|1 week 6 days ago||Any disparity in Gary's and||
Any disparity in Gary's and Hudson's arm-length (which, in any event, has substantially less effect on one's bench press than people seem to think) is mitigated by the disparity in their respective chest/back mass; Gary's barpath probably isn't much longer than Hudson's.
That is absurdly strong for a ~210lb non-strength athlete.
Since 2006, only 10 defensive backs/safeties have exceeded 25 reps at the NFL Combine. Most were significantly heavier than Hudson, and all presumably trained the bench press-- specifically, the 225 rep test--extensively in preparation for the Combine.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||As with all things||
As with all things fitness-related, the appropriateness of a program depends on your goals. I imagine that, in light of your particularly lean physique, you'd like to put on some muscle mass. If so, HIIT sessions--which are primarily valued for their tendency to promote fat-loss and muscle-retention--would be a perfectly fine ancillary component of your training (e.g., for heart health and general physical preparedness), but they should not be the centerpiece; your foundation should be heavy compound lifts (e.g., squat, bench, deadlift, overhead press) fueled by a significant caloric surplus from relatively clean food sources.

We talk about "outgrowing the position" a lot, and I don't think it's a concern grounded in fact. A player may continue to grow taller in his college years, but if a player is "accidentally" gaining weight without increasing in height -- regardless of the weight's composition in fat and muscle -- that would be an incredible indictment on the training staff.

I didn't really grill him since the guys sitting on his other side kept jawing about how Darius is an idiot for leaving and other dumb stuff like that. I told Novak they need to take him to go see some good-looking girls instead of these fanboys; he laughed and replied that'd happen later.
I asked him about his official visits; he told me he is allowed to take 10 (instead of the usual 5) since he took a year off after high school. "You're gonna hate me for this, but I'm going to Duke next weekend." I asked, "Are you visiting anywhere more than once?" He replied, "No, but I'll be back at Michigan for camp in [whatever month it was]."
He was going batshit crazy on all the big Michigan plays, waiving his towel and giving out high-fives. He, like the rest of the student section, clealy enjoyed the rain, too. He sang and fist-pumped along with The Victors. He even tried to start a cheer, but his "LET'S GO BLU-UE" wasn't very catchy.
Finally, right before he and the others left, I asked him to take a picture with me. He seemed really excited, throwing his arm around me and joking around. I got a little too excited and started slapping him on the shoulder. He cringed a little, and I remembered that his shoulder had gotten cut up pretty badly when he broke that backboard. I apologized, but he just thought it was funny. After the picture, we all started jumping around a little bit, yelling "Go Blue!" and whatever else. He said several things to the effect of "I'll see you guys next year!" and then left.
We spotted him walking across the field several minutes later during the second rain delay, and I shouted out to him. He turned around, shouted something back and waived.
I think we'll see him in maize and blue.
|4 years 46 weeks ago||Hey, that's my||
Hey, that's my tweet!
Obviously, I don't know what he does and says on his visits elsewhere. But I sat and chatted with him, Novak, and Hardaway from the first rain delay forward and I'd be shocked if he didn't end up at Michigan.
Real nice, funny kid.
Seemed more excited than I was when I asked him to take a picture:

Nice piece. There ought to be a policy whereby a fraternity's membership loses its ticket-buying privilege if less than half of its ticket-holding members make it to the stadium by the national anthem (in favor of playing Edward 40 Hands and passing out).

|8 years 3 weeks ago||LOL||You guys all look so dumb now. You see, all my posts have actually been ironic and sarcastic, and thus witty and funny. Anybody who didn't get that is a square.|

Therefore, saying something like "Anybody who falls for a BHGP post is dumb," is indeed an indictment on Brian. Fight On!|

Yes, as one of very few schools that rivals Michigan in both athletics and academics, the University of Southern California is certainly worthy of reverence. As far as the second part of your comment, that's a pretty big indictment on Brian, my friend: http://mgoblog.com/content/youll-see-what-you-want

Much truth is said in jest.
Of course I know that the majority of what he's saying is satirical (scheduling, NBA comments, et cetera) - how could someone possibly enjoy Iowa football without a good sense of humor?
That said, I have little patience for anyone with such disrespect for Michigan football, regardless of the tone.

If on-field performance is a bad argument exhibit, I don't want to exercise a good one. Even at my ass' expense. No homo.
|8 years 3 weeks ago||Eh||The "plagiarism" comment was bordering on witty (if not relevant). This one's a head-scratcher. Work on it.|

That would be quite the game if so.
3-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust aficionados need not apply.

The more the merrier; it speaks volumes about the allure of Michigan's storied athletic history. Any non-grad Northwestern fans out there?
Plus, I've found that (at least among the ranks of M fans my age (M sophomore)) those who do not attend U-M are the most rabid fans - following recruiting closely and having a grasp on the Michigan football tradition.
|8 years 3 weeks ago||Uh||Line breaks automatic, eh?|
