Clemson football players are set to begin voluntary summer workouts
Clemson football players have been off-campus for nearly three months as they quarantined during the current pandemic.
Just a couple of weeks ago, the NCAA Board of Governors approved football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball players being able to come back to campus to begin working out at the University’s discretion. Shortly after that, Clemson announced that its athletes would be able to return to campus and begin working out following a period of social distancing and testing.
The Clemson football team is set to begin voluntary workout sessions officially on June 8th. Tigers who aren’t already on campus will join shortly and by the end of this month, the expectation is that the entire team will be working out and going through summer sessions as they normally would.
Summer grind leads to fall shine for the Clemson football team
Though there are still many questions surrounding how Clemson football will handle crowds in Death Valley and what testing procedures will look like nationally once the season begins, the voluntary workouts are a great signal to Tiger fans that the season is on track to be played.
Players gain weight and lose weight in the summer. They get faster during the summer. They can become better or worse in the summer. These workouts are instrumental to player development and it’s something that we simply can’t emphasize enough.
It will be interesting to see what transformations are made during this shortened summer workout period and what things look like as we inch closer to the presumed start of the College Football season.
