How does one stay in MVP shape year after year? Just ask Mike Trout.

The Angels' star center fielder recently wrapped up some pre-Spring Training workouts back in New Jersey, and by the looks of it his workout plan was intense.

Like, running-with-a-super-heavy-weight-on-your-back-that-would-make-anybody-jealous-at-your-strength intense:

FOX Sports noted that Trout just galloped across the room with 135 pounds over his head. That's a workout plan that rivals Clayton Kershaw's in all-out intensity

Remember that the next time you find yourself at the gym in search of the courage to up that resistance just a few more notches ... 

As for Trout, he'll now look ahead to joining the Angels in Arizona with his full entourage in tow:

First full season with these two !!
