Question regarding power lifting and football...
« on: March 07, 2009, 08:01:52 AM »
This statement was made on the football thread by OldSchool,
"when have we ever had an outstanding track team? Track results don't mean a thing when it comes to football, neither does powerlifting"  :huh:

Isn't weight training and power lifting was a significant part of the off season program for football?

I did not want to respond to this comment because I do not have the facts but I thought some of you who follow power lifting could respond.

I know I have heard that Bill Parcels say he is a stickler for weight training because he believes it reduces injuries in players.

What are your perspectives on the subject?

Track improves speed and endurance.  Power lifting builds strength and power.  A good football player possesses speed, endurance, strength and power. 

Sounds like a good use of time.
