Default Out with the Machines!

I wasn't really wanting to start a new thread, but I was unable to find where to post this info.

Anywho, it appears Ray has had the same thoughts as many here on the board. Other than myself, Pencil Neck, steroids and Vinny should like the direction the Texans are going with their S&C program.

Quote:
The program this year was designed by new head strength and conditioning coach Ray Wright to focus on isolating muscles groups and preventing injury.

“I think he is going to switch it up this year with muscle memory type routines. You get so used to doing a certain routine that your muscles get used to that. When you switch it up a bit, it gets other muscles in your body that you haven’t worked out or smaller muscles that you don’t usually work

To emphasize muscle isolation, Wright has redesigned the weight room, removing a handful of weight machines and adding free weight stations.

Wright also has added optional yoga and Jiu Jitsu classes to increase the players’ flexibility.
I like the fact they're adding more free weights. I also love the addition of yoga and jiu jitsu. I took Tai Quan Do during my short stint in College football and it was a night and day difference in flexibility.

Thoughts?

I like that the Yoga class is optional. Kind of a "hey, who isn't here?" approach...

I'm cool with the changes, as long as our guys don't get too heated with the jiu-jitsu and let their pride get in the way where they refuse to tap and hyperextend a joint. Other than that, I'm OKl with it and I think the free weights are a good addition too.

I hear he's forcing the OL to take the jiu-jitsu classes so they can finally protect Schaub. The rest of the league will know that if they cheap shot him one more time, Winston is gonna go Ninja on their ass.

This is a good thing.

Some of the strongest powerlifters I've known practiced yoga along with their weight training.

Sounds great to me. Machine weights, from what I know, don't give the all round strength and protection to muscles that aren't used by the machine, so free weights for me is a great thing for them to be focusing on.

Plus, helping the players to keep in a good state of mind and nimble will only help.

Question: What are they doing with the "old" weight machines? That'd be a pretty cool thing to purchase for a home gym.

Depends what mood McNair is in.

They're either waiting in a closet, waiting for the next S+C to be hired, as the Texans injury jynx continues yet again.

Or, he gives them to a local High School, in order to get good press.

I'm good with all of the changes.

Too bad I got pummeled for suggesting that our S&C guru, Dan Riley should have been looked at being fired sooner than he was.

And I hope they do. It's about time they gear up for the next poor sap who tries a late hit. Someone better rise up and defend!

How many more months do we have? LOL

Screw that. A home gym should consist of a power cage, a bench, a couple of bars and a lot of plates. And a puke bucket.

Leave the machines for the Chrome N Tone down the street.

C'mon TPN, go ahead and admit it. It's all pilates and no free weights for you.

You can tell us the truth about how you really feel....
