I just read a great story about Les Brown V, an accountant that was 215lbs with not much muscle, but after training for about 10 weeks, transfered into a muscular 240 lb guy, who is now being considered to play in NFL for Miami Dolphins. He did this by training hard with a trainer. Les was a basketball player in college and also played in other sports in high school, but never foothball because he was too skinny.

A trainer for BYU named Chad Ikei saw Les and thought he would be a good candidate for his training program and offered to train him for free as a trail. “He looked at me and said, ‘You’ve got the rest of your life to work. You could be a great tight end,” Brown said. “Chad was persistent, he wanted to take me on as a project.”

Brown went to NFL tryouts at BYU. Out of all people trying out, he had the best broad jump (10 feet, 3 inches),  vertical jump (39 inches), 40-yard time (4.43).

NCAA Basketball Betting Spices Up Next Season

April 15, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Even though basketball season just ended, there is no time to be wasted in preparing for next year’s season. Everyone is already familiar with the mechanics of fantasy sports, but why not try something with a little more instant gratification this season? NCAA basketball betting can be done either with friends, or online with fans from all over the internet.  You might know a lot about sports, but you may not know how to bet on sports the right way, and in a way that ensures you have a healthy balance of risk versus reward.

One trick is to always stay on top of the latest happenings or events. Web services like the 5dimes sportsbook are at your disposal for staying connected with any of the significant events that might influence the betting world. And, as you are probably familiar with, there are a number of sports commentary programs on television that will give you the rundown of highlights all throughout the athletiverse.  The more you know, the better your chances are. Of course, luck always has something to do with it, so in addition to beer, munchies, and other amenities, you might want to think about stocking up on rabbit’s feet for the next basketball season. Even if you don’t win, it is a great way to connect with likeminded individuals who are enthusiastic about the same sports you are. While you may not always make money betting online, you can at least potentially make some new friends!
