What Kind of Parent or Society Does This to Their Children
High school sports used to be a fun and interesting and healthy activity for high school students. The purpose was to get good exercise in a non threatening way, to find some camaraderie and to enjoy competition. No longer, sorry folks. Now
America is sacrificing its children
the altar of bigger, but not better.
How 300 pounds became high school football’s magic number
As college athletes grow in size, high school football players, particularly offensive linemen, believe that they have to pack on pounds if they want to play at the next level. Some lift weights to build muscle. Others bulk up any way they can, even if they have to eat their way to 300 pounds.
Gosh, what could be wrong with this.
Players bulk up at the risk of developing eating habits and extra weight that can cause long-term health concerns. Adding excessive weight can create lifelong problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, elevated cholesterol levels, breathing difficulties and increased susceptibility to stress fractures and muscle and joint pain.
Oh, that. Okay
