Exclamation Greg Oden Becoming A Beast !!!!!

http://blog.oregonlive.com/behindbla..._bad_oden.html

I have been awed recently by the sight of Greg Oden, who has been practically living in the Blazers weight room now that he is off his crutches.

The first thing that pops out is his upper-body. His shoulders are bursting, and his biceps are now cut and defined.

And get this: A high-ranking Blazers source told me that Oden today still has the same body-fat percentage (7.8 percent) as he did when the Blazers drafted him, yet he has gained nearly 30 pounds, bringing him near 280 pounds.

Translation: That's 30 pounds of muscle that has been attached to his upper-body (he hasn't been able to do any lower body weight training because of his knee surgery).

And I tell you, it's noticeable when you see him in short sleeves. He's not quite Karl Malone ripped, but his body has definitely taken to the weight program of Bobby Medina. And remember, Oden wasn't able to lift during college because he was recovering from a wrist injury. So imagine what this kid is going to look like after 10 months more of working out in the weight room.

Yikes.

If he's gained 30 pounds and has maintained the same body fat percentage, doesn't that mean he has only gained (1-0.078) * 30 = 27.7 pounds of muscle?

well done, beat me to it.

when is the prognosis/schedule for Oden returning? when will he be able to shoot around, practice, play, etc?

No because chances are he probably gained a little fat too but the ratio is still the same.

A guy with a bad body alignment (one leg shorter than the other) and a bad knee gaining 30 pounds while doing NO lower body is a good thing?

My thoughts exactly, if you thought him playing before was bad on his knee, then the stress thats going to be applied to that knee now is going to be ugly. Hope he makes a full and swift recovery but I doubt that he's going about it the right way with the added bulk.

I have the same question as well. Also a 250 lb guy gaining 30 lbs of muscle in less than half a year sounds fishy.
