High Performance Produces Results

high performance


There’s been a lot of chatter about the off-season progress of the players after undergoing their first season on Coach Erik Korem’s High Performance regimen. As you can see above, in just a few short months the Cats have become much more fit. On average they’ve lost 4.75 pounds of fat while gaining 2.5 pounds of muscle, a pretty extraordinary feat considering the short amount of time. The lack of depth problem can be mitigated through their emphasis on increasing stamina through plenty of rest and re-hydration.


Is anyone else fascinated by how small that orange looks in Za’Darius’ hand?

    2. Insert Aziz’s joke about 50 cent learning what a grapefruit was for the first time. “Why isn’t this purple?”

    Nutritional education: Something most Kentuckians know very little about.

    Some of us know it not necessary to capitalize the first word after a colon.

    Met Za’Darius back in February and when I shook his hand, I was astounded. Dude has the biggest hands I’ve ever seen.

    Does anyone else think that saying players are gaining 2.5 lbs is really not that much to brag about? Every program has guys gain weight, and 2.5 lbs is almost nothing.
    Oh and since I’m posting something negative on here you’ll probably think I’m a card fan, im not. I’m actually just a UK fan who thinks that’s nothing special

    @10, it’s actually an average of 7.25 pounds of good weight per player when you average in fat loss and muscle gain. That’s very impressive, IMO.

    I should add that while it doesn’t seem like a lot, the players maintained any muscle they had while gaining new mass and losing the fat. The players improved their body composition and it will pay dividends in the fourth quarter.

    This is cool and all, but what is it with football people and capitalizing the first letter in every word?

    13 – All the letters are capitalized. The first letter is just in a larger point size. This has nothing to do with “football” people and everything to do with graphic designers.

    Lol, dude on the far right skewed those weight loss/muscle gain averages for sure! Think that’s 4 jelly donuts in his hand.
