Dmitry Orlov goes through insane workout in Russia originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

The 2020-21 NHL season is still at least weeks away from starting, but that hasn't stop Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov from getting ready for Washington's next campaign.

Back in his native country of Russia, Orlov was filmed going through an insane workout on Wednesday.

Bundled up to combat for frigid temperatures, the 29-year-old was captured doing single-leg jumps, broad jumps and a whole flurry of other jumping exercises. 

But the best part of it all? Orlov's workout wasn't in a fancy gym or training facility. The defenseman literally was working out in the middle of an uphill street.

Take a look:

Orlov has been durable for Washington and one of the team's best defenseman over the past five years. He hasn't missed a game since he was called up from the Hershey Bears full-time in 2015.

The defenseman is under contract for the Capitals for the next three seasons after signing a six-year extension in the summer of 2017.
