Tamba Hali Has Some Curious Workouts


‘Tamba Time’ is something I will never view the same way again.

Tamba Hali, the guy who is supposedly overweight, posted a picture via his Twitter account which would suggest he not, in fact, overweight. To demonstrate this he decided to hang out on some dude’s feet. Or something like that.

I really do not know what to do with this image in my head. First, my thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the man who I’m assuming eventually got crushed under the weight of Hali. I’m certain he was a great man.

Second, apparently Tamba Hali has a great second career as a ballet dancer or Yoga instructor. I will say I’m a bit concerned for his rapping career after what this photo may do to his street cred. I could be wrong given that I am not an expert on street cred or sway or whatever those silly kids call it now. But it would seem to me this isn’t the kind of thing that wins you points on the streets.

Feel free to turn this photo into a caption contest if you’d like.

  • Calchiefsfan

    Are Tambi and the Chiefs preparing for him to put a hand in the dirt and line up next to Poe in some packages? I’m picturing a 2-3-5 D with Poe and Tambi at the line and Houston, Johnson and Ford behind them. Who ya gonna double team with that lineup? You really are going to need 8 lineman to stop them.

    • tmahawk

      id say 1-5-5 is gonna happen more often. cant wait!!!

  • Blaize Richardson

    Do me a favor go into a Gracie academy or really any jiu-jitsu academy and tell them that their workouts are weird.

    • Rich Cooper

      Yeah, I’m guessing not to many of us arm chair quarterbacks is signing up for that mission. Of course if your brain damaged going in how much more damage could be done? Broken arm and/or legs aside. No thanks!

    • berttheclock

      Until I read this, I did not know there is a new Renzo Gracie Academy in North Portland, Oregon.

  • Reggie Flenory

    I just hope this translates into 12 sacks i could care less how weird it loooks lmao

  • James E. Deckard

    Thought that was Terry Crews at first. Not sure why. Probably the facial expression.

  • Michael Shaw

    Wait………is that THE GRACIE family???? And to those that apparently didn’t notice, Tamba’s gut should be flat in that pose, not……….well, the way it is….just sayin……Although I really wish I looked like that when people are calling me fat!!! LOL!!

  • steve james

    He has been working with them for a long time. He had some good youtube videos of what they put him through too.

    It would be nice that those who posted or wrote articles about Hali being fat had the guts to publicly retract what they said. It is fine the Chiefs drafted Ford, he may have to replace Houston anyway but it was pretty trashy to try to justify the pick on Hali’s back.

  • tmahawk

    has to do with balance and flexibility. Tamba I’m your #1 fan. but I hope you learn from what happened to Flowers. I want you a chief for life.

  • ChiefPhil34

    I feel as though you must play the Steve Miller Band’s Fly like an Eagle while looking at this photo

  • calciomoti

    I have even more respect for this man now.

    Any of you don’t understand this type of training have obviously never done it. But, if it is not in the realm of something you would like to attempt, I understand, if it’s a lifestyle, nit a hobby.

    Watch a show called “Wheel of life” you may get a better understanding, when you see a young man doing this on the tips of spears instead of another man’s feet…
