How Rob Gronkowski starts his days now that he's retired

By WEEI 93.7

Since it is Week 14 and Rob Gronkowski is not on a NFL roster, he officially cannot return to the Patriots this season.

So, how is the former Patriots tight end doing? How does he start his days now that he's in retirement?

Gronkowski joined sister station 103.3 AMP Radio's "The TJ Show" on Wednesday and detailed how he starts his mornings.

“I always have to wake up with a motive," he said. "I love getting my day going by moving my body. I actually have a trampoline, they call it a ‘Rebounder.’ The mini trampoline, you know what I am talking about? Not one of those big ones, a little one. The first thing I do, I do a couple of stretches to get my hips moving a bit, and I then I just jump up-and-down sometimes just to get my blood moving. … Get the energy rolling and that is what I need to do. I love to workout. I love to stay fit. Usually I start my day like that if I can’t get a workout in in the morning.”

The former tight end also said jumping jacks are in the mix, and noted his trampoline hasn't broke once.

“When I don’t do movement, when I don’t do my workouts, or any type of movement, what I also love is to just go for a walk in nature to start my day," he said. "I have a couple little different techniques, like it is either jumping on the trampoline, jumping jacks, go for a walk in nature, or go right into my workout. Depending on the day and depending on what I have, you just feel so much better, you feel so much more motivated and I feel like your mind is so much more clear when you do get that movement in the morning."

Gronkowski continues to be a spokesman for CBDMEDIC and also does some in-studio work for FOX Sports.
