Khalil Mack looks ridiculously jacked in new workout video: LOOK

Three-time All-Pro pass rusher Khalil Mack looks fit as ever as he enters his ninth NFL season.

Mack started seven games for the Chicago Bears in 2021, the fewest he’s ever played in a regular season. Hampered by a foot injury that ultimately required surgery, Mack finished the tournament with 19 total tackles (six for losses), a fumbled recovery, seven QB hits and 6.0 sacks, according to Pro Football Reference.

New general manager Ryan Poles arrived in January, opting to trade the 31-year veteran to the Los Angeles Chargers in exchange for a second-round pick this year, which resulted in rookie safety Jaquan Brisker and a sixth-rounder the next year, which the Poles traded back to the Chargers for two seventh-round picks (254th and 255th overall). Those two picks were issued for the safety of Elijah Hicks and punter Trenton Gill.

Mack hasn’t played since Oct. 24, 2021, but he said at his inaugural press conference in March that he feels “100% ready,” and based on a recent video shared to his Instagram page, he certainly looks ready to wreak havoc opposing quarterbacks again.

In a video he shared to his Instagram page on June 18, Mack is seen working out with Strong House Fitness trainer Jerry Housey. It’s clear that the two are doing ab workouts, and it’s equally clear that Mack has taken excellent care of his body.

Check out the video of their workout below and note the hilarious look Mack gives Housey at the very end of the clip:

The driving force behind Mack’s trade was largely fiscal. Mack was entering the fifth year of the six-year, $141 million extension he signed with Chicago in 2018, and the Poles are looking to terminate his contract.

“I would say one of the harder things was dealing with Khalil Mack,” Poles said in March via the team’s official website. “A guy of that caliber of player isn’t easy to leave but it’s one of those situations where you knew you had to do what was best for the club.”

Trevis Gipson, a third-year pass rusher who is expected to try to fill in Mack’s footsteps next season, noted he learned a lot from Mack and his veteran fellow defender Robert Quinn. Gipson forced five blunders last year, tying league Defensive Player of the Year TJ Watt for fifth in the NFL, and says he learned that specifically from Mack and Quinn.

“I think I picked it up from the vets in my room last year, Mack and Quinn,” Gipson said June 15 at minicamp credit for a sack and the forced fumbling.’ … I think getting the ball out is more important than attacking. I find it more important than many other things. It can change the dynamic of the game.”

Gipson isn’t the only player Mack has made an impression on.

“Hey, it sucks when one of your guys leaves, one of the leaders,” Bears linebacker Roquan Smith said April 20. “But hey, life goes on. I know he’ll do well out there in LA. You know, a healthy Mack is one hell of a player, as we all know.”

That’s right — and Mack looks healthy as ever for the 2022 season.
