CHICAGO (CBS) — Illinois football players have gotten creative with their at-home workouts. Yes, including bench pressing parents and basketball hoops. Their strength and conditioning coach Lou Hernandez has been encouraging them, and sharing the videos on his Twitter feed. Hinsdale Central alum and Illini senior offensive lineman Doug Kramer got in on the act in a big way.
Kramer adds that he’s been ready to get to Champaign since the pandemic started. He says he and his teammates are pumped up and ready to get back to work. Illinois football players will be allowed to return to campus for individual workouts as early as June 3rd, but will be quarantined and tested before workouts with coaches can resume.
