    My back hurts after watching that. Scary form.

    Can't complain about their results though so more power to them. Metcalf is a beast.
     
  6. Jesus Christ that video was painful to watch. I love the super curls, they really worked well. Is that guy supposed to be a professional S&C coach or something?

    I have never heard of him. I imagine he is a post grad coach judging from his ears.

    Never said the form was good guys. Just found it interesting.

    I like the running of the stairs
     
  10. I'm just in shock a major program like that has a schmuck like that teaching them how to lift. They could have the entire team come on S&P and be better coaches than that guy.

    Multiple curl variations and lots of machine work. Solid program.

    WTF was with those hang cleans btw

    I imagine that it would be quite a hassle training 20 kids/college students in any case. At least if all the retarded "600lbs. squat college record" football vids on youtube are anything to go by.

    Ya but see, here is the problem with it. I live in a state where wrestling is somewhat big. MOST top level wrestlers have never been exposed to proper lifting. They just haven't. However being brought up in a resistance enviroment "wrestling" its not hard to teach them properly. Not making excuses. Just saying most top athletes are clueless when it comes to proper weights etc. Most don't get into it until midway through their careers or at the end of it, wanting to make the career last longer. make sense?
     
  14. They weren't pushing the bar up vertically, they were pushing it at a 45 degree angle.

    Those jerks/presses were awful, the bar was going in front of them rather than above their head. Ive never seen anything like it.

    ive always wanted to see a wrestling program with a good lifting routine. i never had one except what we did on our own time. you'd think the hardest sport would get a little love

    but they're probably strong as bulls anyways

    Bad form or not, the program they are following is still better than most.

    Any of you guys actually watch the video? They are doing bad form on purpose to simulate being in a wrestling environment. picking up huge amounts of weight as explosive as possible while off balance and at bad angles.

    Just thinking about running those stairs made my stomach turn.

    The only thing you can say about Iowa's training philosophy is that it works for them.
