Michael Phelps helps Aaron Maybin gain weight

New York Jets v Washington Redskins

Michael Phelps has said that he’s planning to retire from swimming after the Summer Olympics and that means he’ll need to find another career path to fill his days. You might not expect it, but Phelps might have a future as a trainer for NFL players looking to add weight to their frames.
Jets linebacker Aaron Maybin lives near Phelps in Baltimore and spent some time with the swimmer this offseason to get a look at his famous 12,000 calorie a day eating regimen. Maybin wasn’t planning on consuming quite that much, but he was interested in adding some weight to his frame before the 2012 season.
The idea is to get big enough to stay on the field for three downs after making an impact for the Jets as a situational pass rusher last season.
