Five hours before game time, Jim Thome goes through a rigorous regimen of exercises designed to prolong his career. It actually may have revived it.

Unseen by all but White Sox teammates and unknown by most insiders, Thome has developed a new dedication that has contributed to his hot startónine home runs in the month of April.Linky (http://chicagosports.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/whitesox/cs-060422soxbrite,1,4067004.story?coll=cs-whitesox-headlines)

And the side benefit is, it doesn't give you back acne or make your head grow like the programs some other athletes have adopted.

It'd be cool if you actually gave us some sort of summary of the exercises instead of a link.

The article doesn't list the exercises and says no one other than his teammates really knows the routine.

I always remember a SI article, when Thome was with the Indians, where Thome said he hated lifting weights and always had bacon and eggs for breakfast. Good thing he didn't keep up that regimen.

Reminds me of another White Sox Hall of Famer.

Are you talking about Brain and Nerve tonic?

Schneider said Thome's two-hour workout includes two different programs with alternating exercises. Most are designed for back muscles and abdominals, but Thome also works religiously on his right shoulder, elbow and wrist, which have given him problems in the past. If he doesn't have time to finish them before games, Thome stays late to complete them.

That's what I was referring to.
