    Cyclone Football: Winter Workout Report

    Here's the conversation that I had last week with Iowa State's director of strength and conditioning, Yancy McKnight. I think you'll enjoy this behind the scenes look at the program.

    Thanks, Chris. I would think the success last year on the field really makes the winter workouts more enjoyable (not the word I want but I can't think of how else to say it..

    Re: Cyclone Football: Winter Workout Report

    Is anyone else a little shocked that we don't have a training table? I wonder how much it would cost to provide such a thing because I'd have to think it'd make a huge impact if you could monitor and make sure guys are eating what they're supposed to, not merely suggest what to eat.

    I was surprised with this as well. I thought from my days at ISU (early 90s) that there was a training table in the old RCA.

    I am surprised as well. I hope that nutrition for some of our OL is more closely monitored.

    Re: Cyclone Football: Winter Workout Report

    I think they have a training table once the fall starts. But this about the off season and lack of a table.

    Someone feel free to correct me.

    *sigh* Everybody always picks on the fat kids...


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Cyclone Football: Winter Workout Report

    I am pretty sure that the NCAA dictates that you can only have training table while the athletes are in season for all sports and they allow football during spring ball as well. I wish athletes should be allowed access to training table year round if they train year round.

    Then, the question is:

    Am I pizza flavored ice-cream, or ice-cream flavored pizza?
