June 27 (UPI) — James Harrison doesn’t age. It’s a football fact. Now he is just showing off, by repeatedly playing volleyball with medicine balls.
The Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker posted a video of the exercise last week, but returned to the court Tuesday. Four days ago it was Sean Witherspoon and Robert Golden losing 7-0 to Harrison and Vince Williams.
“Y’all won the preseason games, see wat happen when the season starts next week! #fullbodyworkout,” Golden wrote on social media.
On Tuesday, Harrison teamed up with Sean Spence to beat Golden and his partner 7-0 once again.
Harrison, 39, also did the workout in 2016 and 2015.
“This right here gonna be the second 7-0 skunk of Robby G.,” Harrison said Tuesday, before lobbing the heavy ball, sending it soaring over the net.
“This time is was @5spence1 and I giving @goldenb0y21 another 7-0 beating for the 2nd time today,” Harrison wrote on his social media caption.
The 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year had 53 tackles last season, the most he has tallied since 2012. The two-time All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowler also had five sacks, two forced fumbles, an interception and one pass defended in 15 games for the Steelers. He started seven contests, his highest total since 2013.
Yes, Harrison’s volleyball workout is impressive, but don’t think for a second he hasn’t been in the gym. His social media accounts incriminate him to full gym-rat status. Harrison has shown some seriously intense strength this offseason at workouts, mandatory or voluntary. Those workouts have included 675-pound groin thrusts, a 1,400-pound sled push and other various unorthodox ideas.
Pittsburgh re-signed Harrison to a two-year, $3.5 million contract in March.
