Prince Fielder does squats with Rougned Odor on his shoulders (video)


Prince Fielder utilized a rather unconventional pregame workout routine to get ready for an exhibition match-up during spring training a few weeks back by doing squats with Texas Rangers teammate Rougned Odor on his shoulders.

The video, recorded by Rangers relief pitcher Keone Kela, was posted to Instagram a few weeks back but has just started to make its way around the Internet.

Impressive. A word to the wise: Don’t ever take this tandem on in swimming pool chicken fight. Bad idea, man.

Even more impressive, though, albeit in a baffling kind of way? The Rangers boast two Rougned Odors in their organization. The second baseman’s younger brother, also named Rougned, signed a contract with the team back in February.

The unique pregame regimen arguably paid dividends, as the Rangers first baseman hit .341 with a homer and 7 RBI in 44 spring training at-bats.

All that aside, imagine if Fielder would have done some squats with two Rougneds on his back. Two Rougneds. Huh. Sounds like a beer from a microbrewery or something.
