Murray, Carter MMA training
Free safety Quinton Carter said he and running back DeMarco Murray were involved in some mixed martial arts training this past summer in Las Vegas, their hometown. Carter said MMA works on different muscles.
“Sparring works on your shoulder,” Carter said. “Punching the bag gets your endurance up as well as lifting weights. It’s not weightlifting but body weight stuff, high rep things.”
Carter said the MMA training has helped Murray get in the best shape he’s been.
“Seeing (Murray) doing that he improved his speed and power,” Carter said. “He has good size, everything you want in a running back… He’s bounced back. He hasn’t had any injuries this past season. He’s about two years out from that. I’m looking for him to do some big things this year. Hopefully he can rush for 2,000 (yards).”
Carter and Murray also are among a few players that will begin yoga class next week.
“I need it,” Carter said. “That’s why I enrolled. It helps me stay flexible.”
After undergoing MMA training, would Carter consider getting in the ring?
“No,” Carter said. “I’ll never be a boxer.”
