Or, rather, lifting it.
In something I meant to pass along in the earlier post, I asked Cameron Elisara yesterday about the fact that he is often talked about as one of the team's most avid weight lifters.
It's a tough question in a way because there's no way to answer it without sounding boastful, so just to make clear, he was simply trying to give me an answer when he told me, not bragging.
Anyway, Elisara said he has the best squat on the team at 605 pounds.
But he said he other players have bested him in some of the other lifts.
Specifically, he said Darrion Jones and Jordan White-Frisbee have the best bench presses on the team (though he wasn't sure of the number) and that Daniel Te'o-Nesheim has the best clean and jerk ("he took that from me,'' Elisara said.
"Everybody has gotten better,'' Elisara said, saying that of his two years here this was the best winter conditioning the team has done.
Coaches also have said that they are generally pleased with the overall condition of the team.
