Vic Viloria, The Man Behind FSU Strength and Conditioning

3
"Having a receiver squat 5,000 times at 5,000 pounds over and over probably wasn't the best thing for him. But we did it anyway because 'that was football,'" Viloria said somewhat sarcastically. "But the research has been done, the data is there. Coach Fisher has allowed us to use the information and allowed us to do more research in training our players." Viloria is very quick to credit Fisher with creating the kind of environment that has allowed him and his staff more flexibility in training players. It all starts with getting away from some of the more conventional ideas associated with weightlifting. "The big infatuation with the number on the bar, on the weights," said Violoria. "That has lead to a lot injuries in high school and college and the NFL, because our athletes today want to bench press 500 pounds, want to squat 500 pounds, or they want to clean a ton amount of weight."
