September Mailbag

It’s time for the September mailbag!

This is a a long enough article as it is, so let’s get right to it:

Question for you. If I read correctly you don’t think Reggie Bush should give up the Heisman Trophy. I agree. I think O.J. should. Your thoughts? — @Lisainthehouse (Lisa)

We are looking at apples and oranges here. What Reggie Bush did (receiving improper benefits) and what O.J. Simpson did (or didn’t do) are completely different, but both guys should keep the Heisman Trophy.

I’ve backed Bush ever since reports surfaced that they were going to strip the honor from him (check out my video blog about the situation). Bush wasn’t ruled ineligible until years after he took home college football’s most prestigious honor. He played every game that season just like everyone else (completely eligible at the time), and he was easily the most dominant player in the game.

I’m guessing Bush found out Heisman Trophy Trust was going to officially take the trophy away from him, so he just decided to turn it over instead. I feel like it was a “give it back or we’ll take it away” situation. I think he should have let them take it, so they would have looked like the bad guys. I know he did the wrong thing back then (he was kid), but now I think he looks even worse by turning over the trophy (he’s screaming “I BROKE THE RULES!”).

O.J. Simpson’s issues happened year’s after he played as well, but on a much different level. His situation happened off the field, and the most important part (whether you agree or not), is that Simpson was never found guilty of murder. There’s no reason for him to lose his Heisman Trophy (even though he had to sell it in the end anyway).

Once you’re a Heisman Trophy winner, you’re always a Heisman Trophy winner. That’s the way I see it. You can’t erase history by taking back the award. Like it or not, everyone will always remember that Bush won the honor in 2005 and Simpson won in 1968 (even though his award isn’t really in jeopardy). The funny thing is…both went to USC. Coincidence???

I have a couple of questions for you. How tall are you? You look somewhat tall on television. Do you workout with weights? How much do you bench press? — @Radar74 (Al Brown)

I actually received more personal questions than sports related questions for the September mailbag. I’m totally cool with that! Like I’ve said before, I’ll answer anything you throw at me.

To answer the first question…I’m 5’11″. In other words, I’m not Gheorghe Muresan, but I’m not Eddie Gaedel either.

To answer your second question…I do workout with weights. I’ve always enjoyed lifting and I probably will for the rest of my life (or as long as my body can take it). I don’t do much heavy lifting anymore. I usually use lighter weight and do more sets/reps. That way I keep my heart rate up and I also get the benefit of resistance training (one of the reasons I’ve lost so much weight over the last four and a half months). 

I used to take weightlifting very seriously (I had a workout journal and everything), but not anymore. I don’t even know how much I bench press. I haven’t tried to max out in years (probably since college). I could do 315 pounds pretty easily back then.  I’ll give it a shot one of these days and report back. NOTE: It won’t be anywhere near 315 pounds anymore. 

A lot has changed since I was really into weightlifting. I’m a meat and potatoes kind of guy when it comes to working out. I know a lot of basic push and pull exercises (bench, squats, curls, etc.), but now I see a lot of people doing those workouts while balancing on a ball. I don’t know anything about that (except it’s supposed to make more muscles work while you balance/stabilize yourself) and I don’t think I care to learn.

My friend Joe Bauer (you can learn more about him at http://fitnessnewsnow.com) has turned me on to CrossFit. I’ve only done one “Workout of the Day” (they post it online everyday), but it was an ass kicker. It was a circuit of running 400 meters and then doing 25 burpees . You do that six times as fast as you can (it took me a little more than a half hour). It doesn’t sound like much, but my body felt like it was going to explode the next day. A good friend of mine actually just sent me an email saying that he’s lost 20 pounds in less than two months by eating right and using CrossFit workouts. You should definitely check it out. 

How goes the cooking? — @AgateShadow (Susie Bush)

This is obviously a follow up to my I’m Not A Cook article from May.

I’m honestly still not much of a cook, but I’ve had more success than failure since May. The reason being, I don’t stray away from the same meals every week. I usually stick with chicken, salmon, and ground turkey. It’s getting pretty boring, but I’m very limited on my cooking ability (even after experimenting for months).

That’s my biggest problem with dieting. I know a group of foods that are good for me (fruits, vegetables, nuts, chicken, etc.) and I go with those (I literally buy the same thing every time I’m at the grocery store). I don’t have much variety, so it gets pretty dull.

My mom is trying to lose weight, so she’s started asking me questions. Many of them revolve around workouts, but she also asks me about foods she should eat and others she should stay away from. I’ll be honest. I’m not the best person to ask. Again, I live by a very basic diet, sticking to the foods I know belong in my body.

Don’t get me wrong. I like what I eat (especially when I see the results that I have). I’d take a baked chicken breast with raw vegetables and cottage cheese over a Big Mac, fries, and a Pepsi any day. At the same time, I’m open to new ways of jazzing up my meals. I would love any healthy recipes or cooking tips that you have for me.  Eating will be a lot more fun if I can mix it up a little.

You can easily leave a comment below, get in touch with me on Twitter @lewissports, connect with me on Facebook, or email me at tim@timlewissports.com. I’m open to all of your questions as well. If I don’t have an answer (especially when it comes to fitness/diet)…I can find one for you.

The mailbox for October is officially open!
