I don't recognize a bunch of those guys. Who is that in #13 and 14?
Li'l Billy is a powerfully built guy.
Chiozza looks a lot stronger than I expected.
Chris Walker is bulking up.
I thought Jacob Kurtz was transferring.
The staff might want to consult with a real doctor (not a strength coach) about that lifting the tractor tire exercise. I know it looks cool, but they're all lifting with the lower back. Just the thing to cause back problems.
I guess you are speaking of pic 47 Planet - that does look like a very bad posture for lifting upward, which is something that you absolutely ALWAYS want to do with your legs and not your back, particularly your lower back (speaking as a person who almost always lifted correctly, yet still develop lower back problems due to one angry lifting stupidity in my early 30s).
Now the ones with the rope pulling on the tire, although they look bad from this perspective, are actually putting pressure pretty evenly across the legs and the back. That is a very interesting exercise.
But yes, from Pic 47, I agree, they should speak to someone who is an expert on backs rather than merely some strength coach (who frequently, like all specialists today, have knowledge that is directed rather than being comprehensive ).
Of course, you can injure yourself any time you are testing the limits of your strength, which is why I generally oppose power lifting. I guess it makes a certain amount of sense when you are a competitive athlete, but otherwise, it is not generally a very good approach to staying in shape.
CW squatting an empty bar w/ chains?
I like the farmer walk. Hopefully there's more squatting, deadlifting, cleaning going on than is pictured here.
Look at Robinson smiling, haha. Poor guy, that tire must have broken him in half.
I see 'determined' written all over Chris Walker.
Who's the big guy in frame 47, 48 & 49?
Looks like john egbunu the USF transfer.
If he ever forgets to play determined...shame on him, it's written right there on his body!
Can't wait for that monster to lace it up for the O&B.
Now, could he just reel in some fellow Nigerians for us?
Aside from Patric Young, I think Egbunu is my favorite center prospect we've had since the championship years. I think he has that "it" factor and is going to be a star for the Gators. Tremendous upside.
Egbunu has a pretty muscular frame already. He should be pretty monstrous with another year of lifting weights.
We will not bulk Egbunu up anymore...already 6'10 and 250...if anything we will make him stronger while getting him more cut, so he can be even more explosive of an ATH
Wish Egbunu could suit up this year!
Doesn't he have a whole year to eat his azz off...ala Rick Majerus?
Everyone oohs and aahhhs over this power-man nonsense, hefting giant tires, doing all the lifting with your lower back. No one seems to notice or connect the dots when our guys are suffering back spasms later in the season.
The chains cause the resistance to constantly change throughout the repetition. The lower he goes, the less chain is hanging, hence, less weight. As you move up, more chain comes with it, making the bar heavier and heavier as you move. Chain squats are definitely a different feeling compared to fixed weight barbell sets. It is designed to make the eccentric movement increasingly easier, and the concentric movement increasingly more difficult.
You would have thought it was pretty obvious...
"Concentric Movement" is the name of my indie rock band. We're opening for Vampire Weekend in Denver next month.
