Summer workouts at Penn State

Summer workouts are underway at Penn State with strength and conditioning coach Craig Fitzgerald and his staff.

In a Q&A with the Patriot-News, Fitz explains their weekly schedule. Mondays are their speed day where they do a lot of NFL combine prep, Tuesdays are interval days, where players have to make the drill in a certain time, Thursdays are a hybrid day working on both speed and conditioning, and Friday the team is split up into 12 groups and they compete with each other through an agility circuit, with the winners at the end of the summer getting a steak dinner.

The clip shows some good drills for resistance work on a hill, as well as in a sand pit.
