A frigid morning couldn’t stop these future first rounders from dominating the turf. 6 PAX showed up for Coach Combine’s Combine.
Did a little extra stretching for the events given the sprinting involved. New whistle in tow, The Thang went down approximately as follows:
40-yd Dash: Plank holds for 1 min. + 40-yd sprint + 5 burpees + recover X5
Vertical Jump: 200 squat jumps with partner
20-yd Shuttle: Bear crawl 5 yds + 5 merkins, switch directions, crawl bear 10 yds + 10 merkins, switch directions, bear crawl 5 yds + 5 merkins X5
Standing Broad Jump: 40-yd broad jumps + 5 burpees X2
Benchpress: Single release merkins, last man left counting wins
Threw in some crowdsourced Mary.
It was an epic day on the football field. If I had to build a team, these men would be on it. We didn’t set any records for speed, but we made up for it with heart. Challenged the guys to look inward today. If each of us were under scrutiny by a scout, what would they highlight as our pros and cons? Take a look at your con list, is it something you can change? Let’s hold each other Accountable.
Coffeeteria followed, plenty of mumble chatter about American football and futbol.
