I'm curious if this will be another Michael Thomas like situation in which he will be a better pro than collegian. As with everything in the Warriner/Beck era, Brown was mis-utilized.
I use the split squat as well. I've also had some issues that prevents me from barbell squatting so I had to create something to get around that. Check out my DIY flywheel trainer.
I have seen good crossfit and bad crossfit.
1. Putting a barbell in people's hands and making them train with it.
2. Crossfit Games on TV
3. Creating community
1. Making the standard so low to become a level 1 trainer. .
2. Embracing and celebrating the "unless I'm throwing up, I'm not working hard enough" mentality.
3. Using highly technical olympic lifts for high rep conditioning
4. Cookie cutter programming
5. Sagittal plane dominant movements
Thanks, I pulled sumo and was 220 at the time. I wouldn't win any powerlifting contests with those numbers.
Love the field of strength and conditioning. Was pulling 660 pounds which isn't remarkable, but I had to maintain a 3 mile run time (military requirement) which took away from power development. Also, I recently had ACDF of C4-C7 and it has caused me to shift priorities to wellness and fitness. I currently follow a 1x20 program 5 days a week and walk 2 ish miles 5 days a week.
The diet has always and continues to be the nail in my tires. I really enjoy junk food.
If your issue is with low back "tightness", it's likely an anterior/posterior imbalance. Check out Joe DeFranco's Limber 11:
While I'm against sport specialization in high school, we should be careful in drawing broad conclusions from this. NFL draftees have freakish levels of general athleticism that would afford them the ability to be good at many sports.
I welcome all these updates with "Open Arms".
As a strength and conditioning guy, I love the combine. Either your training worked, or it didn't. As a metric for future success as a football player, it has its flaws. A 2011 study found that the biggest predictor of success in the NFL was............collegiate success. That being said, I think the combine serves as a confirmation for what is on game film. An NFL player is the most "generally skilled" athlete. They have to call on a lot of skills often in a short amount of time. While Zeke and Bosa didn't make the record books, they performed well in a general sense.
Sneakers. Loved it as a kid. Still love it now.

In n Out is the best balance of price and taste. 7 bucks for a double double animal style with animal style fries and a drink.
The skipping breakfast study is a bit flawed. It still comes down to total calories consumed. The new-ish (last 4 or 5 years) trend in diet is called intermittent fasting. There are several types of IF, but basically you limit your eating by time. The most well known for is 16/8 IF. You fast for 16 hours and eat in an 8 hour window, normally breaking their fast later in the day (noon or later). This type of diet isn't for everyone, but it does increase glucose sensitivity and is extremely helpful for type 2 diabetics.
Skipping breakfast ain't killing anyone.
John Glenn's response to Howard Metzenbaum's accusation that he'd never had a job.
"I've spent 23 years in the United States Marine Corps. I lived through two wars. I flew 149 missions. My plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire on twelve different occasions. I was in the space program. It wasn't my checkbook, it was my life that was on the line. It was not a nine-to-five job where I took time off to take the daily cash receipts to the bank.
I ask you to go with me, as I went the other day, to a Veterans Hospital and look those men, with their mangled bodies, in the eye and tell them they didn't hold a job. You go with me to any Gold Star mother and you look her in the eye and tell her that her son did not hold a job.
You go with me to the space program, and go as I have gone to the widows and orphans of Ed White and Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee, and you look those kids in the eye and tell them that their Dad didn't hold a job.
You go with me on Memorial Day coming up and you stand in Arlington National Cemetery, where I have more friends than I'd like to remember, and you watch those waving flags. You stand there, and you think about this nation, and you tell me that those people didn't have a job.
I'll tell you, Howard Metzenbaum, you should be on your knees every day of your life thanking God that there were some men - some men - who held a job. And they required a dedication to purpose and a love of country and a dedication to duty that was more important than life itself. And their self-sacrifice is what made this country possible.
I have held a job, Howard."
Don't argue. Just accept that the illuminati want Ohio State to win and Michigan to lose.
KMP, I normally would agree with you. Tigers can't change their spots, etc. But the 2010 Rose Bowl is a recent exception I can remember. The vest and TP came out slinging it which was something that was missing during the regular season. Not saying all the ills of pass protection/passing game will be fixed in 30 days, buy I'm not not saying it either.
I recently had my spine fused. I told the doc I would not leave the hospital while on opiates. Two days post surgery, I left the hospital with a prescription for 15 oxycodones. 7 days later at my check up, I left the office with another prescription for 15 oxycodones. A month later, the doc asked if I needed any more oxycodone. In a 30 day period I could've had 45 oxycodones or more if I had wanted them. I never filled them because I know myself. I took tylenol and ibuprofen and was for the most part comfortable.
This was at Walter Reed Military Medical Center where there is now enormous scrutiny as is relates to prescription pain pills. These docs need to be a bit more judicious when doling out these prescriptions. As patients we need to realize that discomfort is okay sometimes.
I rewatched that play a few times. Seemed to be a bang/bang hit. Worley had started his tackle as Clement was going down. I don't think there was ill intent other than the normal ill intent within the confines of the game.
Louisville. My in-laws are obnoxious Kentucky fans (is there another kind?) so I really like it when they lose at any and everything. I also pull for Charlie Strong because of the Louisville connection, so I hope Texas rights the ship. Had a friend who was a Utah fan so I kind of pull for them. Had another friend who was a FSU fan, so I hope they lose every game. I know too many USNA grads (Marine) so I can't root for them like others can. Plus, I hate that Navy's athletic department is run differently than Army's as it relates to funding which gives them an enormous advantage.

Odds of tearing ACL 1:1750. Once you have an ACL tear, odds of reinjuring repaired knee or the opposite healthy knee increase to 1:33.
I think they should be banned. Not because I care about PEDs, but because failing a drug test at that level is like failing a stupidity test. PEDs are way out in front of testing. If you don't update, change, or adhere to the protocols to beat the tests, you deserve to be on the outside looking in.
Impressive. If you took the balance component out of it by using a dumbbell, I'm sure he could toss 30-40 pounds more. But there's only a few of us who need 200 pound dumbbells. *flexes, pulls a muscle*
