Caution. The above video may cause you to run to the gym for some curls and mirror flexing.
I’m only half kidding.
Meet Oregon football’s strength and conditioning coordinator, Aaron Feld. You’ve probably already seen his mustache. But have you heard of Flex Friday?
During the last 10 minutes of every Friday workout, the Ducks head to the mirror with a curl bar or dumbbells for biceps and triceps. Shirts come off and Feld captures the moment to share on Twitter. Feld says the team loves it so much he has to kick players out of the weight room to stay within NCAA offseason workout guidelines.
“Flex Friday is optional and so is winning the Pac-12 championship,” said Feld. “99.99 percent of the time, you have 100 percent of the guys in here.”
"Flex Friday" is a small part of the infectious energy Feld has brought to the Oregon weight room. He just introduced his new "45 day challenge" where he challened all football coaches to get mentally and physically prepared for kickoff with 100 bicep and tricep reps every day.
Feld came to Oregon from the University of Georgia, where he spent the previous three years as the assistant director of strength and conditioning.
Feld and UO coach Mario Cristobal have ties that go back to 2013. Feld was a volunteer strength coach while Cristobal served as assistant head coach, offensive line coach, and recruiting coordinator at the University of Alabama.
Here are some of his best moments on social media:
