Rodriguez, 42, recently shared the morning routine that sets him up for success. It's changed quite a bit since hanging up his Yankees jersey in 2016, he tells CNBC Make It: "When you're playing baseball, you're basically having your largest meal at midnight after the game. You're going to sleep around 1:30 a.m. and you're waking up around 10:30 a.m."
From then, each day was very methodical: "Usually at that time, I would go to the gym, get a workout, ride the bike, get a good stretch, get some PT soft tissue work on my body, go down for a nap, wake up for lunch and then I would go drive to the Bronx to Yankee Stadium and do it all over again.
"We did that 200 times in 232 days."
