Saquon and Todd Gurley work out side by side

gidiefor : Mod : 7/11/2018 11:10 am
I think Saquon has more power than Gurley - and he's certainly smoother - at least in this videos

going from a 315 deadlift

right into a a 42 inch box jump from that distance shows ridiculous explosion.
Todd Gurley  
Coach Red Beaulieu : 7/11/2018 11:19 am : link
Is a weird name. I mean Saqoun is kind of too, but strange seeing a young man named Todd. I would have picked on him and made fun of his name in school.

Another useless troll. At least be funny or clever if you have nothing better to do with your life. This is fucking embarrassingly stupid.

And you would've gotten your ass kicked for acting like a tool. Seems you never grew out of it.

Anyway, no reason to let a dumb troll de-rail the thread.

I really can't wait to see Barkley on the field. Athletic ability doesn't always mean production - but he is really just off the charts. He's an incredible specimen.
If you're not  
lugnut : 7/11/2018 11:41 am : link
totally jazzed to see Barkley play, you have no pulse.

I think the only thing that derails this guy is injury.
can't wait  
RasputinPrime : 7/11/2018 1:08 pm : link
to be excited about a running play for the first time in too many years.
Thatís a great workout  
Tuckrule : 7/11/2018 1:19 pm : link
Heavy weight. Followed by an explosiveness movement utilizing the same muscle groupings. I may try this.....using 135 and a 24 inch box lmao. What a freak athlete

Gurley pauses? -- he looks really uncomfortable about placing and releasing that weight after the lift -- he drops rather than places it -- and problems finishing the set and transitioning to the jump -- even making the jump he looks off balance -- awkward

SB is smooth as butter doing it -- showing real strength with the finish and transition - places the weight down and whoosh he's up and balanced on the platform

well maybe not drop ---- but awkward -- even with the running side by side -- SB is running smooth and effortlessly in position - whereas Gurley is jerking up and down and swinging his hands --
Todd is a classic name

was very popular in the 1800's.
Thatís insane.

So glad we drafted this kid. Going to be fun. Just hoping our OL is at very least respectable. If they are .... yeah boy!!!
I can never tell when  
joeinpa : 7/12/2018 8:11 am : link
Someone is trying to be funny or just trolling

But even at that, Even as a kid, I always wondered how some could be so cruel to others, especially the disadvantaged.

Making fun of a name would come under the category of, "Really"
Gurley had to wind up before taking the jump  
Canton : 7/12/2018 8:31 am : link
Barkley transitioned to his jump without a wind up for extra lift.

Not that it's important, but are you sure that trap bar is 60 pounds? I've seen trap bars range from 30-60 pounds. You might be right, but the headline for the video (coming from where Barkley trained) listed the weight at 315, indicating a 45-pound bar.

If you're right, all the more impressive.

Its a Rogue trap bar. 60lb

The 315 caption comes from the Sports Illustrated retweet, not the trainers
