  1. Saw that on the ESPN broadcast last night. Kindof looked weird.

    It made me think though that his conditioning has been the cornerstone of his career. I think alot of pitcher and some position players make the mistake of bulking up (naturally or not), when working on conditioning may be the best for their muscles and joints.

    I heard thatLance Lynn made a point to do that last off-season and so far it seems to be paying off for him.

  2. As a competitive powerlifter, I thought this was pretty cool to see. I also thought that Bronson must simply not eat because he’s so skinny. It’s a common misnomer that lifting will automatically make someone look bulky, but I’d still expect someone who lifts to be bigger than Bronson.

  3. At 8 yrs old, the kid could squat more than most people today can in their adulthood. That dead lift looked though. Don’t try it like that at home, kids.
