How WRs Can BOUNCE BACK After Injury

Often times WRs can Injure their knee with improper form when trying to make a cut full speed or even if they lack ankle/knee stability. So when you are cleared by a doctor, how can you come back from this? What exercises should you do and how should you do them? I think the best advice I can give you is to take things slow. You don’t want to rush back into making cuts going full speed, when you take a lot of time off you’re going to lack ankle and knee stability. I see it every year, when a WR takes a break after the season it takes him a few workouts to get that stability back. So that should be your main focus. Do a lot of 1 legged exercises in the gym like pistol squats or RDLs. But most importantly in the gym focus on building leg strength. That will help your body absorb more force when you make those fast twitch cuts. I highly recommend when it comes to on field training you do things at about 50% to start. Get used to cutting in stride and making sharp cuts but really emphasize taking things slow and having good form. Strike the ground on the arch of your foot not your heels and make sure you constantly have a slight bend to your knee/keep your feet inside your frame.
