Trent Murphy is packing on the pounds

Trent Murphy began this offseason looking to find better ways to contribute in Redskins defensive coordinator Joe Barry’s scheme and become a more complete linebacker heading into 2016.

In mid-March that plan was altered as Murphy received a phone call from Barry telling the third year pro that the team needed him to gain thirty-plus pounds, and be ready to play on the defensive line this season. Murphy dove into the idea immediately with his work out coach Ian Danney. Danney runs Performance Enhancing Professional, which is located in Scottsdale, Arizona and is the place Murphy has trained the last two seasons.

When Murphy reported to Redskins Park in April he weighed in at an impressive 290 pounds.

Murphy recently spoke with the Washington Times about his offseason transition:

“You really have to embrace the grind, which he did,” Danney said. “When you get to a point you can start embracing the fire that’s burning in your legs as your friend, then you’re poised to make great gains and he definitely did that.

“It’s one of those things whether it was by design or by default, they picked the right guy to ask to do that because he’s not going to back down from a challenge and not get mad about it. That worked out well for the Redskins.

“It wasn’t uncommon for him to lay on the ground motionless for 20 minutes after our workouts,” Danney said

Return to Sport

• To return from an injury requires time and help.  The body is capable of healing on its own, but the level and speed of healing can be greatly influenced by correct biomechanics, specific exercise, manual therapy, nutrition and supplementation (and various injections). There is clearly a middle ground between rehab and performance training that is grossly neglected.
