Toning Up with Technology

Mike Lawson • Technology • April 27, 2007

A recent show on the ESPN television network featured a roundtable discussion with several famous veteran football players from the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. The conversation focused, among other topics, on the use of weights and training, and whether their widespread use made the players of today better than the players of yesteryear. One of the older players stated he simply did not believe that lifting weights and training made you a better football player. However, one of the younger vets suggested that, although you may not be a better football player mentally, it is very likely you would be a faster and stronger athlete with the use of weights and training and, therefore, a better player, overall. Could the same analogy be made regarding the use of technology in the field of music?
