In January, Lewis Caralla was named the new head strength and conditioning coach for the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Judging by a recent video from Ragin' Cajuns offensive lineman Ethan Rosenbalm, it looks like Caralla is already running a pretty tight ship:

Yes, that was Caralla barking out orders while he used his own players as a human bridge. Wall Sits are a great drill to build lower-body endurance and mental toughness, which is exactly what a football team needs to close out games. But doing them with a plate on your thighs while you belt out your fight song and your strength and conditioning coach marches across your lap? That's one helluva way to finish a workout.
It seems like Caralla is motivated to help turn around a UL-Lafayette football team that finished 4-8 in 2015, and the players look like they're buying in. Just look at how they storm into the weight room in this video Caralla posted earlier this off-season:
