Get Fit with the Bison

Pg. 28 – Take a step inside the NDSU weight room in the first Bison Illustrated of the year as the Bison strength staff shows us what it takes to get fit with the Bison. Think student-athletes lift like you and me? You got it all wrong, man. Hundreds of student-athletes at NDSU cycle in and out of the weight room every day inside the SHAC with each sport having their own unique workout every day. For example, did you know the football team spends as much time strengthening their neck muscles as they do on any other part of their body?

Pg. 56 – Wrestling strength and conditioning coach Ryan Napoli puts our editor through the hardest conditioning workout of his life.

Pg. 60 – You’ve probably seen that guy on the NDSU football sideline with a big chest, massive arms and glorious beard. His name is Ryan Napoli, and we talk to him about his journey to NDSU.

Pg. 68 – The NDSU strength and conditioning coaching tree is growing by the year. Find out where every former coach has landed after learning under the tutelage of Jim Kramer.

Pg. 72 – “Where Are They Now?” Nic Obey used to smash baseballs for NDSU. Now he’s strengthening student-athletes at Georgia Southern University.
