This is my In-Season Basketball strength training log. I figured I could just post a log here, for several reasons:
To give some people inspiration on how you could work out during the season, not to only maintain but to actually gain muscle and strength
To give others a starting point on how to train during the season
To f****** gain back the strength I lost.
To my person: I am a 5’9’’, 157 LB (8.8%BF) Combo guard, playing in germany. I play for two different teams, one team in a mens league and one team in the U19 Pro League.
I am really into strength training and athletic training. My best bench ever was 225x3, best trap bar deadlift 365x1 and my best squat 300x1. Now somehow my bench and squat numbers (i posted about this/i don’t deadlift during the season), have gone down. So I decided instead of taking it easy during the season and “just” maintain, I want to gain. I want to get back to where I was and then some!
My regular season goes at least until march, so we will se what happens.
Enjoy reading and don’t wait to ask questions or make suggestions.
