When the San Francisco 49ers were making a run in this weekend's NFC Championship game, outspoken Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman stopped the 49ers' drive by making a play in the end zone on a ball thrown to 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree.

After the game, Sherman famously declared that he's the best cornerback in the NFL. Regardless of his post-game interview choice of words, with the season Sherman has had, it's tough to disagree with the Stanford alumnus.

Sherman shared his workout routine with NFL.com in the early part of the season.

While Sherman shared just one of his workouts with NFL.com, he displayed his sports-specific training (back pedaling, ladder footwork), strength work (deadlifts, leg press, power cleans) - along with how he works on his explosive movements (box jumps, hill sprints with a weight vest, reverse medicine ball tosses).

Sherman's approach to training is to set a goal. When training, he said that his goal is,

To win. My goals are to win and will always be to win.

In terms of putting in hard work, Sherman gives the following advice,

It's important to always push yourself - even in the offseason. Your mind tells you [that] you have limits, your body doesn't necessarily have those limits.

He adds, that while not everyone is born with equal talent, "everyone is born with the ability to work hard as you can - the ability to go as long for as you can and push your body to the limits."
