But systematic, organized weight-lifting on the high school level is relatively new arid that's why Garrigan football coach Beanie Cooper's program has been gaining so much attention from high schools in this area. Cooper began working with 15 boys in February — three time* each week. Now his program has doubled and coach and boys alike are enthusiastic. He has had only two "drop-outs" and both were not ; really drop-puts since they quit only because baseball sea son started. They'll be back with the weights this summer for sure. COOPER concentrates on juniors and sophomores and 28 of his current class are from these two classes. The boys meet each morning at 7:15 a.m., three times a week. Fifteen of his boys are on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday schedule while the other 15 meet on Tuesdays, Thursday and Saturdays. "The kids started out by taking over an old storage room, fixing it up and even painting it", Cooper explains. Here are some of the amazing results at the end of the first six weeks of the program in late March: One young man put on two inches around his biceps. Another went from a 14Va to 16Va neck. One boy could press (lift) 280 pounds five times with his legs when he started the program. After six weeks, tho same boy pres- ,,sed or lifted 600. pounds ,— ''22 times! ''." ' ' '"' '' ' '•"*'.'•"" The boys have gained an aver age of 8.8 pounds with no change in waist size. All have felt better and looked better physically. WHEN THE BOYS first started working out, they did their exercises after school. But they preferred the "Early Bird" workout and thus started coming at 7:15 a.m. Wouldn't the results be even more amazing if the boys worked out six days a week instead of three? "The answer is an emphat- THE LAD'stretched out on his back, lifting weights" is Dick Mueller while left to right brother Jack, Coach Beanie Cooper and Harlari Brown look on. . BILL MILDER, senior, checks Larry Nauholtz's record lifting weights during one of three weekly drills the young hi^n from Garrigan have been volunteering for each morning. :; ic "No", Cooper discloses, "Working out daily with weights is worse -than never working out at all." He explains that the every-other- day routine allows the body to rid itself of wastes and to recuperate for the next exercise period. And dont think that every boy is a strapping 215-pound tackle either. The boys range in size from 125 pounds to 235 pounds. They come from all sports — not just football which Cooper coaches, ' "The exercises we do are designed and approved by all sports — basketball, football and baseball," he tells me.

'There are some programs .that it into the various individual ports but we do not have any >f these in our workouts. We prefer to help out all phases of athletics if possible." THE SECRET to regular workouts is that each exercise is done properly, for the correct amount of time, without injury :o the boy. "The boys have sacrificed a lot but the results are more than gratifying to them.' The program is on a voluntary basis and that's the way Cooper wants it. "We wouldn'1 want the boy there unless he wanted to be there," he says After the workout and a shower the fellows sit around and as Beanie puts it, "polish off two or three dozen rolls". They then begin their classroom activity, "alert and sharp". The boys are measured, weighed and tested for strength and detailed records are kept to measure their progress during each six-week period. An unbeaten football season next fall for the Bears Cooper is asked? "Yea, there'll be some unbeaten teams around. We just on't know where they'll be." INCIDENTALLY, Algona high chool coach Jim Hershberger as taken a page from Cooper's book. Actually, "Hersh" has had lis boys working with weights or a long time but after seeing he results Cooper has had, he's putting them into a regular, upervised program too this ummer.
