    Cam Jurgens NOT injured again

    I'm having a hard time deciding exactly who is eating crow at this point...

    Duval's S&C - Year 2

    "a bit high" Lol, yeah, just a bit... I wish they would put a lot less emphasis on 1rm numbers.

    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    This is really well stated.

    Think force vectors instead of body position. A front squat more closely mimics the force production needed to block. It's also safer, though it does require more skill which isn't always easier for the s&c staff with 100+ novice to intermediate lifters.

    In football, the resistance is generally encountered in front of the athlete, especially linemen. Would emphasize back squat and deadlift more in my speed athletes. Posterior chain builds speed. Different positions have different requirements for s&c.

    Duval's S&C - Year 2

    I think a lot of the supposed increases in strength were due to different styles of movements. In my opinion the front squat is far more you useful in football than a back squat but the numbers are smaller, especially amongst novice and intermediate lifters. Technique is certainly more sensitive in a front squat which limits a lot of non barbell athletes.

    Good bumper plates have an internal metal disc and that disc won't detach from the rubber portions like the cheaper Rogue stuff. More likely, they just get dirty and look "worn" after use and for a showpiece weightroom, it wouldn't be quite as sharp looking. As far as squats: Front<High Bar Backsquat<Low Bar backsquat. There might be a 20% difference between front and high bar, and another 10% from high bar to low bar back squats.

    Huskers to Have Area Codes on Helmets

    I guess this is a thing we do now. Saw a picture of an area code on the front "label" of the helmet, above the facemask, similar to how UCF did it last year.

    I wish nothing but the best for him. Except against the Broncos, then, maybe just an "off" day or something.
  10. Disappointing if true.

    Duval's conditioning starts Monday. UCF players share.

    A power clean is just an indication that the hips don't descend below the knees during the lift. Full clean (from the floor), hang cleans (high hang, low hang, pocket, etc), and box cleans, among others could all be done "power" or full (squat cleans isn't a term used outside of CrossFit). I wonder if these guys are squatting high bar or low bar in the back squat. If they have been using front squat for a couple of years and switch to a low bar back squat, the numbers they're lifting are going to go up by a very large amount regardless of whether they are actually stronger. I actually think the front squat translates to football better than a back squat. I really can't see a reason to have football players snatch at any significant level of effort. That's an incredibly technical lift for barbell athletes and would have a lot of injury potential for most football players.

    My guess is that he got it caught between the bar and the rack after a squat if he's grabbing outside of the hooks, which is likely for guys that size.. That would hurt. I've always been paranoid about that when re-racking weights.

    Khalil Davis Injury

    I'm guessing he got it caught between the bar and the rack during squats, which would suck. Can't really imagine how else this would happen.

    It's tacky. But... kids... This young man seems to have some personality and maybe just a bit of that ever important confidence. I sincerely hope that he can back it up.

    RB Maurice Washington [Nebraska-Signed LOI]

    Really hoping to hear on this guy soon.
