For the first time in his career, DeMarcus Ware missed games due to injuries in 2013. After one workout with the Denver Broncos, Ware believes his new team’s method of conditioning will help him bounce back and stay on the field in 2014.
“It’s an unconventional type of way of working out, but it’s the best way to keep guys on the field and keep them flexible, but also being able to maintain a guy through their whole career,” Ware said, via the Dallas Morning News. “We did sleds, we did leg slides, Keiser machines. You name it, it was in there. Really state-of-the-art. I’m really looking forward to just working out this type of way.
“It’s a whole different deal.”
The Dallas Cowboys’ strength and conditioning coach is Mike Woicik, who has a total of six Super Bowl rings--three with the Cowboys and, more recently, three with the Patriots--and is considered one of the best in the game. But for whatever reason, the Cowboys have struggled to stay healthy over the past few seasons. Over 2012 and 2013, in terms of games lost by starters due to injury, they were the third least healthy team in the league.
