In case you were wondering what’s the latest with strength and conditioning…

State of the art, baby.

Or maybe the pit just needed cleaning.

UPDATE:  Let’s check the tape.

I can’t wait to hear the explanation.

    Joe T, incentivizing speedy recoveries one sand pit at a time.

    That’s fucking idiotic. Jesus what’s wrong with us. This isn’t Rocky IV where you work out doing chores in the snow to get it shape. There are honest to god scientific strength and conditioning methods out there that people a hell of a lot smarter than Joe T have studied. At some point we need to get our head out of our asses.

      Or out at least out of the sand.

      Well honestly you never know when they may need to wield a pickaxe during a game. So makes total sense.

      I’m guessing there’s more purpose to this than merely S&C.

      • Bulldog Joe

        Correct.

        They are putting an end to the green jersey goldbricking which had grown out-of-control in the past several years.

        Another good sign the culture is changing.

          Joe T decides to not let Pruitt get all the credit for being a hardass

          +1 It is to make sure that the player has less fun being hurt than in practicing football. Rome seems to be one of those perpetual nagging injury guys that thinks his 5 star rating combined with one good year will get him in the pros. In short the coaches must think he is lazy, so let’s not let him just stand around..

      its more about functional strength, flexibility and conditioning. Think crossfit type of training, this type of training has been used for years and it works.

    Just a thought from a south GA farm boy, but swinging a pick axe in a sand pile ain’t much in the way of hard work! Now if they had him busting up some of that Athens clay I’d say he was getting after it but this seems on the surface to be an attempt at making a player do something difficult by someone who don’t know what the hell he’s doing. I must say I’m embarrassed if this is what they call work!

    Graphic example that Rome wasn’t built in a day.

  5. Skint

    What do you expect from an ex video coordinator?

  6. Noonan

    Mudcat’s car is buried under there.

    I guess the equipment shed was already being used for something.

    Richt: “If you can’t run, you’ve got to burn calories somehow.”

  9. Nobody took the obvious one? Richt obviously got tired of waiting on money for an indoor practice field. He’s gonna get it one way or another.

    So work has finally started on the new indoor facility.

    This is soooo “The Georgia Way”
