A gym full of the NFL's top talent sweats around trainer Todd Durkin.

To the right, a Super Bowl MVP drives his knee into the air as he skips across the floor. To the left, several Pro Bowlers wait their turn. The athletes are just days from the start of training camp. In case any of them needed a reminder of why they were there, at Fitness Quest 10 in San Diego, Durkin provides it with a single sentence.

"No one can stop time, but the great ones can slow it down," Durkin says.

The Fountain of Football Youth

Take a closer look at the roster of athletes training and you might wonder if Durkin's facility sits above a hidden fountain of youth. That athlete with the Super Bowl ring who's intensely pushing himself through every move? That's Drew Brees, age 37, preparing himself for yet another 5,000-plus-yard season.

The Pro Bowler close behind? That's Darren Sproles, a running back and kick returner who, at age 33, is every bit as explosive and elusive as positional peers 10 years (or more) younger. In fact, nearly all of the players in the room are NFL veterans—most of whom come back to train with Durkin every summer.

The athletes come back because the workouts get them in great shape, of course. But they also come back because they can. They're still in the league. The workouts prepare them for the rigors of the season, and more often than not, they come out intact.

"From 20-plus years of training these athletes, you start to learn what imbalances football players develop throughout the season, and what their needs are," says Durkin, owner of Fitness Quest 10 and author of The WOW Book. "This is a tried-and-true program."

A big reason why the athletes enjoy such success is Durkin's smart workout design. And it starts with a smart warm-up. The 35-move sequence hits on just about every modality an athlete could want before a workout. The combination of up-tempo moves, plyometrics and agility ladder drills mixed with focused mobility work prepares their bodies in every way they could want. By the end, to a man, their heart rate is up, core body temperature is elevated, and their joints are primed to perform.

"This warm-up definitely gets you ready to go from feet to fingertips," Durkin says.

Now you can take a page from Durkin's All-Pro playbook and use his warm-up before your workouts. But be ready: Durkin's pre-workout sequence is tough.
