Go Rockville High!

This is where it all started!  Gotta watch the Friday night game of my high school alma mater!

How to Get the Most Out of Your “Two-a-Days”

As you all know, or some of you may not know, “Two-a-Day’s” or “Daily Double” workouts are truly the most demanding time you can ever put on your body.  With that being said, this is a time when you really have to be smart and have to fuel and take care of yourself better than […]

High School Football Q & A

Recently I received this comment full of questions from a young player:
“Hello Mr. Romanowski,
I was wondering if you could help me improve my workout and answer a few questions. Firstly, I try to get to the gym at least 3 times a week but was wondering if you could help me or give me some guidance. Mainly […]

Positive Drug Tests in the NFL

I am disheartened to hear a bunch of NFL guys have tested positive for water pills.  First of all, if they are taking them to lose weight, there is not a dumber way to lose weight than to drain your body of its most precious element - water.  There is nothing that will hurt athletic performance like being […]

Football and Cupcakes Don’t Mix

I recently started coaching freshman football for Piedmont High School this year.  My son is on the team and I have coached a lot of these kids in flag football for the last two years, but I didn’t really know what to expect from them now that they have full pads on. 
We started with 28 […]

Summer Training - It’s Crunch Time

It’s been a month now since we started our basic summer training for developing football players.  If you are playing ball this fall, I hope you have been following my training advice and incorporating your own workouts as well. 
We have about a month until the high school and college seasons start, which means its really […]

A Letter

The other day I was lucky enough to receive this letter in the mail:

The letter was accompanied by this game card from 1992:

With email, blogs, Facebook, and text messages, it’s personal to receive a handwritten note every once in a while.  So thank you Howie for this letter.
Also, this game card gave me a good reminder […]

The Basics of Weight Lifting

I have mentioned the importance of hard work tons of times in my book (click here for a free copy) and on this site.  And for me, I know much of my success was due to hard work in the weight room.  It’s something that I recommended in my previous post and weight training can make the […]

Summer Training

We are almost to the end of June, which means that all you high school ball players have had a month off from school to rest up and have some fun.  But with the high school season only two months away, it’s time to get to work on strength, fitness, and conditioning.  The hard work you […]

On The Air

I frequently visit radio stations to check in, talk football, and spend some time on the air.  It’s fun, there’s nothing like getting the chance to talk to and with thousands of listeners.  Yesterday I got a chance to be on the San Francisco based radio show Fernando and Greg, on Energy 92.7 FM for […]
