If you want to know why American sport is still lightyears ahead of the rest of the world, just watch this mental training video.

While British part-timers might be going for a little jog and doing a few stretches to get ready for the new season, this US college football team jumped it up a few notches.

Even though Auburn Tigers aren't a professional NFL outfit, they're taking their pre-season gym preparations very seriously indeed.

The strength and conditioning work of these college athletes is next level. This video has left us wondering what the hell's in the water down in Alabama.

They're working on power generation with kettlebell swings and squat cleans on the Olympic bar. Then there's the core strength work with Turkish get-ups and weighted pistol squats. Not to mention the pure, brute strength with weighted pull-ups and band-resisted deadlifts.

This lot mean business. Good luck to the team facing the Tigers on the opening day of the football season.

You can see how all this strength and power work translates when you see the athletes beasting the sprint drills and hitting ridiculous heights on the plyometric jumps.

We've got some catching up to do.
