Personally I felt the skinfold thing has been overdone and can set unrealistic targets for guys who basically run a bit endomorphic –
what we do is instead of worry about weight is try and set them a target goal of adding lean mass – so paradoxically they might actually gain weight to improve lean-fat ratio. Obviously the demands on throwers aerobically is not high :>>>> they only move 2 metres and then rest for 5 minutes!! That said I have seen more than a few 120kg plus boys run around 12 min 3 km!
While I agree completely where I think this may be an positive influence is that the less bodyfat the greater and faster the rates of recovery … just a thought.
