from Mike G. Morreale of NHL.com,
“I changed up my offseason workout plan and decided to work closely with Gary Roberts for 7-8 weeks throughout the summer,” Stamkos told NHL.com. “Everyone knows he’s a pretty fanatical guy off the ice and his workouts are tough, but I wanted to stay in shape and learn from him. I definitely see a difference in my body and muscle composition. I didn’t want to bulk up too much because that’ll slow you down, but I do feel stronger and that’s one area I really wanted to improve.”
Stamkos certainly isn’t the only player in the League learning from the best—Dallas Stars forward James Neal also trained with Roberts at his gym in Toronto. Stamkos’ program includes four days at Roberts’ facility for muscle training and two days of cardio—also prescribed by Roberts—on his own.
