freshmen year at 248lbs 27% body fat now my sophomore year at 220lbs with only 9% body fat. Work for what you want. pic.twitter.com/WMTZo9DC7F— Derrick BANE Green (@DG2seven) July 25, 2014
I did not make this headline up
Ver y impressive.
Anyone out there able to calculate how much muscle he has put on based on his current weight and the change in body fat %?
248*27%=67lbs of fat
220*9%=20lbs of fat
47 lbs of fat lost.
248*(1-27%)=181lbs of not-fat
220*(1-9%)=200lbs of non-fat
19 lbs of muscle gained (assuming his bones and organs, etc stayed the same)
Good lord. He could run through a brick wall
He *is* a brick wall.
He is the one who knocks
He looks a good 6 inches shorter... and that's WITH shoes!
No, he's taller. Look at the words on the wall. Maybe they're high-healed cleats.
Camera angles can be very misleading. He's definitely standing farther from the wall in the after picture, which would make him appear larger compared to the wall text and the before picture. He may have grown but not as much as it looks in these pictures, IMO.
I logged in to make this comment. He looks a lot shorter at first. But, then you look at the placement of his head against the words in the wall and he looks a lot taller. I just can't figure out the camera angle.
It had nothing to do with Green getting shorter or taller or camera angles or the cleats on his shoes.
What really happened was that the wall got shorter as the result of Derrick Green running through it repeatedly.
Check again, this time look at his head in relation to the text on the wall. He's like a foot taller!
They re-painted the wall text.
Look, his head barely touches the letters his freshman year. Now he blocks the word.
Suns out guns out
I read "transformation" as "transfer" and almost panicked.
This guy could be his own Fullback.
I totally did the same thing!!
I read the letters t-r-a-n-s-f and the panic meter was already going off.
Gald to see the news is just that he has turned himself in a complete monster.
title ran off my page, thought it said "DerrickGreenTransferring"...
this is much better.
I want you falling forward and running through that first would-be tackler.
all weight change is good / s / s
the next level.
OMG SHIRTLESS PRISON ABZ
or they may just get mowed over from behind. He's definitely going to hit the hole faster. Let's just hope one exists this year. Could be big year for this young man. Looking at that photo I can't help bus ask myself, Just who in the hell has guided Peppers through his weight training. Incoming players don't normally look like that until they've been in the program a couple of years. Good job DG!!!!
Just gonna throw a FROSH in the mix while we're at it...
Holy crap. He's going to light fools up when he hits them.
Good god. Peppers is all that is man.
Looking forward to seeing him throw opposing receivers to the turf like rag dolls.
His pecs look like they were made in a factory and glued on.
Looks like a drawing by an artist. His muscles have muscles. That physique and definition for his age is insane.
It's Ravishing Rick Rude!
What does a S&C coach do with that?
Why do they always flex in the after pics and not the before ones. Not doubting these guys have made gains, but kind of makes the pictures pretty useless for comparison's sake.
I've seen a few Photoshops in my day, and.....
These are reminiscent of Frank Clark's pics. Awesome.
Almost 250 with 27 percent body fat is...not ideal for a big time RB. Hope his hard work pays off in the fall.
Isn't that like the standard for Wisconsin tailbacks? /s
Not of recent/modern vintage
I'll always see Wisconsin as Ron Dayne and PJ Hill ... despite Ball's success.
Well PJ hill was 5'10" and about 220, so he wasn't exactly a fatty magoo. Of course we was about 240-250 his first year, and slimmed down to be a better RB.
I couldn't believe he was the same guy. DIdn't really give his career much of a boost though.
Picture on the left: genetics. Picture on the right: genetics + hard work.
genetics + pizza, pop, potato chips, and ice cream.
I'm impressed... Holy shit he's ripped!
He's done an amazing job, but I gotta say, that looks a little higher than 9%.
He's just got those pro-wrestler abs. Inhale and it looks like a big barrel, then exhale and it looks like a gigantic six pack.
Seems a little generous to me too. To put this in perspective, if the numbers he's giving are correct, that means in one year he would have gained 20 lbs of lean muscle mass and lost 47 lbs of fat. Seems crazy to me, but he's obviously in better shape than he was.
