True, and you know as well as I do that NFL conditioning is way more complicated than simple muscle building.

There are several things meant by Ivory improving strength and conditioning...

Proper diet, what to eat, when to eat, etc
Proper stretching before game
Proper stretching after the game
How to treat problem muscles
How to treat soreness after the game
How to lift
What to lift
When to lift
When to rest
When to ice
When to heat
Frequency of lifting
Frequency of resting
Power versus endurance training


A real conditioning expert could write a freaking novel on proper NFL conditioning and how each and every player is different.

Thats what is meant by proper strength and conditioning. It has nothing to do with how muscular a guy is.

yep, I think they are called Avulsion Fractures. I had a few on my legs and feet when I was a RB. Happens when your muscle is stronger than your bone. Literally rips the surface of the bone off when you make a move.

You can over do working out.

And there isn't much you can do about it if that's it. Except draft a bell cow back.

Yeah I know, I suffer from this problem.....well ok no I'm just kidding. But I sure hope he can play. It really opens things up for Drew when we can get the running game going. If this guy could stay healthy, he'd be a top running back in the league for sure.

Ironically, he might benefit more from a program like yoga to put some suppleness into his body.

Ya,lol, thats 6 weeks. I think one of the problems with the NFL is they over condition allot of these guys, especially RB's. You need body fat. They need to figure out the bone strength to muscle equation on a player by player basis, it might stop some of these injuries. Funny enough Ivory might have hurt himself more by working out at a higher level, instead of taking some time off. RB talents are mostly in the head, you cant see anything when you run, its mostly instincts, timing.
