Basketball, although some may disagree, is a contact sport. Setting screens, boxing out, and taking charges demand strength and toughness. Not only does basketball require physical toughness, but mental toughness as well with the amount of endurance it takes to compete for an entire game intermixed with cutting, jumping, shuffling, acceleration, and sprinting. Every one of the before mentioned traits are are taught in our personal basketball training throughout the off season for basketball players.
Having been the Strength & Conditioning Coach of a high school basketball team that had never had a year round program, I’ve seen first-hand the make up of these players. While some of the better athletes I’ve trained based on size, a physical mentality was not there in every player. Pushing past a comfort zone was something we worked on everyday. Once my basketball players started to see results on the court, I saw their effort levels raise beyond a place they had ever thought possible. They went from a team that was 12-16 to 19-11. Completely understanding that Strength & Conditioning is just one piece of the pie that goes into a successful basketball season, it is important to develop a physical mind set on the court and a quality strength program is exactly where it should start.
