NFL Superstar J.J. Watt Is Shirtless & Ripped for 'Men's Health'!
Here’s what the 26-year-old legend, who is joined for the shirtless spread by fellow football stars DeMarco Murray, Byron Jones, and Julian Edelman, had to share with the mag:
On the small steps to his success: “My whole life has been a series of small goals to accomplish even bigger ones. Everybody sees the big checkpoints. But my life has been a series of small checkpoints. I wanted to be a starter on varsity. And then I wanted to be all-conference. And then I wanted to be all-state. It was never, when I was 15, ‘Okay, I want to play in the NFL and be the best.’ So I was defensive player of the year once. I wanted it again. I got it.
On enjoying things in life: “One thing I’ve worked extremely hard on, this year specifically, is trying to enjoy life more. In the past I unnecessarily blocked myself out of a lot of things. I just focused completely on training.”
On wanting a relationship: “I really want somebody to share all this with. It’s just very difficult. I want to be the best at everything, no matter what I do. I want to be the best football player. If I’m a husband, I want to be the best husband. If I’m a father, I want to be the best father.”
