New Bills linebacker/defensive end Trent Murphy's home gym is insane

When Bills free agent outside defensive end/linebacker Trent Murphy arrived in Buffalo and began the process of house hunting, he tweeted looking for suggestions. At the time, he said he he might need a warehouse.

The reason: Murphy has accumulated a massive amount of equipment in his "home gym," although it rivals the equipment and facilities that some teams have.

Murphy remains on the lookout for a spot to live in the Buffalo area.

“I’ve got to find a place to live then this will be home,” he said on "One Bills Live."

The Bills, of course, have a massive gym and recovery area at One Bills Drive. But Murphy takes things a step further.

"I like to have multiple weightrooms," he said. "More is more.

"There’s something about where you lay your head at night and being able to go into the next room and get extra work any time you need it. To have the ability to outwork my opponents all the time even where I rest is a huge advantage. It feels like I have an edge that helps me play with confidence on Sundays."

Among Murphy's acquisition is some equipment that he added from Westside Barbell, where he works out in Columbus. He said one piece is 9 feet, 6 inches tall.

"I always do things over the top," he said, listing the various pieces. He has a sauna but hopes to add an infrared light therapy machine and a hyperbaric chamber.

Murphy noted that recovery is also a big part of his routine. Despite being a Washington Redskins free agent, he was among the players who helped the Redskins develop a new recovery center built at their facility.

“I knew I was going to be a free agent when I first started with the project,” he recently told RedskinsWire. “But I wanted to be part of something that would make the organization better and have a culture shift. I wanted to do something positive for the Redskins. I wanted to help the guys that couldn’t take care of themselves. The pros [on] the team, who take care of their bodies and are true professionals at all times – like [Shawn] Lauvao, [D.J.] Swearinger, [Ryan] Kerrigan, [Chris Thompson] CT and Will [Compton] – are guys who get it. This is to show younger guys that the recovery process is just as important as anything else they do to get better."
