    Strength

    This is definitely encouraging.

    Head coach Gene Chizik
    On the off-season weight program...
    ďA year ago when I got here we had two power cleaners over 300 pounds, today we have 21. That is credited to coach Sheppard back in the weight room emphasizing explosion and power. We had one 500 pound squatter, now we have 13. We had 11 bench presses of 315 pounds or more, now we have 33. Those are the three explosion lifts that we look at and the team has made incredible jumps at that and we have to make more because we still arenít strong enough.Ē

    WOW!!! That is impressive and what a college football team should be doing. It will be great to be seeing ISU pushing around opponents in the football field as opposed to the way it has been in the past. Keep up the great work coaches.

    Re: Strength

    Why didnt the previous staff have the players life like this? When Mac took over the weight program he put in was suppose to be a huge upgrade. Did they fall behind? Did they get lazy? This will help this team in big ways.

    I don't really understand this either.....I always heard what a great job coach Getti did. Maybe this is a case of a coach finding certain positive statistics and emphasizing them.....but with Chizik I doubt it, he doesn't seem like a bs'er. Sounds like we're headed in the right direction.

    Part of the reason could have been the break down of the roster. Last spring the numbers as well as the size of the OL & DL were down. Chizik has addressed this problem with his recruiting since he took over.

    Re: Strength

    When I was at Wartburg, We had 20 or more guys that could clean 300 or more. Our strength coach told us at the time ISU had 7.
    Getty was very much a technician and I think it was almost to a fault.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Strength

    I know nothing about the previous staff's weight program and I know just a little more about weight training specific to FB.

    But what I do know is that Chizik has been the DC at two big time FB schools that had undefeated season in the past few years (Auburn and Texas). He does know what the standards of performance in this area need to be for us to have a fighting chance once we hit the field because he has been to the promised land.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    I am going to show my ignorance here but, for example, when Coach says a bench of 315 does he mean a certain number of reps at that weight or just one lift??

    Getty's program was based on what Mac wanted so don't get on Getty to much.

    Re: Strength

    Coach Sheppard has been burning the midnight oil. I see coaches' trucks lining the street by his house when I go to bed at night, and there is always a light on at his house when I get up before 6.

    I have no doubt that he works harder than he asks his players to work.
