    Unorthodox or not that stuff he's doing looks intense; and if doing it gets him back to being healthy and able to play at the level he was at before then by all means keep doing it man.

    I saw part of his workout (and an interview) on NFLN--sure looked intense to me! With as flexible as it's made him, he should "bend" most times, rather than break

    Polamalus' training

    http://www.nfl.com/videos?videoId=09000d5d808feae0

    Polamalu felt better using isokinetic training in California.
    Looks like he was working hard to get his muscles to fire and add
    explosive power.

    Isokinetic: Exercise performed with variable resistance to a movement,
    so that no matter how much effort is exerted, the movement takes place at a
    constant speed. Such exercise is used to test and improve muscular strength and endurance, especially after injury. Pertaining to the force of a human muscle
    that is applied during constant velocity of motion.

    Cool stuff, too bad we'll have to wait until he gets better to see if it worked or not.
