"This is all about football and sweating and getting into shape. It's a mixture of about seventy football exercises and drills.

"It's a lot of the drills that we do in preparation to get ready for our season that you can now do in the comfort of your home. They went out there, they've asked all the strength coaches, they've asked the trainers on how they prepare and they put it in the game.
