    Do you guys think there are so many hamstrings these days compared to before, because there are more weightlifting going on?

    Guys maximizing (or going beyond max) their muscle mass...... leading to building but weakening of these things?

    I wonder if guys in the 50's & 60's pulled hammies all the time before everyone was such a finely-tuned muscle-bound athletic specimen.

    I went into detail before in another thread and am not going to again but to summarize: I think the hamstring injuries come from the newer age weight training that gives you too dominant of a quad, specifically front squatting which is all the rage now. I hate it. It does not train the hamstring like a regular squat does.

    I just saw that. That was a weird freakish leg whip/leg stuck in the turf. That did not look like your normal hammy epidemic mechanism for injury. I don't think anyone would protected from that.

    Having been a Packers fan since 1956 and being a religious fan since the mid 60's I don't recall such a rash of hamstring injuries as there have been in the NFL in the last decade.
    But then on some days I can barely recall my name.:D

    I don't remember the exact physics equation......but when 2 masses collide......there is force....or something like that. With guys getting, bigger, stronger and faster......something has to give.......I wasn't around in the 50 and 60's to know what injuries were like, but I know when your biggest strongest guys were playing O-line in the 70's and not colliding at top speeds with each other, there had to be fewer injuries.

    Yep, I'm frustrated over what could have been and what is. I don't like the prospects of waiting another year for potential salvation.
