The wear and tear you absorb over a football season is incredible
Manasquan, NJ (Vocus) September 7, 2008
Last year, it all came together for the NFL's most dangerous rushing and pass-catching weapon. Philadelphia Eagles running back Brian Westbrook piled up yards, receptions, and TDs with breathtaking ease, as his remarkable combination of speed, grace, and power left opposing defenses hopelessly overmatched. At season's end, after leading the NFL in yards from scrimmage with 2,104 yards, Westbrook was named to his second Pro Bowl and first All-Pro team. Now his high-profile on-field heroics have earned him another choice reward: a promotional deal with the makers of his favorite protein bar, Supreme Protein®.
Westbroook came into the league in 2002 projected as a change-of-pace, situational player. He's been exceeding expectations of all sorts ever since. Last year, he truly came into his own as an every-down, workhorse running back and one of the NFL's elite offensive threats. Long celebrated for his superb conditioning and stamina, Westbrook took his physique to a new level last year, adding lean muscle mass and decreasing body fat. For these improvements, he credits changes in overall diet, including the newest addition to his regimen, Supreme Protein® bars.
"Supreme Protein® bars were a terrific discovery for me," the elusive ball carrier says. "I'll usually eat two a day. The flavor is sensational and each one has all the ingredients to deliver the high nutritional profile I need to perform at a high level."
That high level of performance has been striking fear into the hearts of opponents since Westbrook came to the Eagles in the 2002 NFL Draft. Last year, in addition to leading the entire league in total yards, Westbrook also set a new career high in rushing yeards with 1,333 and set a new Eagles franchise record with 90 receptions. He is, clearly, the NFL's most dangerous all-purpose offensive player. Although he had experienced some nagging injuries in earlier years (including a foot injury that shut him down completely near the end of the 2005 season), last year saw him earn a flawless bill of health on the way to playing every game of the season.
"The wear and tear you absorb over a football season is incredible," Westbrook says. "It's important for me to stay healthy, while also maintaining lean body mass and weight so that I can maximize my strength and stamina. Supreme Protein® bars allow me to get the protein and nutrients that I need so that I recover from games and workouts faster. Since I've added Supreme Protein® bars to my routine, I've been leaner, faster and stronger than ever."
Now, as the 2008 NFL season is about to kick off, Westbrook's sights are set on goals that go beyond the personal benchmarks he set last year. With the help of Supreme Protein® bars and his remarkable peak physical conditioning, he looks to return his Philadelphia Eagles to the top of the heap in the highly competitive NFC East and onward to the Super Bowl.
