Larry Fitzgerald Jr. has offered a personalized training camp and workout regime for NFL athletes during the offseason at his home town of Minnesota since 2009. Several Vikings players have attended the event in the past, and 2013 has been no different. Except of course that Christian Ponder and Kyle Rudolph both appeared this year, and both of them decided to wear their shirt the whole time, god dammit. Video (maybe?) after the jump. Larry Fitzgerald Jr. likes to get out of the hot Arizona sun during the summer months, and frequently returns to Minnesota. During his time here he runs a short pre-training camp practice for any football player who wants to attend. He runs them through a gambit of workouts and tests, helping athletes prepare themselves for the grueling season. Minnesota Vikings players Christian Ponder and Kyle Rudolph attended these sessions this year, but son of a *****, they both wore their shirts the whole time. If the video above works (if not, just follow this link), you can see footage taken from KSTP.com showing the three football players going through an intense retinue of activities, all aimed at preparing their body for the NFL season and building chemistry with teammates. You'll also notice that neither Christian Ponder OR Kyle Rudolph decided to take their shirts off in this footage, and that is just garbage, utterly insulting. Both Vikings players were at the Tuesday session, getting a quick workout in before heading down to Mankato Thursday to check in for the start of Vikings 2013 training camp. It will likely prove to be a smart decision, as this helps the players spend more time together during the offseason, but it's also a real freaking dumb move to not take your shirt off like even ONCE during a workout when a camera is on you. We'll see if it pays off come first Vikings practices on Friday. Probably won't, because they both refused to go the extra mile. Selfish jerks. [follow]
