"I'm just trying to get as fit as I can and muscles as big as I can this pre-season to make sure I'm playing the best footy I can," Kevin Proctor jokes.
After a gruelling training session in Gold Coast summer heat, Proctor was all smiles when talking about taking on the lead up to another NRL season.
"I think it is my 14th (pre-season)," Proctor said.
The 31-year-old is about to enter his fifth season as a Titan after nine years with the Melbourne Storm.
Asked if he was treating 2020 as his last, Proctor was quick to shut down any talk suggesting he was slowing down.
"I think I've got plenty to give and the body is still feeling good and mentally I'm still competing at training and enjoying myself.
"I'm really enjoying my time here, especially under Justin.
"I'm just really enjoying my footy at the moment.
"I'm in a good head space and this is a good group of boys to be around, they make me feel young again."
Proctor had a huge finish to the 2020 season, with many experts suggesting he was playing some of the best football of his NRL career.
The New Zealand international says he expects his game to improve even further in 2021, with young talent including representative forwards David Fifita and Tino Fa'asuamaleaui joining the Titans.
"There is plenty of competition for spots which keeps you on your toes," Proctor said.
Asked to name his preferred position in the side given the fight for back-row positions, Proctor made it clear he just wants to be part of what the Gold Coast are building.
"It (playing left or right side) doesn't really matter to be honest," he said.
"I'll play on the wing if they want me to, I can play left or right, I'll play halfback if they want me to.
"I just want to be amongst it."
