ASAP will provide more information regarding this move....and other changes in the Kentucky strength training program. Follow us on Twitter for more updates!
ASAP Program Director Ted Lambrinides and Performance Video guy, Ed Cicale spent some quality time in Pasadena, California while attending this year's Rose Bowl contest. Oregon and Ohio State played a very entertaining game. A huge crowd of over 93,000 were on hand....including a couple of Wisconsin Football guys who probably have their sites set on getting out their in 2011. Former Head Coach Barry Alvarez shared his thoughts. He coached three Rose Bowl wins out there. And present coach Bret Bielema was still quite excited about his squad's 20-14 win over the Miami Hurricanes in the Champs Sports Bowl game in Florida. He's extremely psyched about the upcoming off season and his team's progress. The Badgers will be a force in the Big Ten race next season.
Here's a past podcast with Troy Evans... yet another ASAP trainee who will be playing in a Super Bowl! ASAP~Athletic Strength And Power caught up with Troy
Evans, who's spent many a training session with Ted Lambrinides over at The

Bearcats and the Houston Texans NFL and he's playing his ninth season in
the National Football League. He also played for an undefeated* West Chester (Ohio) Lakota High School. Troy joins ASAP Podcaster Ed Cicale for his second

Today's a great day to stop and reflect on the great job that's done everyday by the our men and women in our armed forces. They're also huge on physical training in the military. So, an extra salute from ASAP! Thanks for all you do!! Our video today is from the 2010 Rose Bowl. A quick edition of our National Anthem, performed by the University of Oregon Marching Band and flag ceremony by a U.S. Military Color Guard. A spectacular fireworks show and a Navy flyover by the VFA 22 Fighting Redcocks got the crowd of over 90,000 revved up for the exciting game. We also catch a glimpse of Head Coach Jim Tressel leading his Ohio State Buckeyes out of the tunnel! Click on the photo for a close-up look at an intense coach
The video is recorded with HD technology and audio is recorded using a Sennheiser ME66 high powered shotgun microphone...you'll hear the fireworks!!! Especially if you're setup with a subwoofer.
Athletic Strength And Power video guy, Ed Cicale, caught up with the 1997 Rose Bowl MVP, Joe Germaine during the pre-game of this year's game for an interview. Actually, the Buckeyes, due to BCS obligations, haven't been back to the Rose Bowl since that game where Germaine led the Buckeyes in the closing minutes and halted Arizona State's National Championship aspirations.
ASAP~Athletic Strength And Power Program Director, Ted Lambrinides (photo left) and ASAP Performance Video Producer Ed Cicale caught up with a former football Buckeye, a two time All-American and 1st Round NFL (N.Y Jets) draft pick Chris Ward (photo right).... one of the greats from Ohio State's past. Here's a video interview we did at halftime..find out what Chris is up to!!! He's working hard helping inner city youth....giving back to the community of Inglewood, California....or as his former coach would say, he's 'paying forward'. If you're interested in helping out Chris Ward's cause...please click on the photo above.
During the Rose Bowl Pre-Game festivities, a flyover was performed by pilots of the Fighting Redcocks of Striker Fighter Squadron 22 (VFA-22) from the Naval Air Station at Lemoore, California. The pilots thrilled the crowd...then got back to their base, where they were quickly escorted back to the stadium so that they could watch the game! ASAP got a photo of them with Chris Ward.
