A Los Angeles Rams defensive back went through quite the workout over the Memorial Day weekend.
Taylor Rapp, a 22-year-old safety out of Washington, was back in the Evergreen State and he decided to get in a workout. With gyms and training facilities closed, Rapp had to get in his workout outside. That didn’t appear to be a problem.
The Rams safety competed in a challenge, trying to burn 10,000-plus calories in a single day. And he did just that.
Rapp said that he biked 125 miles – 103 of which came in a single ride – swam 1.25 miles, hiked four miles, ran three miles and did a short workout. All of this took place from 4:30 a.m. until 9:09 p.m.

Now that is pretty incredible.
The 6-foot safety is coming off his rookie season in Los Angeles. Rapp was a second round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft out of Washington. He was a two-time first-team All-Pac 12 player with the Huskies.
Rapp had a solid first season in the NFL, recording 100 tackles, eight pass deflections, two interceptions, one fumble recovery and one defensive touchdown.
It’s pretty evident from Rapp’s insane Memorial Day weekend workout that he has the work ethic needed to continue to improve in the NFL, too.
Now, get some much-needed rest.
