So I have completed week 2 in Bradenton at IMG Academies. I wish the heat in the title of this blog had been the temperature. Alas not, just like the rest of the USA we experienced a cold snap here. But, this did not put a damper on the intensity of my work outs. I was joined by Angelo Taylor who made the week fun. Hes a work horse but also a good laugh. He brings such nice balance to practice.
I've basically been in a coma everyday after practice but hey ho not a problem in my book. lol
The good thing about being down here is all of the facilities and technology that is available for use. This week I worked with the guys from OPTOGAIT. My starts session was very productive because of the on site feedback we was able to get on my stride length and power.
Its somewhat difficult not to be overwhelmed with all of the information that was given. I joked at the start of the session with the technical guys. Asked them not to send my back to my apartment with my feelings hurt. lol
The good thing is Loren understands the info. He was also able to help them manipulate the system to do more than what was on the tin so to speak.
A great session was had and I did walk away with one vital piece of information that was flagged.
My crash course in NFL Combine is coming along nicely. Warming up with the players on the odd day and helping them go through their paces as they prepare for their 40 yard sprint. They think I'm a blessing as I help thing with starts and acceleration. The 40 yard sprint time can put $$$$ on their future contracts. So sprint days for them are no joke. They also let me sit on on meetings and sessions that they have. This week that included a presentation by Under Armour (sponsors of the NFL Combine) and Trigger Therapy.
Wednesday this week was our regeneration day which consisted of a toned down work out and ice bath and pool regeneration. No i'm not in the pool with them. (cause I cant swim) yeah yeah I know. Whatever lol
Check out the guys in the pool the jokes continue on land and in water. lol
Tomorrow is group yoga. I will try to post some video next week of us getting our stretch and sweat on.
