Byrd: Rehab Training and Video of one of my Favorite Football Players

A torn hamstring, then pneumonia, yeah its been great! Sorry for the delay, but honestly I am so weak right now its embarrassing. The pneumonia really did a number on me. Thankfully I have tons of time before my leg will be 100%, so I dont have a full power meet picked out.

So the hamstring has come along pretty well with the Help of Paul Onied and his bag of tricks. I am on strict order to stay away from the straight bar. So everything has been the SSB, with a mix of box and free squats. Tons of belt squat work, and some direct hamstring work.

This week SSB looked like the following
3×5@ 1 plate
1×5@ 1 plate and a 25
1×5@ 2 plates
1×3@ 2 plates and a 25

I cant remember the bar weight but the last set was close to 300lbs. So that is a pretty good spot. The problem is I am so sore it hurts to walk!

Finished off the day with
3×60 sec walks on the belt squat
4×10 hip hinge on the belt squat

One of the hardest hitting players of all time!
