Hey guys as i said in the nutrition section im eating big and im on the designer athlete program.
i have a question…my body fat is at 13%…would doing the Designer Athele Program slow me down o nthe court cuz of the muscle gains? i was thinking of adding some sprints on wednesday after basketball practice (wednesday) as some plyos…should i also add some depth jumps and jump squats to keep the spring in my legs??
u guys get where im going with this? i know my legs will get stronger with this program but i dont want to lose the speed in my jumps…forgot the exact word for it (the spring) what u guys think?[/quote]
Well, judging by the fact that it’s actually the muscles that allow you to jump in the first place (as well as run, change direction, stand, basically move in any way) I highly doubt that improving your leg strength is going to hurt your jumping ability.
And if you really want to maximize your results, do a mass program (I assume that’s what the “Designer Athlete” program is, as you seem to be getting ansy about gainin muscle), and then do a speed strength/plyometric program. The first one will build muscle (contractile) tissue, and the second one will teach your body how to use that new muscle tissue to it’s maximal potential.
