In advance of Green Bay's voluntary offseason workout program begins on Monday Apr. 16, Packers strength and conditioning coach Mark Lovat spoke to the team's official website on Friday.
Because of the NFL's new Collective Bargaining Agreement, the offseason program is about a month shorter this year than it has been in the past.
“We’re not going to waste their time or ours,” Lovat said. “We’re going to choose protocols that get the most bang for your buck. Your face time with players is always a commodity. We’re constantly thinking about being efficient with our choices and what we’re asking them to do. This CBA forces that even more.”
Players can work strictly on strength and conditioning only for the first two weeks.
