A Wake Up Call for Hines Ward [Sponsored]
252 Days until the Kona IRONMAN World Championship, Hines Ward begins the most challenging, physically demanding portion of his IRONMAN training. In this third episode of the BECOME ONE documentary series, we catch up with the former Steelers wide receiver and his trainer, eight-time IRONMAN World Champion Paula Newby-Fraser, as they work up stamina, speed, and technique. Ward experiences some triathlon firsts; like clipping into his bike and swimming ¼ of the distance he is to face at Kona.
Feeling the hard work, Hines realizes, “I gotta wake up, I gotta go out there, I gotta push myself.” Most importantly, Hines learns the importance of post-workout refueling with low fat chocolate milk from registered dietitian and board-certified sports die tics specialist (and Hine’s dear friend from his days in Pittsburgh) Leslie Bonci.
