Berríos' car-pushing helped propel him to a stellar 2018 campaign in which he struck out 202 batters in 192 1/3 innings with an ERA under 4. While Berrios seems to be up to his old truck-pushing tricks again, he's also added a brand new offbeat exercise to his routine.

Honestly this clip looks more like footage from "Planet Earth" of turtles making their way onto a beach to lay eggs, but you've got to trust an expert like Berrios when it comes to fitness routines you've never seen before.
