First-team All-Big Ten defensive tackle Anthony Zettel apparently has unorthodox training methods during the offseason.

The Penn State Nittany Lion showed off the strength in his 6'4", 278-pound frame by tackling a tree to the ground. The most impressive part might be the fact he didn't hurt himself trying to do so.

With 17 tackles for loss, eight sacks and three interceptions last season for Penn State, it seems there's not a lot Zettel can't do.
