McKinnie working with Venus

One of the perks of being a world-class athlete is that you get to take lessons from a world-class athlete in another sport in which you happen to be not so world class (or anything close to it).

I think what I’m trying to say is that it must be cool for Vikings T Bryant McKinnie gets to take tennis lessons from Venus Williams.

You can see in the video below what kind of progress McKinnie makes (he looks out of his element a little bit, but he doesn’t look exactly terrible on the court).



The reason McKinnie is working out with Williams, writes the St. Paul Pioneer Press is because he wants to lower his playing weight from about 360 to about 340 while improving his lateral quickness.

So far, so good.

"One thing I learned with Venus, you have to be ready to work for a long lesson," McKinnie said. "She tires you out."
