Each February, hundreds of the very best college football players are invited to the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Ind., where executives, coaches, scouts and doctors from all 32 NFL teams conduct an intense, four-day job interview in advance of the NFL Draft. Here is a brief breakdown of the measurable drills:
The 40-yard dash is the marquee event at the combine. It's kind of like the 100-meters at the Olympics: It's all about speed,…

In a recent study released today, 1 in 6 children are considered "obese". This isn't a new revelation and I'd venture to say that the results of this study made few raise an eyebrow given that the sight of overweight children seems to move closer to the norm with every passing year.
I'll stop short of saying that it's become an "acceptable" norm as I'd like to continue to believe the percentage of society that doesn't believe overweight children is acceptable still…Continue

What exactly are you doing in your training?
When are you doing it?

Is it a partnership with your…Continue

Who says that training for downhill skiing always needs to be performed in snow?
The exercise in this video was considerably easier than I thought it would be, so load should be added, for example, by attaching a long band to the athlete’s waist.
Then the athlete walks backward up the hill until the band is as tight as possible. The band should allow for about 20-30 metres of jumping.
As the athlete starts jumping down the hill (s)he is being pulled by the band…

Florida State offensive coordinator / tight ends coach James Coley says the program is done releasing forty times and strength statistics.
Coley explained at a recent Seminole Club meeting, “NFL teams use any published times and number they see, and it’s not fair to the kids. A lot of the numbers aren’t accurate, as they’re taken, say at the end of a workout, when the guys are already wore down. Those numbers affect how the NFL looks at them as a prospect, so we’d rather they not get…Continue
