    The bench is not THE station they give as much weight to anymore (no pun intended!). Exlposion routines get more attention. I did not allow my son to start using agressive weight training until he was almost fifteen. I remember taking him from a max of 165 to a max of 225 on his 15th birthday! More amazing was that we did it in three weeks!!

    One of the reasons we did it that way, too, was because the high school program was not well-regulated and even counter-productive to dangerous in technique.

    In the two years since then, with HS training programs, he is only at 300 max. (Still ended up as 2nd team all-district on the state champ team here in Oklahoma.)
    With that being said... Aaron will be just fine and do well at the next level.

    Agreed. Although the bench/squat numbers are the traditional universal measures, there is a recent emphasis on Power Clean numbers...

    Exactly. I know that when my son camped at tOSU, Coach Heacock talked about leverage and quickness of feet (for example) as much or more than some strength issues. I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir on this one... part of that emphasis is because of the way the game has evolved.

    Sorry, I don't mean to change the thouht-line of the original thread. Brown would be a great addition to the Buckeye family.

    Don't worry about that...I already split it. The lifting discussion is a solid topic so it deserved its own thread.

    The Power Clean is a great example of explosion and coordination...proper technique will raise the numbers significantly. The PC is the foundation of our team workout.

    what you can bench press doesnt nessacarily match up to how strong a kid is. for example, im a wrestler and i know a few guys who are strong as half a dozen mules but dont really put up huge numbers when it comes to bench pressing.
