WATCH: Indiana endures heavy training in the summer sun
We're tired just watching this.
Though they went decades without doing it, in the past 10 years, it's nothing new that college athletes are conditioning year-round -- and harder than ever.
Still, it's always eye-opening to get a glimpse of the training they endure. Playing D-I is practically a 365-days-a-year gig. From schoolwork to games to practice ... and all that training. The offseason is the most grueling. As you can see in the video above, Indiana is using a litany of techniques to improve conditioning.
The sideways tire shuffle dealio seems particularly not fun. Doing lunges while holding 45-pound weights also isn't enticing. I was preparing to head to my gym for a quick weightlifting session in a few here, but it seems practically worthless by comparison when watching what Yogi Ferrell and Co. are doing. The GoPro viewpoint is a nice touch, too.
Indiana failed to make the NCAA Tournament last year, going 17-15 and losing freshman Noah Vonleh to the NBA lottery. The Hoosiers should have a solid bounce-back year, and you can't blame them for lack of prep. The Big Ten is going to be very interesting next season, too.
