Scott Cochran this off season. Man he has put on some serious muscle.

Yeah I could hardly believe that was him. Dude is jacked now
Right around 210 now. Benching 400 lbs. Amazing what an offseason of being relatively healthy (for him at least) can do. Kevin's going to have a big year.
Pics or GTFO?
If Norwood is benching 400lbs, I wanna know what Julio was benching lol
He's not benching 400, (not when anyone's looking . . . ) but he did put on some lean muscle over the off season and gained some healthy LB's. They really limit WR's in bench press and rarely allow them to max out. It's not just about building muscle. It's about building the right muscles to perform your position. WR's are lean and mean. DL need leg and upper body strength. Which is why you see JW benching 600 (which isn't his max). Specific weight programs by position. It's down to a science and Scott is a genius.
It's one of the main questions HS coaches have when they visit Bama at camps during the summer. They only get half the story. Ha.
Sorry, no flame, but if MH says Norwood is benching 400 I believe it. Him being healthy will make a huge difference. He'll be a completely different player this year IMO
Yeah someone with the ability and time give us a before and after pic in this thread. I need a comparison.
It is amazing to see kids coming into our program and how they develop both on the field and their bodies in such a short time. No doubt we have one of the best strength and conditioning programs in the country. And it only helps with how well high school kids now understand working out in the weight room is just as important to excelling at the next level as working on the field. They come to College so much more physical than any time in the past. LOL, I look back on occasion to my high school annuals - 90 time period - and its hilarious. The size, strength, speed today blows away what was then. And its not like the school was small - a decent size 5A which then was the highest level in Alabama. There is just no comparison how high school programs prepare kids today vs years past. And yet, they blow up when they reach top level programs like Alabama's strength programs even more - especially as kids grow into their bodies.
Oh, I'm not challenging MH. Great poster. I just am fortunate enough to know in this particular situation. No offense to MH.
:thumbsup: I know. I didn't mean to sound like you were, if I came off that way. Appreciate your posts! It's awesome to see that our program has the physical aspect of the players down to such a science.
Bump for before and after pic
I can second that Norwood is benching 400, he is a beast.
No offense to you either, but this is not speculation.
Well as accurate as one man can be lol
