Many San Antonio Basketball players can have strength and conditioning decline during their actual season. The time challenges of the season can make it very difficult to maintain an aggressive program. Access to facilities while traveling on the road to tournaments, etc. can also be a challenge. Fatigue in another reason many youth basketball players don’t maintain a strength training program.
We believe the quickest fix is to fit in a quick training session immediately after your game or tournament using your own body weight. In other words, eliminate the possibility for excuses. Try to get them done while the body is still warm (less than 30 minutes after the game.) Make it quick and light as we are primarily focused on maintenance and injury prevention. Here is a sample workout you should be able to complete in under 15 minutes.
2 Sets Wide Pushups
2 Sets Narrow Pushups
2 Sets of Dips Off A Chair
Pullups if Possible
Crunches (Do These Before Legs and Not to Exhaustion)
