Thirty-four Ravens players began the 16-week off-season training program yesterday, and new strength coach Jeff Friday expects a solid core of 40 to 45 to get involved soon, but veteran safety and Pro Bowl special teams player Bennie Thompson was irritated by the low number of high-salaried players who are participating.Thompson, 36, a nine-year veteran, would not single out individuals, but players such as middle linebacker Ray Lewis, offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden, defensive tackle Tony Siragusa and cornerback Rod Woodson have made only token appearances at the conditioning sessions in the past.

Gwen Patillo started lifting weights eight years ago as a way to reshape her body, something to just "move some things around a little."At the time a 52-year-old grandmother, Patillo had never of heard of a "dead lift" or a "clean and jerk," and the idea of lifting just a barbell was somewhat intimidating.Today, she's 60 years old, her grandchildren have children and her body is totally reshaped. Now she's nearly obsessed with getting stronger for her latest vocation: powerlifting."That's my goal these days and I think I've accomplished that in a lot of ways.

COLLEGE PARK -- At the start of a crucial year in his basketball development, Maryland's accidental center faced some weighty issues.When Lonny Baxter showed up at Hargrave Military Academy in a remote part of southwestern Virginia in the summer of 1997, he packed a variety of post-up moves and 276 pounds. He carried too much for his 6-foot-8 frame, and not enough in the weight room."Lonny wanted to get up and down the court, but he was carrying an extra 30-40 pounds," Hargrave coach Scott Shepherd said.

Theories abound as to why Rogers Barnes is a late bloomer - not making a name for himself in either football or basketball until this, his senior year. But there is no doubt that Barnes is one of the most dynamic basketball players in the county this season and a key reason the Hawks (11-2 overall and in the Howard County league) are one of the county's top teams. He leads River Hill in scoring with a 14.8 average, and his defensive skills are equally impressive. Barnes normally guards the opposing team's top scoring threat and averages a team-high six steals.

Increasingly in the past few years, it has become easy to find the most dedicated athletes, regardless of their sport. They're in the weight room.Scientific, as well as athletic journals detail the advantages of weight training when done properly. More people are understanding how muscles are used in the performance of their sports.In the past, many people wrinkled their noses at the sport of weightlifting. Weightlifters attracted attention in Olympic years, but otherwise usually went unnoticed.

NEUBRANDENBURG, Germany -- If the old East German government ran a giant sports industry, Sportclub Neubrandenburg was one of its most productive factories.One of 25 "elite" sports training clubs in the former German Democratic Republic, Sportclub Neubrandenburg turned out more world-class gold-medal winners than most nations. SCN athletes have won seven Olympic gold medals and 48 in world and European master-class contests.And somewhat incongruously at a club renowned for runners and jumpers, most of the gold was won by canoe and kayak racers.

When 104 Arundel High students began to congregate on the school's tennis courts shortly before 9 a.m. last Wednesday, it looked like the start of a day of summer camp. Most of the students wore shorts and tank tops, appearing a bit sluggish at what many teenagers consider an early hour for the summer. But it became clear they weren't about to play kickball when three Arundel coaches broke them into 20 lines stretching across the court. In the next 65 minutes, the student-athletes - most of whom play football, but including girls from the field hockey, track and basketball teams - went through a series of jogging warm-up exercises, nine 100-yard sprints and stops at five stations in a steamy weight room.
