    He's not going to make money as a motivational speaker... that's for sure.

    He looked nervous...maybe he's a little camera shy.

    I could care less about his public speaking abilities as long as he gets that weightroom rocking.

    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 :scarygirl:" 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...

    Evidently, the same effect on his personal secretary while she was trying to transcribe his interview.

    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!

    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:

    page 5 talked about supplements.. who was it that got busted inadvertently, not because of steriods but because a supplement contained a banned substance?

    I know a bunch of friends I should email this to ... lot of them depend on supplements to lose weight instead of doing the old fashion, eat right and exersize

    You can tell that he's not good in front of a camera, rocking back and forth and his lil hand gestures....LOL.

    Plenty of great coaches werent good in front of a camera so don't take it to seriously.
