Coach Jason's Training Tips
How to make the most of your lockdown as a Basketball Player
Want to get STRONGER, FASTER & JUMP HIGHER??
Calling all athletes who are in-shape, out of shape or dealing with an injury in LOCKDOWN!
Sydney has been in Lockdown 2.0 for over three months, obviously nobody wants it but it’s a harsh truth that we face. Most people during this time are obviously anxious, worried and maybe even scared with all the uncertainty that they are facing. I however view it differently…
Have you ever heard of the saying ‘When life gives you lemons, make lemonade’? Just with anything in life there’s always positives and benefits of any situation, it's just your perspective (how you look at it). A big positive during Lockdown is having a lot of EXTRA TIME ON YOUR HANDS and that means opportunity. And the biggest opportunity for young athletes is to get started in their strength training journey.
I know what you're saying… But Coach Jase, there's no gym access during lockdown! And whilst that may be true, what you need to know is that it is completely unnecessary to need a gym if you’ve had less than 4 - 6 months experience of strength training or are currently detrained (which is likely most of you).
Why is a gym unnecessary?
Why is a gym unnecessary you ask?
Because strength training requires you to have certain standards to meet (just like any sport) so that you will be safe and prepared for the higher demands of advanced strength training that will yield tremendous results to help you in basketball That’s why you should join our Virtual 7-Day Basketball Bootcamp! It’s the perfect place to start getting back your Skill, Strength & Fitness so you can be prepared for the high demands and challenges when the competitive season gets back! P.S. We have Foundations! … The perfect program to start your strength training journey (continues on after Bootcamp) that needs minimal to no equipment at home and will prepare you for the gym after the lockdown!
I empower young athletes and people in pain to regain confidence in their bodies so they can Do What They Love to Do and Do It To their Best Ability! I’ve worked with numerous Professional teams such as Sydney Kings & New South Wales Waratahs and youth athlete development centres such as League Fit Academy and Manly United Football Club.
