Brown showed glimpses of last season as to why the Ravens selected him in the first round, as he stopped a franchise with seven touchdown catches while playing with a perch in his left leg after undergoing Lizfrenk surgery less than a year ago. Record was made. One of Brown’s instructors, PJ Quarry, said Ravens fans have yet to see the real Browns.
“Interviews with three trainers, who have worked with Brown, the dynasty led one player to latch onto domination and was healthy to do it,” Scheffer wrote. “He’s stronger now, a more complete receiver. But it’s not the social-media-highlights that have awakened him. It’s Brown’s full commitment to remodeling his body, almost off the ground. “
Quarry said that his early season with Brown focused on building strength in his legs.
“We took it all the way back, like, basic walk,” Quarry said. “Moving stuff, the proper way to move, build it, and then you’re going from there.”
Brown quickly moved forward. The next step was to get up as fast, or at least as fast as it was before surgery. To that end, Brown worked with Daniel Harper, a high school track coach and coach of a club team. Harper inserted Brown through drills that focused on the upward movement.
“During a workout set, Harper Brown had climbed the first hill with one leg – the bottom half with his left, the upper half to his right, no stops allowed,” Shaffer wrote. “It was like asking someone to climb a ladder with a toe.”
As is evident by Brown’s physical appearance in his video, he is also in bulk. After playing at about 170 pounds in Oklahoma, the 5-foot-9 Brown told Bleacher Report that she was down to 157 at one point last season. Now that “solid” is 180, Quarry said.
Harper has also served as Brown’s strength and conditioning coach and nutritionist.
“Brown’s vein-popping, eye-catching physique is rigorously fabricated, the product of both open (bench press) and closed (back squat) kinetic-chain workouts,” Schaffer wrote.
Harper stated that “there is no pointless practice; every movement has a functional application.”
“Says Brown needs to defeat press coverage against a big cornerback,” Schaffer wrote. “Harper set him in a push-up position, his hands cutting a medicine ball. The goal is not just to move down and up. It’s about to explode over a 6-inch barrier, absorbing the impact. Is, another medicine has to be done. Ball push-ups, then burst on the same barrier over and over again. “
Quarry said: “He’s doing it the right way. His body understands, ‘Well, I got this 15 extra, but we know how to get on with it.” And he doesn’t seem to have lost even a step. If anything, he is more explosive and maybe even faster at 180.
