As training camp goes on, Titans center Brian Schwenke is here to give Titans fans an inside look at what training camp is like for an NFL player.
Entry #1 – A new home for the next month
Yesterday we had the conditioning test. You know it’s something you’re kind of anxious about. Even though you train for it in that month off that we have, you’re still anxious because you still have to make your time. There’s nerves but I got it done and felt good, but then the nerves come back before the first day of practice.
When I got to the team hotel, I was hoping that I didn’t have a roommate. Some guys have them and some guys don’t, and I have no idea how it works. The whole day I was waiting to find out whether I had a roommate or not. I love Chance [Warmack,], but you could get Chance who snores. So clearly it can be challenging with a roommate sometimes to get your beauty rest. Luckily, there was only one bed in my room so I was able to get a good night’s sleep.
There is another big downside to the hotel though. One thing I invested in when I got to the NFL was the nicest bed I could get, and so there’s no hotel bed that’s going to be as comfortable as my bed at home. It’s a small thing, but I was a little stiff this morning. The struggle is real.
Now that practice is rolling it’s all about getting a routine. I have to ice tub after and use the foam roller so when I take the field I feel as good as I possibly can.
