Leonard Fournette grew up on the mean streets of the 7th Ward of New Orleans, where his exploits in pickup football games at Goretti Playground became legend. Now that he’s all grown up, Fournette’s incredible brute strength—the key to his bruising, slanting running style—has only improved, as a result of one of the most intense workout programs ever cooked up for a football player at any level. While at St. Augustine High School, Fournette trained with Eddie Compass, the former police chief of New Orleans and a strength and conditioning expert.
“Eddie developed a workout program called ‘the 4th Quarter Concept,’” says Fournette. “The objective is to simulate in-game situations for my body in the training room that directly duplicate my on-the-field physical requirements.”
His dedication to training quickly paid dividends at LSU: In his sophomore season, he set school records for yards (1,953) and TDs (22). His current goal is to use his speed (4.51 in the 40) and size (a potential playing weight of 240) to blow past would-be NFL tacklers like a blowtorch through butter.
Directions: Perform workout four times, with three minutes of rest between rounds.
