View Full Profile is training in California during his off-week to get more physical for the long grueling NFL season.
His workout regime with NFL insider Jay Glazer includes hand fighting drills and recovering in a state of the art cryotherapy chamber.
According to wikipedia: Cryotherapy chambers are usually cooled, typically with liquid nitrogen, usually to a temperature of -120 °C (-184 °F)—although temperatures of -140 °C (-220 °F) or even -160 °C (-256 °F) have been used. The patient is protected from acute frostbite with socks, gloves and mouth and ear protection, but in addition to that, wears nothing but a bathing suit. The patient spends a few minutes in the chamber. During treatment the average skin temperature drops to 12 °C (54 °F), while the coldest skin temperature can be 5 °C (41 °F). The core body temperature remains unchanged during the treatment, however it may drop slightly afterwards. Therapy triggers the release of endorphins which induce analgesia (immediate pain relief).
BEWARE NFL defensive backs if Bryant can gain more power with his already large frame and explosive speed.
For the season, Bryant has 16 passes for 321 yards and six touchdowns (five games).
