    I know, forgive me please!

    Yes certain excercises can strengthen certain muscles. Your right his regiment allows for explosivness and speed now he needs to add that regiment that will toughen him up.

    I understand the bolded part; I've been a weightlifter for good portion of my life. I just do not feel that doing a bunch of squats and deadlifts are going to make a drastic difference in his injury prevention. While I like the idea of strength and power coming from bigger lifts, I think it is up to Polamalu to determine whether or not his workouts are successful. The only thing that I dislike about his routine is that he supposedly does not lift a weight greater than 20 pounds, although I am not sure if that is accurate. I wouldn't mind seeing him add a Caveman Training day to his current routine, though. Check it out if you haven't seen it before:
