B/R Video@@bleacherreportB/R VideoJune 2, 2014

Offensive tackle Quenton Nelson, a 4-star recruit according to 247Sports, is at it again. This time, he broke two boards with one punch in taekwondo class.

If you don't remember, Nelson is the Notre Dame signee who outbenched some of the top players in this year's NFL draft.

Nelson will enter his freshman year in South Bend in a few weeks, and his summer workout routine is in full swing. According to Nelson and his instructor, Kyong Hoon Kim, taekwondo improves his hand fighting technique—a skill any top offensive tackle needs to excel.

Taekwondo is just one aspect of Nelson's workout regimen. The 6'5", 295-pound freak athlete played on Red Bank Catholic's basketball team and participates in a cross-training program called RYPT.

He also does a more traditional strength and conditioning program with Joe McAuliffe, who has trained many NFL players, including Knowshon Moreno of the Miami Dolphins. 

Look for Nelson and his incredible athletic skill on the field for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish next season.
