Wilson is among the league’s quarterbacks who are in the running for the NFL’s Most Valuable Player trophy, Newsweek reported Monday. And as the football league’s highest-paid player, Wilson has not fooled around over the last few years when it comes to keeping in shape.

Back in August, the Seahawks QB shared how wife Ciara has even gotten in on his workouts with a video posted to his Instagram page. There, he pushed a cart to train while Ciara cheered him on.

“Let’s go, let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s be great! Let’s go!” the singer cheered.

But Wilson has also done well for himself working out solo.

The athlete shared with Men’s Journal ahead of the 2016 season what he focuses on as a quarterback.

“I’ve really focused on my leg strength in recent years,” he said. “When you’re growing up, you always think that your upper body strength and everybody is testing your best thing, your bench max and all that kind of stuff. As a quarterback, it’s really more so leg strength, core strength, shoulder stability, and core stability. The thing that I really pride myself on is mobility—my mobility and flexibility. I’m constantly working out those areas.”

This year, his workouts consist of lifting weights four days a week, and the sessions are divided into two strength days and two speed days, which Muscle and Fitness reported zero in on training from the Olympic weightlifting realm that fits in line with how Wilson cuts up the field.

But it’s not just about working out. Diet goes hand in hand with staying in shape.

“I’m from the South, so I love eating good food,” he told GQ last fall. “I’m trying to eat organic, whole nutrition-type foods to help me fuel and repair. That’s really critical for me.”
