During this exercise, each player rotates through various stations that involve the lifting, pushing or pulling of weights, while other stations require short sprints, or are dedicated to changing directions quickly.

Through the first two workouts, the newcomers were segregated from the rest of the team while they got themselves acclimated and evaluated by team trainers. From all accounts, the rookies did extremely well on their first day with the full team and have impressed the strength and conditioning staff all week.
