Tedd Ginn, Jr Works Out With Dr. Sharif Tabbah of Athletix Rehab

Blog

New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara has drawn plenty of attention with his wild offseason workouts, practicing difficult stability exercises and testing the limits of his athleticism. And his results have piqued the curiosity of teammates like wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr., who traveled to Miami to train with Dr. Sharif Tabbah of Athletix Rehab & Recovery — the guy who’s been coming up with all of these challenges to help Kamara improve.

Dr. Tabbah shared a video of Ginn exercising his lower-body mobility to develop better burst out of his stance. They have Ginn carefully stepping through ankle-high hurdles before leaping onto a box — but there’s a twist. While suspended in mid-air, Ginn must kick his right leg up higher and then plant with his left leg to balance himself on top of the box. See it for yourself:

This exercise is perfect for Ginn because it’s not just working on a hole in his skills set (moving quickly from a standing position, rather than outracing opponents once in stride) but it’s strengthening his lower body to prevent wear and tear. Ginn missed most of the 2018 season after undergoing a knee scope during the Saints’ bye week; he returned in time for the playoffs, but his contributions were limited.

Expanding his “toolbox” by becoming a more well-rounded athlete and working hard to limit further injury risk is exactly how Ginn has lasted so long in the NFL. The Saints will need all the weapons they can get to go win another Super Bowl with Drew Brees at quarterback. And Ginn is clearly taking his offseason seriously to prepare for that.
