NFL LINEBACKER, CHICAGO BEARS
After being a superstar at Boise State, Shea was drafted 17th overall by the Chicago Bears. However for the next three years he struggled. His confidence was low and his body was out of shape. He tried to pack on the pounds, but he ended up gaining more fat than muscle.
When Scot evaluated Shea, he realized he was missing some strength qualities needed for football. As a linebacker, Shea didn’t have the back strength necessary to drive past his opponent and disengage. Shea moved to California and began a three month peak performance plan with Scot, working out five days a week, three hours a day. Plus Scot put him on a nutrition plan to complement the physical side of his training.
Scot says, “The first hour of the workout would be all movement-based stuff, linebacker stuff, drills — really teaching him how to drop his hips and move in space. It was all multidirectional stuff. In the later afternoon we would hit on real critical strength stuff he needed; other days it was explosive strength.”
Impact after working with Scot
When Scot met Shea he was 273 lbs 16 % body fat and he ran the 40 in 4.8 seconds. He’s now 259 lbs 9 % body fat and runs the 40 in 4.55 seconds. Recently Shea signed his dream deal with the New England Patriots for 3 years 3.5M a year.
