Strength Training for Athletes at The University of Texas – Iron Game History – January, 1993

Ralph Hammond worked out all summer and he worked out hard. The college football season would begin before long and he wanted to be ready, so most mornings he’d be on the running track by daybreak for a few easy miles and some speed work, maybe even some stadium stairs. But his main workout came later, in the early afternoon, when he’d begin each session with stretching exercises on a wrestling mat in a wooden annex of the main gym at the University of Texas in Austin.
