Suh, McGinest join Lions for final workout session
BEVERLY HILLS — About 30 of the Lions wrapped up their second four-day session of workouts on Friday. They will wait to see how the NFL negotiations go before scheduling another.
For the first time in the eight days defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was present at a workout. He seemed limited in one of the drills involving extending a barbell over his head. Suh did not speak to the Detroit media so don’t know if that was related to his shoulder surgery in January.
Also, NFL Network was on hand filming Willie McGinest, former Patriots linebacker, going through the workout.
“Thank God I was in shape and I was able to do all the stuff. It was a different type of workout, I’ve never experienced something like this with the Art of Strength, it was less football. It was a lot of core, conditioning and getting the heart rate up,’’ McGinest said.
Michael Knight from the Art of Strength and his staff led all eight days of the workouts at the Detroit Country Day fieldhouse.
For the first time this week, the media was allowed to watch the whole workout which was about 75 percent strength workouts and 25 percent football.
The workout will air on the NFL Network at 7 p.m. on Friday (today).
