A young Dustin Martin spent his childhood playing football with his siblings and writing notes about what he would need to become an AFL superstar.
Now one of the most famous players in the game, the Richmond Tigers midfielder set a practice and diet regime as a boy who would help him become the player he is today.
The note titled & # 39; my fitness routine to become an AFL star & # 39; and included two days of football training and three days of rest at the weekend.
On his days off football training, Martin did push ups, sit ups and laps.
In addition to the fitness schedule, Martin planned to eat Nutri-Grain and Vita Britten for breakfast in combination with a salad roll for lunch and a choice of orange juice or water to drink.
For dinner, he usually just ate what his mother, Kathy, had prepared.
But she told me Herald Sun. both Dustin and her two other boys, Tyson and Bronson, enjoyed providing their bodies with good food.
Kathy said earlier that she knew her middle son was destined to play AFL by the time he was five.

& # 39; As soon as he put a football in his hands … We all knew he was born to play AFL. He only gets better and better and better, and he only gets better next year. & # 39; she said.
He and his brothers – an older and younger person – created an AFL field in their backyard in Yapeen, a 10-minute drive from Castlemaine in regional Victoria.
They lived on three hectares and often changed the building into a football field or cricket field.
In the winter Kathy let the boys play football at home.
& # 39; I didn't care about the walls, they can be repaired and boys have to burn some energy, & # 39; she said.
The 28-year-old was the center of attention this week prior to his major final clash with the GWS Giants after he chose to attend the Brownlow Medals phase for the third consecutive year.
Martin is notoriously private about his relationships and life outside the field – a trait his mother said he has worn since childhood.
She described Martin as a team player who often slid out of the spotlight.

This year Dustin looked typically polished in a classic black suit, which he combined with a black tie.
Inside, he was seen chatting with various other attendees, including his Tigers teammate Josh Caddy.
A source told Daily Mail Australia & # 39; Dustin is very full in his private life. & # 39;
His manager, Ralph Carr, declined to comment when asked about the relationship status of the football player.
