I don't know much about yoga besides my wife taking classes a couple times a week. I also don't know much about working out besides having a gym membership that I don't use. What I do know is that Noah Syndergaard is doing yoga, and I like it. Yea I know, slow news day.
As you might remember, Noah was killing it at the gym after the 2016 season. The bowls of doom were flowing, and his already towering frame, stacked on extra muscles heading in to Spring Training.
Noah Syndergaard reported to camp Sunday and told reporters he -- seriously -- gained 15-17 pounds of muscle, wants to throw HARDER in 2017.— Anthony DiComo (@AnthonyDiComo) February 12, 2017
By May 1st, he was done for the season with a partially torn lat muscle. I'm no doctor, but like many fans, we looked at all that extra working out as a potential cause.
If you didn't know any better, you'd watch the below video and think this beast of a man was prepping for war in a football league. Impressive for sure, but seemed a bit excessive.
I get it. Strength is a big part of the game, and shrimps aren't blowing guys away with 100+ mile heaters. By all means a guy with the nickname of Thor is going to work out. Just do it smart, work lighter, and get to a nice balance of power and flexibility. Looks like he's doing that now, and it's a pleasure to see.
Keep it up, Noah.
P.S. The Mets would be making a ginormous mistake trading Noah. You want to win more than you lose. Right? Spend and get some game changing bats to back up our arms. It's a no brainer.
Keeping him AND filling the holes sounds a lot better, Mets. https://t.co/z080PA1ocm— The 7 Line (@The7Line) November 21, 2018
