Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden explained to the media on the last day of minicamp in June that he was confident the players would continue to get themselves ready for the upcoming season by hitting their training regimens hard.
“The players…they have to continue to train and work on their own,” Gruden said. “They should be in good shape but we’re still going to keep in touch, close contact with our strength coaches. They’ll have programs for them and hopefully they will do their work.
“It’s about working not so much in front of your coaches, but on your own, and hopefully we have the type of guys in this locker room that are going to work hard on their own and hopefully it’ll pay dividends once we come to camp.”
Since Coach Gruden isn’t a member of the Twitterverse, Redskins Blog would like to fill him–and the rest of Redskins Nation–in on what the players have been doing to stay in shape.
Quarterback Robert Griffin III has been all over social media showing teammates and opponents how a top quarterback in the NFL trains.
