Wonder if Luongo ever tries this?

I find the pre-season fascinating for a few reasons 1) I have to anxiously wait to see how the athletes I train over the summer are doing at their pro camps and 2) there are always lots of tweaks and strains that pop up and this always gets me thinking about the ‘why’. The one that sticks in my head most recently is Luongo’s groin ‘tweak’.

I can’t help but think…hmmmmmmm!

Let me go over the argument from the training forum before I share my perspective.
