Miami football strength and conditioning coach David Feeley posted a video earlier this week via the Canes Football Twitter account for workouts you can do from home while quarantined.
Miami football strength and conditioning coach David Feeley posted a five-part workout on the Hurricanes football Twitter account earlier this week. Feeley stated in the video that this was the workout that was sent to players. The reality is likely that this was merely a very small part of what players are expected to do at home.
Feeley began the workout by asking fans to do 25 jumping jacks. The second part encompassed what he called opening the gate, the third exercise was shoulder caps, followed by what sounded like he expected were burpees and concluding with doing as many pushups as you can in 20 seconds.
The conclusion of the video included a special guest doing pushups with Feeley, his son. Feeley, as the rest of the Miami football staff is doing, is working with the Hurricanes players virtually via a program called Zoom that allows meetings online. Feeley has made a big impact in the 14 months since he was hired in January 2019.
Miami cornerbacks coach Mike Rumph talked to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald in an article posted on Thursday and discussed how the Hurricanes players are staying active while not being able to work out with Feeley and the strength and conditioning staff every day.

“We want to make sure they’re doing stuff but not too strenuous. They don’t have the trainers around to do what they do normally with the university, but we’ve given them ideas of what they have to do. Making sure they jog each day, make sure they’re getting some sun…Vitamin D for their immune system…fresh air.”
The 2020 football season will be the 15th Feeley has been in College Football. Prior to Miami, Feeley was the strength and conditioning coach at Temple for two seasons. Feeley connected with Miami head coach Manny Diaz during his 18-day stint as the Owls head coach in December 2018. Diaz then hired Feeley at Miami a month later.
Feeley has previously been the strength and conditioning coach at Ball State who Miami will host in 2024 and the assistant strength and conditioning coach at South Carolina and FIU from 2008-10 under former Miami offensive tackle Mario Cristobal who is now the head coach at Oregon.
