The NFL stars cut a hole in a frozen lake and relaxed in the ice-cold water on Thursday.

“Recovery.” the Steelers star posted to his Twitter.

“post-workout recovery. (more like second workout, after the chainsaw wouldn’t work),” said J.J., who signed with the Arizona Cardinals this offseason.

JuJu Smith-Schuster’s offseason training also went to a different level. In a video posted to his Instagram page, JuJu was playing tug of war with a lion.
