Ben will gain the weight back after the season starts. I think he feels like once he gets knocked around, he deserves to eat and drink whatever he wants. Bettis always did the same thing: trim down coming into camp, but blow up once the season starts. Win a ring and I don't care.

Velocity is up for Roethlisberger

FRIDAY, 16 AUGUST 2013 WRITTEN BY RAY FITTIPALDO

Coming off a shoulder injury that forced him to miss three games last season, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wanted to try some different training methods during the offseason that would help him strengthen his right arm.

So Roethlisberger eschewed his usual routine in the weight room and did some cross-training, including kayaking throughout the spring and summer.

The results have been very positive through the first three weeks of training camp. Roethlisberger said Friday his velocity has improved from last season.

“My arm feels a lot stronger,” he said. “It feels like I get the ball down the field with better zip. Even the receivers and coaches say the same thing. To me, that was what was most important, making sure my arm stayed strong.

“For me, with my injury last year with my shoulder and chest area, I wanted to get my arm strength up and get stronger. I did different things. Things that are not traditional, but the receivers and coaches say my velocity has gone up, so that’s a good thing.”

Roethlisberger also said there have been no issues during camp with his right knee after surgery forced him to miss some time during minicamp in June.

“It feels really good,” he said. “Obviously, standing on it a lot and running on it can wear you down a little bit, but no setbacks and nothing negative.”

Is he drinking his beer with just his right arm to get that extra workout? Or does he switch back and forth? Or does he have a beer in each hand and alternate? Personally I would rather exercise with a beer in the right hand and a piece of pizza in the left.

Agree completely with Roethlisberger on that. Health of first-team OL key for the #Steelers.
