SPOTLIGHT ON: WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
After graduating MCCC, Robert Thompson attended Georgia Southern University where he earned his bachelor’s degree. He went there to continue his study of Exercise Science that began with John’s teaching and influence. It was there that Robert really shaped his views on strength and conditioning. With a very good foundation in Exercise Science from Mercer he was able to transition into all of his classes at Georgia Southern very easily, if not better than some students that had been there for two previous years.
In 2008, he destroyed his lower back, herniating l4-l5 and distorting his lumbar curve. A blessing in disguise as he was forced out of his training comfort zone. Robert had to find ways that a broke student can rehabilitate an injured back to enable him to start weight training and playing sports again. Utilizing his dual education from MCCC and GSU and constantly reading methods of strength and conditioning, Robert was able to get back to a functioning level.
Once he was somewhat able to stand up, he joined the Rugby football club. He was not the best player, but through proper strength training his strength and size allowed him to start. Besides playing for the Georgia Southern Rugby Club, he ran the strength and conditioning programs for the team, and still does. GSU is known as one of the bigger, stronger, hardest hitting clubs in the Georgia Rugby Union.
