    Yancy McKnight

    Just for the record...I'm extremely thoroughly impressed.
    This guy is top notch when it comes to personal strength and
    conditioning, Ive worked with some of the best ever and there is no doubt
    in my mind that he is right up there.I bring this up because I spent the last
    2 weeks doing a McNight workout and it just reinforces the fact that this guy really knows what he is doing.
    I only wanted to bring this up to let CF know that the Strength and Conditioning
    Program is in very good hands.
    The progress of the current players is phenomenal.
    I'm really glad this guy is on our staff.I have no doubt you'll notice the difference
    come this fall.
    Just letting you all know.
    Go Cyclones.

    Cool. It is good to hear. Lots of injuries happen (or don't happen) because of what takes place with the strength and conditioning programs.

    Very interesting. I'd be interested in the details of an average 2-week cycle of his program, for my own benefit, if you'd be willing to provide any insight.

    I'd love to but thats the beauty of McNight...everything he does is custom.
    Each person has a specialized workout based on there strengths and
    weaknesses.

    I could PM you my workout but I'm afraid it would kill you...No2.

    I thought we've really improved physically after getting this guy. I thought it really showed the first year even. They are getting better and better every year, and I can't wait to see what he does with a much improved training facility,.

    it would be interesting to know but I'm guessing yancy wouldn't like his secrets out there so i understand why it's secretive

    Thats great to hear. I have read great things about him. The biggest question mark when you lose seniors is how will the new guys step into their roles? Will they be big and physical enough on the O and D lines to replace 4th or 5th year seniors. The young guys we have playing at a high level speaks volumes for McKnight (and others)

    My question to you is, how is the speed program? Im very curious as to what McKnight has Knott and Klein doing. Those two guys are a great 40 time at the combine away from being top 2 rounds in the NFL draft. And their speed is essentially the only thing that limits them as it is. (Not that they're slow).

    Re: Yancy McKnight

    And here we were told that Chiz had the great workout staff. Of course we were getting injuries. Now it seems like are athletes are injured less seriously as a group. Yancy in switching up techniques deopending on the person is a great effort.....like a specialized diet for every person on the team....
