Redskins' receivers to join Donovan McNabb for "hell week"

Posted by Michael David Smith on July 18, 2010 12:40 PM ET

The Redskins will open training camp in Ashburn, Virginia, on July 29, but Donovan McNabb and some of his teammates are getting a head start.

Rick Maese of the Washington Post reports that receivers Devin Thomas, Santana Moss and Malcolm Kelly are among the players who have accepted McNabb's invitation to spend this week in Arizona for an intense series of workouts in the desert heat.

"I think it's important for the specialists on the offense to have that chemistry, to have that bond," McNabb said, "where they can trust me and I can trust them."

McNabb calls the workouts -- which he also did with teammates in Philadelphia -- "hell week."

"It's a different mindset," McNabb said. "I prepare guys the way I prepare."

For some players, a week of relaxation might make more sense than a week of hell right before the start of camp, but Thomas is among those expressing excitement at the opportunity to get extra work in.

"Can't nothing but good come out of the situation when you go out and work out with your quarterback before the season starts," Thomas said. "It's a great time to build that chemistry without the coaches being there. You just get a little of that extra bonding time to lead into training camp."

Oh hell to the **** yeah!

If that doesn't work, I'd suggest searching within that web site for "McNabb".

Now people can stop *****ing about Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly being too lazy to work out with McNabb and how they're busts because they didn't produce 1000 yard years with poor coaching and spotty QB play.

I'm excited to see DT blow up this year and I also expect Kelly to develop into a nice redzone threat.

Ahh awesome. When I heard that Devin Thomas was working out with Ochocinco I was pissed, cause, why not just work with McNabb? This is great news and really shows what a turnaround this offseason has already been.

Also, working out in Arizona is NOT FUN. Haha, so major props to those guys for putting the work in.

So this is what a leader does...

I wonder if any te or rb are attending?

"McNabb invited the Redskins' receivers, tight ends and running backs to Arizona to take part in his regular offseason workout program."

Doesn't say whether they accepted or not, though...

Better yet, go to the actual story by Rick Maese at the WP.

This what has me drinking the :koolaid:.....

The Redskins' players were expected to land in Phoenix Sunday with an itinerary waiting for them. The week was expected to begin with an early wake-up call and the players reporting each morning to Fischer Sports, the 20,000-square foot workout facility where McNabb does most of his offseason training.

There, Brett Fischer, McNabb's trainer, will lead the group through workouts and exercises nearly identical to the ones the quarterback does during the offseason.

"For them, I think it's an eye-opener what we're doing," said Fischer, whose resume lists him as a physical therapist, an athletic trainer and a strength-and-conditioning specialist. "I think it's an eye opener for them, comparing themselves with their quarterback, with how hard he's working out here. To me, it's him telling them, 'Hey, I'm taking this thing seriously to the next level. Let's go to the next level.'"

The daily routine focuses on the athlete's core -- abdominals, the lower back, gluteal muscles and hips -- and involves everything from traditional weights to resistance bands. Fischer likes to focus on balance, flexibility, joints and areas that most athletes tend to ignore in their regular workouts.

The group also will spend plenty of time on cardio, running steep hills in the desert heat until they finally take a break in the early afternoon.

"People, when they come in here and they see what he does, they're shocked," Fischer says. "They go, 'Man, he pays attention to every little detail in the workout.' And he's here from 8 o'clock until 10'clock. They go, 'I didn't realize he worked this hard. I didn't realize he had all the flexibility, all the core, all the lifting, all the things done for his body.'"
