Don’t let anyone ever tell you candy isn’t good for an athlete in training.
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has put his love of Skittles to good use in a new commercial.
The video shows Lynch using a bag of Skittles hanging in front of him as motivation while he uses an exercise bike before the grand finale, where he lifts a barbell with containers of Skittles on each end as the weights.
Lynch has referred to Skittles as his “power pellets” that he has eaten before games since he was playing Pop Warner football as a kid.

So really, this may be captured footage of an actual workout rather than a planned commercial.
