Slow cook strength training at Penn State

New Penn State director of strength and conditioning Craig Fitzgerald invited the cameras in the weight room to capture some off season workouts.

Fitzgerald says that they focus on football specific moves, and explosive full range motions concentrating on lifts that put them in football positions with their feet on the ground.

Coach Fitzgerald also referred to the weight program as "slow cooking" the athletes in the respect that they want to focus on getting really good at the lifts, and appeal to the competitive nature in each athlete to bump up in weight as the movements become second nature.
