.
The fridge is stocked with protein and vegetables, as well as beer, including Aikman’s own line of beer, EIGHT, for when Aikman wants to treat himself. And speaking of having fun, Aikman admits he doesn’t cheat oftenbut when he does, he’ll get a pizza or an oatmeal cookie on the sly.
“Some people have a cheat meal one day a week, I have one every two or three months,” Aikman says.
Talk about serious discipline.
