COSTA MESA – The Los Angeles Chargers held their first practice at the regular-season training facility, the Hoag Performance Center in Costa Mesa late last week.

The team has two 70-yard fields to practice on, along with what coach Anthony Lynn described as side fields for individual player drills. Every meeting room at the facility is “about 20 percent bigger” than at Chargers Park, the team’s former practice facility, Lynn said.

“They’re very nice,” Lynn said. “Technology is really cool. They just did a heck of a job with this building on such a short notice.”

The weight room is also bigger and “built for power,” Lynn said. “We’re trying to get guys stronger and keep them on the field,” Lynn said. “We spent a lot of money on that equipment. The weight room looks good
from top to bottom.”
