    I know Savage’s program is a masterpiece geared for football but IMO, the reason it has transformed UF’s athletes so quickly is tied to Savage’s never quit personality and CDM’s 100% support of the off-season work. The strength and conditioning staff seems to have the team all-in and appreciating the positive results. Love the results in our comebacks vs. Vandy and USCe and out playing LSU in the 4th quarter. None of those wins would have happened in ‘17.

    Agree 100% w/ DBCooper.
    On the other hand, a regular person, who is not training for D1 sports can do exceptionally well just by following well-known strategies of strength, cardio, flexibility, rest and diet.

    I am 67 and today, just finished my 5K with 10 degree grades at altitude after 2.2 hours in the gym yesterday. My body fat is at about 6% with a chest of 42 and waist of 31. Tomorrow I go distance and then rest.

    If I can do that at my age anyone can.

    It's not the workout. It's the work that goes into it.

    It's not accountability either. Players will show p and do what the have to do to check the block.

    What this amounts to a crazy jacked up guy with an infectious attitude and a positive leadership style that makes these players want to show up and kick these workouts dead in the ass. And that my friends will translate to practice as well.

    Will be interesting to see how these players look after 3 and 4 years with Coach Savage. Steele could not wait to get away from Savage, as did not have the work ethic “off the field” to survive the Savage S&C program and did not like being pushed beyond his own pre-conceived mental limits of what was possible.

    ...sure did appear this guys program has changed a lot around here. Just that alone from last year to year two should make a huge difference. We will be strong, focused, energized and better-ready to win!:eek:;)

    Go Gators:D

    Dang. I'm a physician and I can confidently say you are in the 1% of 1% with those metrics. And even though I'm sure you work out hard,most likely you also inherited great genes.

    Thanks!
    I have had to fight a lot; especially statins for 12 years! I had the Widow Maker heart attack at 55 and only survived because I had developed ancillary capillaries through a lifetime of sports, workouts and triathalons. I can keep off a lot of meds because my BP is still around 110/75 with a resting heart rate in the 40's.

    I am a retired neuropsychologist who worked inpatient and outpatient TBI and Stroke Rehabilitation so I had lots of PT assistance through the years! They made a lot of difference in my routines for sure, but I have worked my tail off.

    His biggest problem from the beginning was consistently catching the football. If he has mastered that and route running, he should see more time.
