Great article in Wednesday’s USA Today on University of Texas basketball player Dexter Pittman and Strength and Conditioning Coach Todd Wright. It talks about how Dexter has dropped 93 lbs and transformed his body to help him be the player he is today. It also mentions how he now mentors young overweight people who are inspired by him. Its great to see athletes be positive role models, especially in regards to fitness and health. He probably couldn’t have done it without the help of Todd, who has been there for Dexter every step of the way. Todd, who is an outstanding strength and conditioning coach, has influenced several players who have gone to succeed in life and the NBA. I really like his vertical core ideas which he frequently gives presentations on at seminars. He is always learning and doing whatever he can to help his guys.
