Within the complex is U of L's state-of-the-art, 8,500 square foot weight room. According to the PJCS web site, "Cardinal football players train with the best equipment available, including 20,000 pounds of free weights, a full line of Hammer strength equipment, power rack stations, Olympic lifting platforms with Eleiko bumper plates and upper body pressing stations."
Now I didn't understand any of that, but I'm certain Charlie Strong does, and I'm even more certain his view is that having a modern and well-stocked facility is critical to the success of the football program. The PJCS web site says as much:
In the highly competitive world of collegiate football, the off-field
preparation of the student-athlete is one of the most important aspects in
building a successful program on the field. At the University of Louisville,
Cardinal football players are fortunate to train in a state-of-the-art facility
at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.
