Interesting Commentary About HIT

Every day on “NFL Live” on ESPN they are featuring a different collefe football star who’s getting ready for the NFL Combine at Athelete’s Performance in Tempe, AZ. Today they featured Paul Posluzny, the star Penn State LB. Anyhow, Penn State runs a pathetic HIT program (former player Bauer who played there and posts here can enlighten us more on that). They showed one of the trainers there who made the comment “Paul comes from Penn State where they use a High Intensiy Training (HIT) program where there isn’t a real emphasis on lower body strength and Paul has made great strides in lower body strength and subsequent speed improvement in just a few weeks.”

HIT is really a joke when it comes to athletic performance.
