Are you ready for some football? 

We know we are. That's why we got one of the biggest names (both for his dominance on the field and his off-field antics) to grace the cover of our October football issue. We caught up with New England Patriots All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski at his home in Buffalo, NY along with his fellow NFL-drafted brothers Dan and Chris. There, they let us into their inner sanctum to watch them train in their garage gym and goof off the way only brothers can.

But even though the Gronkowskis want it to be all about them, we also put the spotlight on some other big names in the league. There's hardly a player in the NFL who doesn't prioritize strength training, and this year's Strength Team honors those who have taken this edict to heart. Find out who made the cut and what training regimen they credit with their explosive strength.

Plus six weeks of HIIT, a muscle-building back routine, four former Mr. Olympias share their champion workouts and all the other definitive training and nutrition advice you can only get in Muscle & Fitness. Get the October issue, on newsstands now!
