Default "Insight" into Strength coach

Ray Wright the new strength and conditioning coach promoted up from within speaks on HT.com

Does any of this mean anything to anybody? "Movement patterns"?

Dude is INTENSE! ....

Default Re: "Insight" into Strength coach

I think Ray Wright is a different guy. people have a perception that HCs and Strength coaches scream and holer but there are guys in the league that don't do that. For example, former Colts HC Tony Dungy was not one of those "scream and holer " guys and his players still produced.

I like what he has to say that the workout is more important then how many reps or weights you can bench. I think he will focus on creating a program to suit every players individual needs. Only time will tell how is program is working out but regardless I wish this guy good luck...

Movement patterns--I think what he means the patterns that they do to prepare them for what their skill is on the field. So, WR run patterns in a certain way, and quarterbacks practice the way they step back and throw. You work on the movements specific to your activity on the field. At least that's what it showed in the old S&C book that they had.

I haven't watched this yet, but I'm pretty sure he's talking about working out with movements that mimic the real world movements the athletes make. You want to mimic the recruitment patterns that athletes make to train the muscles to recruit in certain ways.

This is why a lot of people don't like the bench press because it's training the muscles to move in a way that don't really mimic very many "real world" actions. An incline bench makes more sense because that's closer to the same angle that the arms make to the body while blocking or while getting off a block.

This is a really great idea. Unfortunately, it's also something that Riley said and then didn't actually follow through on.

tonight on HT.com there is an interview with biscuit brisel and hes talking about "the new system" they're using. he says they're getting out of their comfort zones so things appear to actually be different.

also, have a look at David Anderson next to Mario Williams!

Default Re: "Insight" into Strength coach

My most recent blog post talks about Texans All Access a little, but I have some brief mention of some gossip relating to the strength program:

Quote:
One reason I like going to All Access is that I get to see a ton of people I know, from fans to players and people who work for the team. (And now readers of the blog too--you know who you are).

I received very complimentary feedback from people with the Texans who read the blog regularly. They believe that I try to be fair, try to analyze things without gratuitous cheap shots, and am pretty reasonable. However.....

Quite a number people wanted to express to me the same thing (all said independently and without me bringing it up as a point of discussion):

Though they really think strength and conditioning coach Ray Wright does a nice job and they very much like him personally, they believe it was a mistake not to extend the contract of Dan Riley. They believe that Riley did a magnificent job trying to keep players healthy while making them stronger, and did a particularly good job in rehabilitating injured players. That a lot is misunderstood publicly about Riley's work and philosophies, and that by trying to talk about it on the blog, I may have oversimplified things to the point of inaccuracy.

So there ya go. I put that there as "for what it's worth gossip" because it is anonymous, and I have no ability to contact members of the Texans for official comment. (And I'm pretty certain that even if I had that ability, they would not want to talk about this anyway).
