I will have to disagree. It is the trainers responsibility to motivate his/her trainee's. That is the purpose of a trainer. If we all had the motivation and commitment to workout on our own, why would anyone need trainers?

You as the trainer find a way, you don't make excuses. You find a way to get your trainees to do it properly. The trainer is the expert in this regard and they absolutely have to be assertive. The trainer has to get them on the same page as them. If that means making a deal with them, so be it. You have to display confidence in what you're preaching.

If you're going to expect the Head Coach to do the Trainers job, what is the purpose of the trainer? The head coach needs to be the head coach, not the trainer.


If the trainer isn't able to get to the million dollar kids, then find a new trainer that can do their job effectively.


I am not saying that Mike has to do the trainer's job. I am not saying the trainer (s) don't have a program in place. What I am saying is even if they get down in the face of a player there are 90 of them in TC it is difficult to be all places at one time and if the HC doesn't show up to verify that this is a priority there are some players who will not give it the attention it deserves. Once again it doesn't have to be the HC. Mike can designate it to position coaches to watch their group. The trainer isn't their to look for compliance. he is there to make sure they have the correct technique. They the player is going to his fullest range when stretching.

How many young kids think they are "bullet proof" so to speak? Most. Athletes even more so. Athletes that make it to the pros have had a higher degree of luck when it comes to avoiding injuries than other players. I am not saying none of them have ever had an injury. I am saying that, as a group, they have had less. None of those who have been injured have had a career ending injury. Obviously. Because of their greater resilience to injury there is going to be a degree of apathy to stretching. After all they have not needed to do so for the past 10-15 years so why start now?

A few years ago Mike made ST a priority. He actually showed up for ST practice and low and behold the ST group got better. The last few years has been different because of the player turnover they have not had the same quality on ST as they had in the past. Point is when the HC makes it a priority the players do too.

This year Mike is making the defense a priority.

He SAYS he's making hammy's a priority, but clearly he is not. I submit that injuries are a bigger factor keeping us from the big show than the defense. Just my own two cents.

If the Packers are gonna include salary bonuses for offseason workouts, surely they could include a clause for stretching or doing yoga of some sort.

Incentives for not having a pulled fucking hammy.


like to see that ... 20k bonus not to have a pulled hammy, and ACL tears - 1/2 your pay. Back injuries a beating ... and neck injuries - you get to be the training dummie for a week.

thanks Post received 1 applause.

10K per yoga session, something like that. As for neck injuries, 10k per acupuncture treatment.
