^^ I don't see anything wrong with this Brandon Roy exercise unless I'm missing something. And unless this video was after his knee injuries, which it looks earlier than that to me ^^

Shame they couldn't keep a player like that in the league and healthy.

I know you don't see because I couldn't find the one I was reffering to.

The wiggins video wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. If he stays consistent with strength training, he's going to make some serious improvements; you can see he cares about his lifts (unless he's just going harder for the video). You definitely want him to get stronger/more stable on those lunges. He's 6'8 so squatting might be awkward for a while, as long as you teach it slowly while substituting an exercise he can get strong at (like trap bar deadlifts), he'd be fine. Trap-bar deadlifts are a miracle worker for lanky athletes who are noobs in the weight room, like him. The core-work and sled-work looked good. The boxing portion was a bit luls (pointless); either do it right or get back on the sled ;f

We had some semi-pro bball teams at this performance facility I interned at. No one approached their lifts like that. We had athletes db bench pressing 20 lb each hand, squatting the bar, lunges with 10 lb db's etc. They were more concerned with what was being played on the radio. So the wiggins video shows some promise.


(mostly speaking about the high school):

It's funny.. each sport has a majority of strength coaches who "do shit wrong", because most of them focus on some kind of distorted specificity to the sport.. however, you then have football strength coaches who may not know much of anything about the science, but they are all about: get your bench, squat, and olympic lifts up. It's just tradition and it makes sense because of how brutal the game is. If that was the default mindset for basketball (simply getting STRONGER), it would be scary what the competition would look like.

It all starts in high school. If somehow the default mindset was to get basketball players stronger, then they wouldn't know any better. If they are then exposed to "fluff" routines in college or pros, they'd know better, and those weak systems would gradually disappear.

pC!
