WATCH: Georgia football players show off impressive workout skills while on spring break
It’s pretty clear Kirby Smart and strength and conditioning coach Scott Sinclair had a challenge for Georgia football players over spring break. They wanted to see players do more while on their spring break, as football practice resumes this coming week.
And based off what a number of Georgia players put out on social media, they did. All week long, Georgia players showcased their workouts during their “off” week, from doing ladders on the beach to climbing ropes in the gym.
And it wasn’t just the walk-ons or the star players who took up the challenge. From players like Jake Skole to Nolan Smith — the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2019 recruiting cycle — a lot of them showed off their workouts. And almost no one posted the same workout.
Below we’ve compiled some of the best social media posts from the week from Georgia football players:

Sinclair and Smart both took notice over the course of the week as well, as the two often gave recognition to the workouts done by their players.

This was a pretty cool initiative to show off what Georgia players are like outside the confines of practice or traditional weight training. Fans love a good workout hype video, but seeing guys post their workouts from their individual accounts does give fans a little more insight and access to Georgia football players.
The Bulldogs return to the field this week as their spring practice period begins. The Bulldogs will hold 15 practices, culminating in the G-Day game.
Georgia’s spring game will take place on April 20, with a kickoff time set for 2 p.m. ET. This will be the next time Georgia fans are able to see their favorite players and coaches in Sanford Stadium.
