|I am sure you all saw Zion Williamson’s sneaker blowout 2 weeks ago when Duke was playing UNC|
You can see the sneaker blow out HERE
Am curious, what was your reaction?
I was surprised that his sneaker blew up as he was coming across the lane
The amount of force that he was pushing into the court was insane
So it got me thinking 🙂
Why are parents, coaches afraid to have their athletes strength train? I always hear they’re afraid they could get hurt, stunt their growth, get bigger, blah, blah, blah
We know stunting their growth is a myth
Girls don’t have the hormones to get bigger
As for the strength training part… to play the game of basketball, you need to plant, pivot, land on 1 leg, jump takes tremendous force and power
But you are worried about a body-weight squat? Teaching a hip hinge with a PVC pipe?
It just doesn’t make sense!
Here’s a question?
Did your athlete ever do gymnastics, because they amount of force it takes to do a flip is 20X more aggressive than any other move they’re going to do
I would love to know your thoughts
And as always, if you need help planning your strength training plan, let me know
