Cowboys have strength and conditioning problem

  • In the world of NFL media, whom should they draft, almost all of the discussion revolves around the players on the field and the coaches on the sidelines or in the press box. What were the play calls, and how much should they pay player X? These questions occupy most of our attention and dialogue., was it a catch, how did they execute, did the quarterback make the right decision

    but they are not the only aspects that affect the success of the team on the field. Let’s look at a problem that plagued the Dallas Cowboys in 2017 in a very significant way.,This makes sense considering these are the things most easily evident to interested observers

    including extremely important players,For several years, going back to Miles Austin and Matt Johnson, dealing with hamstring injuries. In more recent years that phenomenon has also included back injuries., the Cowboys seemed to always have multiple players

    In the 2017 season, Orlando Scandrick, Jourdan Lewis, Sean Lee,Authentic Jahri Evans Jersey, while Tyron Smith,Authentic Dean Lowry Jersey, Chidobe Awuzie, and James Hanna dealt with varying degrees of hamstring injuries which cost them significant time in training camp or landed them on the injury report,Authentic Kyle Murphy Jersey,womens Lane Taylor Jersey, La’el Collins, Brian Price,Authentic Lane Taylor Jersey,womens Jake Ryan Jersey, Xavier Woods, and Benson Mayowa dealt with back injuries that landed them on the injury report during the season., Sean Lee, DeMarcus Lawrence

    That’s 11 players, Woods, which dealt with either back or hamstring injuries in one season. Three of those players, over 20 percent of a 53-man roster, Smith and Lawrence, play premium positions for the Cowboys, were valuable contributors to the team who are considered up-and-coming impact players at important positions., like Awuzie, Lee, and have All-Pro seasons on their resumes as among the best in the NFL at their positions when healthy. Others, Lewis and Collins

    Britt Brown,This is important because this grouping of injuries signifies a specific hole in the Cowboys’ current strength and conditioning program that must be addressed by coach Mike Woicik, and their staff., along with trainers Jim MaurerAuthentic Kentrell Brice Jersey,

    this is a chain of muscles that runs down the back of the body from the neck to the legs. This is an extremely important group for some very important parts of the game of football. First is the ability to generate explosive power.,The hamstring and the back are two of largest muscles in the group known as the posterior chain. As its name suggestswomens Kyle Murphy Jersey,

    For virtually every player on the football field, whether slowing down a bull rusher or moving a defender out of a gap in the run game,Authentic Davon House Jersey, creating sudden explosive power is extremely important, requires a significant amount of power from the glutes and lower back.,womens Davon House Jersey,womens Jahri Evans Jersey, which requires strong hamstrings and being able to control an opponent at the line of scrimmage, and the hamstrings and glutes are major players in firing the lower body to create that power. Additionally,womens Dean Lowry Jersey,Authentic Blake Martinez Jersey,womens Kentrell Brice Jersey,Authentic Jake Ryan Jersey, the ability to decelerate quickly

    pull ups,There could be a number of causes for the injury plague in this area for the Cowboys. One possibility: a lack of symmetry in their training with too much emphasis on the anterior chain (chest,womens Blake Martinez Jersey, and rows., quads etc.) through exercises like bench press and squats without incorporating enough compound posterior work through moves like dead lifts

    causing the hamstring to overextend,Another possibility: poor running form, which can lead to injury if the muscle isn’t strong enough to take the strain., reaching the front leg too far in front of the body

    Or: perhaps not enough concentrated stretching and maintenance work on this grouping. There is clearly a problem, there is no reason it shouldn’t be able to fix it., and a preventable one. With the technology and information available to the team
