Thanks for taking time to offer your advice in the forum.
I'd be interested to get your take on the following, especially as it relates to your previous quote about NFL S&C coaches being scared of injury to a player.
The Palm Beach Post reports Miami Dolphins WR David Boston's (hamstring, shin) personal trainer said Monday, May 17, that Boston would be "counterproductive" should he lose about 11 pounds, as the Dolphins have asked. Boston, who carries only 5 percent body fat, hasn't shed a pound in two months and still is around 240 pounds. "When you get below 4 percent, you start to encounter sleep disorders," Boston's trainer, Charles Poliquin said. "The problem is that if he loses weight, he will be more prone to injury and not as fast. That would be taking two cylinders out of a car. The thing about this NFL science is that it's about five or six Olympic medals behind in the times." The Dolphins believe Boston's excess weight may have contributed to lower leg bleeding that kept him out of the first three days of quarterback school.
All the best
