We’re a day before mid-February and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes already appears to be getting ready for the 2019 season.

As far as methods there are many, but principles are few. Back to the basics, every offseason. #MVPat #teamAPEC #chiefs #APECNFL #basics #regen #training #nfltraining #NFLmvp #patrickmahomes #probowl #QBtraining @PatrickMahomes @Chiefs @NFL pic.twitter.com/puenx0h1MN— Bobby Stroupe (@bobbystroupe) February 12, 2019
“Today was about going back to the basics,” Stroupe says in the video, posted on Tuesday. “We want to reset the body. Movement patterns, mobility, stability. Tissue extends ability.”
Mahomes spoke about APEC with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram during the week leading up to Super Bowl LIII.
“I’ve worked at APEC since I was in fourth grade in Tyler,” Mahomes said, via star-telegram.com. “That is where I am from. This is where I grew up. I worked with Bobby when they were in a shed just started. It has grown as I have grown. It’s a hidden secret. I try to tell dudes around the league. I have been to other places. I fell in love with this place.”
APEC’s location in Tyler, Texas, means Mahomes will likely be doing most of his offseason training at home. The company’s website reveals that it’s where the Chiefs quarterback has been working out since he was in seventh grade.
Given all Mahomes’ success, it is comforting to know he isn’t changing much this offseason—if it isn’t broken (or led you to, you know, the NFL’s MVP Award), don’t fix it.
The Chiefs are due back in Kansas City for offseason workouts in mid-April.
