Video: UConn’s Matt Balis Talks About Summer Strength & Conditioning Program

One of things that myself along with Desmond Conner of the Hartford Courant and the other beat writers noticed during spring practice was how different the UConn Huskies football players looked. And by different, I mean slimmed down, toned and some a little more jacked up since we last saw them.

That’s all thanks to UConn director of strength and conditioning Matt Balis whom UConn football coach Bob Diaco has called the best in the country.

Right now, the UConn football players are working out with Balis twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays for two hours starting around 5:45-6 a.m. In the video below, Balis talks about what they are doing as far as the strength and conditioning are concerned.

Video: Down (Almost) Goes Dolson

Last year, it was Stefanie Dolson doing bunny ears to President Obama when the 2013 UConn Huskies National Championship Women’s Basketball team visited the White House. So what would Dolson do for an encore this year when both 2014 National Championship UConn men’s and women’s basketball teams were there?

How about fall off the stage?

Fortunately for her and despite wearing heels, she was able to catch her balance. Of course the President was right there when it all happened.
