With Penn State football's winter workouts well underway, we made our way to the Lasch Building this week for an inside look at max squat day.
Let Boobie Squat, Coach
The new prince of the Penn State backfield, Miles Sanders, drew an insane amount of attention as he made his way to the squat rack on Wednesday:

Lamont, But on an Elevated Surface
Lamont Wade, the newest Nittany Lion safety following a switch from corner, may be the premier pump-up man of the team.

Reid's Knee Looks Pretty Good
After missing the entire 2017 season with a knee injury, John Reid - Penn State's best corner - is looking good as he tries to re-establish himself as one of the Big Ten's best pass defenders.

Humphries Making Gains
Despite getting to campus less than two months ago and being listed at 191 pounds, true freshman safety Isaiah Humphries showed off just how much stronger he's become since getting to campus.

Simmons Making it Look Easy
A former blue-chip prospect, defensive end Shane Simmons made his weight look easy as he got warmed up before his max out sets.

Part of Penn State's Future, Listening to Future
We've seen wide receiver K.J. Hamler's moves in some of Marcus Allen's postgame videos. If the legendary videos are going to keep happening, it may be the redshirt freshman who keeps the tradition alive.
Confirmed: KJ Hamler is a fan of Future pic.twitter.com/PGcLM3bIc5— Roar Lions Roar (@RLRblog) February 28, 2018
Miller Brings the Juice
One of the guys competing for one of the open linebacker jobs, Jarvis Miller had one of the biggest reactions when he went for a new max weight.
