8 Mile

As I worked with A-Rabbit every morning at 6 AM the goal was always the same. Prepare yourself so that when the situation arises you can throw the right pitch or throw a strike for the save. Even if that day never comes, at least you can look back and realize you did everything could to be ready when greatness came knocking...

CrossFit Football Feedback

I have always been on the heavy side. I was always okay with it since I played offensive line from seven years old all the way up till my Sophomore year of college. That year my life took an interesting turn, as most of my friends started doing drugs and partying all the time.

Prior to the seminar, I was training for the games, which is evaluating fitness one AMRAP workout at a time. I was wondering if you plan on holding another combine. I know this year's combine was cancelled due to scheduling issues. I can't tell you how psyched up I am for this event...

Iowa Football & Rhabdo

Hey John, Did you hear about the recent case of rhabdomyolysis at the University of Iowa? I was curious as one of the players said he had to "squat 240lbs for 100 reps and it was timed." 13 players were affected and I was just hoping that with your experience you might be able to shed some light on why this type of training is beneficial for D1 football players at this point in the off-season...
