Bob Quinn made game preparation a priority during his first few months as the Detroit Lions new general manager. Wasting no time, Quinn overhauled nearly the entire strength and conditioning department back in his first few weeks on the job. But he didn't stop there. He also hired a full-time dietitian and gave the Lions' fitness center a much-needed facelift.

On Tuesday, the Lions players took notice to all of the changes in the workout regimen:

Earlier in the year, the Lions hired Harold Nash as the team's new strength and conditioning coach. Nash is a well-respected mind in the world of football conditioning, having played the game himself back in the CFL during the 90s. Nash isn't exactly known for overworking his players. Panthers defensive tackle Kyle Lovewho spoke glowingly of Nash, said the strength coach "doesn't overdo the whole lifting/running process." That being said, Aqib Talib once said of Nash, "He had the workouts, man. He knew what he was doing. Great routine."

Lions players seem to agree.
