There will be no more two-a-day practices. That was a change the NFL players fought for during the lockout to reduce wear and tear on their bodies. However, Conditioning Specialist Bryan Fink says training twice a day does not necessarily cause more injuries.
"Correct form, correct procedures, all the drills are run properly, you're gonna benefit more, practice makes perfect," says Fink.
While that's true for any athlete, he says NFL players should feel even safer because they have access to the best conditioning coaches in football.
"As far as NFL's concerned, the trainers and everybody know what they're doing," says Fink.
However, the players had to workout on their own this offseason due to the lockout. That's why Fink says they need the extra conditioning now more than ever.
"When you have somebody who's in your face, pushing you, you're working harder than you are when you're working by yourself," says Fink.
Fans can see for themselves what kind of shape the Redskins are in when the team holds its first open practice Saturday morning.
