My son is going into his last year of high school. He is a Linebacker on the football team. They begain practice in Febuary this year his body weight increased by 10 pounds his lifting weight had not increased by much at all compared to last year Bench went up 30 lbs squat increased by 50 lbs. The coach hand timed him in the 40 yard dash where he ran a 4.56. two tenths of a second faster than his time last year. He stopped him in front of the other players and asked him “what are you on,no one gets that much faster in a year”!
That started the entire team and parents raising hell saying he was on steriods! I took him and had him tested two days later. It came back clean for ALL drugs! the damage was done and he couldnt even play on this team because of all the crap an uneducated coach had started!
This guy hasnt a clue on strength training at all! He now has the entire team training on Peloties(not sure on spelling) system and had them stop lifting weights altogether!
I have rented an apartment across town so my son can play on another schools football team! Un-informed people need to be held acountable for making uneducated assumptions!
