Recently Varitek meet with NESN to show how he’s been preparing.

During the off-season, Tek’s trainer, Leslie Eddins, has him on a strict diet, workout program, and training regimen.

Pre-Workout Meal (breakfast): egg whites, turkey, and tomatoes. In addition, he gets his initial carb load with a bowl of oatmeal with strawberries, bananas, and walnuts.

Training Day: He trains 2.5 to 3 hours per day at the gym where he focuses on core strength and cardio. He then follows that up with throwing and hitting drills.

Post Workout Meal (dinner): Steak or chicken with vegetables and a sweet potato. He’ll also have a protein shake, which generally includes oatmeal and peanut butter.

Watch an average training day for Varitek and see some of the core exercises his trainer has him doing:

Varitek’s dedication is just one reason he’s going down in Red Sox history.

Don’t be fooled by former Rookie-of-the-Year and American League MVP, Dustin Pedroia’s small stature. (Oh yeah, he’s also won a Silver Slugger award and a World Series – but who’s counting?) As he showed WEEI, he, too, has his own training regimen and personal chef preparing him special meals suited for his workouts, but still manages to join life on his downtime.

Sweet shirt Pedroia.

Pretty good stuff there. I’m pretty sure Pedroia trains at API in Phoenix along with a bunch of other big leaguers.
