Adrian Peterson says he’s going to “crank” up his workouts before training camp

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson told the Star Tribune that he doesn’t plan on relaxing before training camp begins next month.  He’s only going to work harder to get ready for the season.

“I’m going to crank it up,” Peterson said. “I find my time to kind of unwind and relax at times. But to be great, you’ve got to put in a lot of work. And I know that, so that’s why I work as hard as I do.”

Peterson will spend some time in his new home in Houston with his family during his down time.  He’ll also enjoy the annual Adrian Peterson Day that’s held every year in his hometown of Palestine, Texas.
