Penn State has a weight room you couldn't imagine in your wildest dreams. One of the first things strength and conditioning coach Craig Fitzgerald did when he arrived at State College was demand that the weight room see a drastic improvement. He began putting together a design that was unveiled last season to Nittany Lion players.
If you have yet to see it, you are in for a treat. Fitzgerald takes us on a five minute tour that covers all of the bases, via State College.
The room is a spacious 13,000 square feet, enough where even the biggest offensive linemen can have plenty of elbow room. The power racks are customized and every bar ball you can imagine comes with a safety catcher that will prevent any freak accidents. Oh, and you better believe that every weight in the building is labeled "We Are Penn State." Anything else would be uncivilized.
It also features surround sound to help pump the guys up to some of the latest jams. There are computer monitors plastered on the wall that let everybody know what the coaches want each day as far as certain exercises and reps are concerned.
