Hi everyone. Thanks for checking out my blog. For those of you who might not know who I am. My name is Wes, I'm a personal trainer with HealthPlex Fitness in Clifton Park, NY. If you’re here that probably means you're interested in my personal basketball training program. I'll be playing in a 25 and older men’s basketball league, with some pretty competitive basketball. I have roughly 10 weeks to implement and execute this program. So we will be talking about how the program is progressing from a design stand point in order to ensure we are peaking with our strength, agility, speed, and basketball fundamentals over the course of the next 10 weeks.
Right now I’m in week 2 of my personal basketball program. I'm still in the conditioning phase. Next week I plan on adding exercises with an actual basketball. When beginning a preseason program this far in advance I always like to commit the first two weeks for strictly conditioning and strength. The strength program I will be following is in continuation of my prior rehab and strength program, this will not limit your own training if you follow along at home. My rehab progress has continued along nicely over the course of the last 6 months!
Today's approach was our once a week strength day. You'll find below my actual workout from beginning to finish. Please feel free to use weights appropriate for your conditioning level. Some important training rules to remember are:
