Great article on the off season conditioning regimen of the Patriots. Read the whole article. The last paragraph is particularly interesting. http://www.patriots.com/news/index.cfm?ac=latestnewsdetail&pid=20633&pcid=41 "It's March 2006, just two months after the Patriots' final game of the 2005 season, and Gillette Stadium looks as far away from football as a football stadium gets. With the parking lots mostly empty and the goalposts in storage, the only reminders that the stadium is home to the three-time Super Bowl champions are the three banners hanging in the southeast corner and the muffled sounds emanating from the Patriots' weight room. Through the stadium's cinderblock walls observant employees can hear blaring music interrupted by the sharp sounds of clanging weights and the laughter of players. Months from the start of training camp, the preparation for the 2006 season has already begun."
