Nothing that will hurt him .. not exactly the bread and butter of core work, but it is not of concern IMO.. only concern would be too much hip flexion in an individual that is already hip flexion dominant.. but nothing that will aggravate the knee directly..
it's tough to judge because i havent seen the rest of what he is given.. i would hope he is getting some form of legitimate hip extension (be it banded / bodyweight / an extreme example would be the reverse hyper)
was tough to tell what the very last guy was giving him at the end of the video .. i wouldn't classify it as core - looked like they were building up the cross pattern when he was on one leg, with the other leg in hip flexion and one arm overhead with the roller.. nothing bad here
overall what i see is, too many cooks in the kitchen.. you got coker who is attempting to blast traditional hypertrophy (with no attention to detail).. you got the guy in the middle of the video giving some core work - nothing bad but again there is better - and then you have the guy at the end giving stuff that borderlines on "too cute" ..
my issue is, there is just so much basic basic stuff, that he isn;t being given.. so many basic concepts not being implemented.. and the attention to detail/execution isn't there.. all he needs is one good trainer that "gets it"..
there are plenty of guys in NYC and jersey that fit this bill.. but at the same time, there are even more trainers that are out there, considered legit, that don't fit the bill.. so it is hard to blame KP.. because there is no way for him to know, until he gets the real deal, then the light-bulb goes off
strength and conditioning is like modern-day karate.. it is an extremely watered down profession
You need to stalk KP!!! We can't have him training and rehabbing wrong!! Get out there and hide in some bushes!! Stalk his gym. His home. His job!! Get it done!!!
lmao - naaa not my style.. not even my style to post that video.. and it has received opposition (if you saw my reddit post) .. but it's all good - everyone will have "their professional opinion"
i just felt the need to call bullsh*t - especially when a young star who has worked his whole life to get where he is, is at (IMO) high risk .. i've watched ball long enough to know when someone is the real deal .. while still a bit raw (especially his shot selection), i honestly see a HoF-caliber talent.. and by talent i mean everything (skillset, mentality, work ethic)..
for all the sh*t people give his brothers, they have instilled lots of good stuff into KP .. they want him to succeed and honestly cannot be blamed for who trains him.. they cannot be expected to know who is legit, who isn't.. which is why you see him working with so many different individuals.. so it's not like they aren't trying..
like i said, strength and conditioning is like modern-day karate.. most of the instructors/practices are bleh, but at the same time you still have guys like wonderboy thompson / GSP out there utilizing legitimate karate concepts on an elite level (obviously mixed in with MT/BJJ/wrestling/traditinoal boxing/etc)
if he goes down again, i have no doubt he will find someone legit to work with.. and even if he does suffer the worst (a blown acl), it is STILL recoverable even beyond his current capacity.. because like i have alluded to, his current capacity is operating at a fraction of its potential
Just do it!
