I keep reading how the guys are pushing harder than ever in the weight room, but Barwis pushed them pretty hard as well and had them post some pretty impressive gains. I wonder what that ceiling is on how much better shape our guys can actually get into? At some point we can't actually be getting much stronger simply due to physical limitations pertaining to body structure, tendons, etc.
One thing that would be interesting to see is difference in the bench or other upper body pressing since Barwis was more of an Olympic, explosive lift guy. I know it was something that Wellman called out shortly after he started how weak we were in this area. I know Georgia replaced their S&C coach with a new hire that would put less emphasis on the Olympic lifts since their defensive and offensive linemen lacked "punch" so they are going to emphasize more traditional lifts.
No sure if anyone has any insights regarding our new approach.
