According the Ndamukong Suh’s personal trainer Mike Barwis, when Suh hits the field for training camp, he will be a “physical specimen.”
“Ndamukong is a stud,” said Barwis, “… He trains very, very hard. Guys finish up the workouts, and he’s the guy in there who stays extra to condition beyond what’s demanded of him, and these workouts are pretty hellacious. A guy like that is a pretty unique guy. … He knows what he has to do to be ready, and I think he’s proven that every year he’s been ready.”

Home win would push record to 5-2/Suh fined again
Coming off a win over the Cleveland Browns, the Detroit Lions are looking to get back to business as usual as they take on a talented Cincinnati Bengals team who won a thrilling 27-24 overtime game in Buffalo.
Meanwhile, DT Ndamukong Suh was fined by the NFL a whopping $31,500 for a two hard hits on Bengals QB Brandon Weeden.
“We’re going to aggressively enforce player safety fouls,” Blandino said. “When I looked at the play, I felt that he did make contact with the forehead-hairline. Lowered the head and made contact with the forehead-hairline. Not to the head or neck, but the rule does prohibit that contact to the body.”
Great tickets and seats are still available for this huge match up.
