    Shigeru “Sonny” Sano


    has directed
    Ohio University’s strength and
    conditioning program since April
    2001, following five successful years
    at Virginia Tech.

    Under Sano’s supervision, Ohio players set 18 new position records and
    had a school-record 39 players earn individual lifting awards during 2006
    winter workouts, including two that earned Super Iron Bobcat status, the
    highest weight training honor for an Ohio football student-athlete.

    Sano began his career with a short stint at Pittsburgh before working as
    a graduate assistant coach at East Carolina from 1995-96. He subsequently
    became Virginia Tech’s strength and conditioning coordinator for men’s
    Olympic sports, working closely with male student-athletes and female
    swimmers and throwers. In August of 1999, Sano was elevated to
    assistant director for the Hokies, coordinating all activities of the men’s
    basketball and volleyball teams. For all five years at Virginia Tech, he
    assisted in all facets of strength and conditioning for the football team.
    In his final two years there, Sano also was in charge of developing speed
    and agility for the Hokies’ football program, which played in the Sugar
    Bowl for the 1999 national championship.

    A 1989 graduate of Rikkyo University in Tokyo, Japan, Sano earned a
    bachelor’s degree in psychology while playing for the school’s varsity
    ice hockey team. He came to the United States after graduation and
    earned an additional degree in physical education from Eastern Michigan
    University in 1991. Sano also completed a master’s degree in sports
    administration from Wayne State University in 1993.

    Sano is a member of the National Strength and Conditioning
    Association and holds certification as a strength and conditioning
    specialist and as a USA Weightlifting club coach.

    I witnessed it first hand during my tenure playing ball up here. The inflation is out of control and the team has the worst routine ever.

    In highschool our coach had us doing this thing called the "Papa Whale's benchpress routine". Basically we benched 4-5 times a week. I saw next to no progress on my bench. It could have been from my shit diet back then, but I have little faith in people who don't practice what they preach. There's a reason a lot of the guys in this forum listen to Pur, Timer, Chris, Googz, maine, cavey and fatdude.

    That'd be embarassing to have your numbers inflated then have someone else called you on it :noes:
