Isaac Redman knows that he is going to be busy during training camp as the team’s top back with Rashard Mendenhall on the PUP list. So he is making sure he takes care of his body, resting when he has to, getting in the hot tub and one of the most important things…getting in the cold tub.
“You never want your legs to get tired so I am always in the cold tub,” said Redman. “I get in the cold tub before the walk through, after the walk through, trying to stay ahead of the game. I make sure I get in the cold tub.”
While it might seem like an easy way to keep the legs in shape, imagine immersing your body in a cold tub that is about 56 degrees.
“You can never get used to it,” said Redman. “We have a tradition when you get in you have to go all of the way in. You have to dive all the way in with your head and it takes off the initial shock and you can sit down with no problem.”
Redman is apparently doing the right thing because he is earning praise from those who have to bring him down.
“He is a hard runner. You have to wrap him up,” said linebacker LaMarr Woodley. “When you hit him you can’t think he is falling down because he is spinning and he keeps his feet moving forward for yards.”
Cornerback Ike Taylor also likes what he sees in the rugged back.
“He is tough,” said Taylor. “He was a state champ in wrestling. He is hard to bring down. Isaac is tough.”
