Although we have never had the opportunity to meet or visit with Coach Mark Asanovich we really like the things he has to say about strength training and the use of supplements. What you find below is his bio taken from the Official web site of the Jacksonville Jaguars, and our list of the Top 10 Mark Asanovich Quotes. Enjoy.

"Mark Asanovich is in his first season as the strength and conditioning coach for the Jaguars and his ninth season as an NFL coach.

In 2002, Asanovich was the assistant strength and conditioning coach of the Baltimore Ravens. He was the head strength and conditioning coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1996 through 2001 working under former coach Tony Dungy. Asanovich brought to the Jaguars a new strength and conditioning regime that emphasizes individual supervision of player workouts. The cornerstone of his program is to ⌠coach reps rather than merely count reps. It is his belief that players who are coached in the weightroom will develop better results from what is inspected rather than what is expected.

With the support of Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver, Asanovich oversaw a $260,000 renovation of the Jaguars weightroom before the start of the 2003 off season conditioning program. Wayne Weaver has given us the resources to win and Jack Del Rio and his staff have given us their support, Asanovich said. The players have responded and have garnered the results.

Asanovich spent the 1995 season as assistant strength and conditioning coach for the Minnesota Vikings. From 1987 to 95, he was the strength and conditioning coach at Anoka High School (Minneapolis, Minn). In 1984, he began his coaching career as a graduate assistant coach at Ohio State, staying there two years. In 1986 he coached at The Citadel.

Asanovich, 43, has published several articles in his field of study and served as a member of the Minnesota Governor's Council on Health & Physical Fitness. He earned a bachelor's degree in education from St. Cloud State and a master's degree in exercise science from Ohio State.
