TestingEli 14.2 does off-ice training with his team at a fitness facility near the rink. This is a different place than where he does the private workouts I've mentioned before.
Tonight, they did some fitness testing.
Yeah, you know where this is going, so I don't even need to tell you about the pushup/situp/pull-up numbers. They were all ridiculous, as expected.
They did test something new, though.
"Hey, they tested my grip strength tonight," Eli said.
"I bet that was funny," I said. I am no longer surprised by anything he does.
"The best on the team was 47," he said. "47" what, I don't know.
"What were you?" I asked.
"The coach was 65," he said.
"And what were you?" I asked.
"95," he said, grinning. "Both hands."
