Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez training with former heavyweight

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez has been training with former boxing heavyweight Chris Byrd in the offseason, and Byrd said the 230-pound Gonzalez is a world-class athlete. "I've been at the highest level at amateur and pro," says Byrd, a silver medalist at the 1992 Olympics. "I know how hard guys work. He's a monster." Boxing drills have become a big part of Gonzalez's core-strengthening work. "Everything is an explosive movement," Gonzalez says. "Nothing's stationary." He's also taking part in a body-alignment program similar to yoga. 3B Luis Cruz has also been involved in some of Gonzalez's workouts, and the two have formed a close bond.
