    Training tables

    Does the ISU team have a training table for nutrition? I was reading of another team that hasn't in the past but the AD is thinking of setting one up as, he said, he'd tracked the players and they lost an average 13-18 pounds per player over the course of the season. How does it work? Do they force-feed the players? Do they have guys standing around recording carbs, protein, etc.?

    Re: Training tables

    They do at ISU. Only full scholarship sports can use them (football, basketball, womens soccer an volleyball). Alot of people didn't go, at least when I was in school and it was alot of the same food. I know some schools have alot better options. At Nebraska they even have people that will go to the grocery store with you to make the right choices on food.

    Re: Training tables

    I know they keep track close track on weight. During two a days they record weight before and after every practice and if they lose a certain amount of weight or aren't maintaining their weight they are "red flaged" and have to talk to the training staff. As far as nutrition, I don't think they stand around counting carbs, protein, etc, but they do eat well.

    Theres a youtube video of the University of Oregon's sport medicine facility and they have a "nutrition bar" in their facility.
