Strength and conditioning coach Hank Behrens put the Bears through an extensive warm up before starting the workout with a lengthy, endurance building circuit including box jumps, burpies, hurdles, and more.
(Of course, if you follow the Bear Blog on Twitter you already saw a photo and video of this as it happened this morning.)
While the circuit alone would have been an admirable workout for a single day, it merely served as a precursor to the actual weight lifting that was about to begin.
All in all, the Bears were at it for about three hours this morning in the gym and weight room. Reigning national coach of the year Rich Feller certainly is wasting no time in preparing his team to return once again to the Final Four.
Here are some pictures from the Bears workout in the weight room earlier this morning. For more extensive volleyball news, follow the Cal Volleyball account on Twitter.
