UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The Nittany Lion football team is five weeks from
walking onto the practice field for training camp under the direction of head
coach James Franklin.
For now, though, the team is in the heart of its summer workout program with Director of Performance Enhancement Dwight Galt. Under a new NCAA rule adopted last fall, student-athletes are allowed to participate in preparations for the season during an eight-week period each summer. Those eight weeks can include eight hours per week of required weight training and conditioning. Up to two of the eight hours can consist of film review.
The new NCAA rule enables GoPSUsports.com to take fans inside summer conditioning with the Nittany Lions for the first time. Take a look at a lifting session in the weight room and conditioning on the turf adjacent to the Lasch Football Building during a warm afternoon.
