He shoots… he scores! Basketball is a dynamic game that requires a high level of cardiovascular fitness to cope with the short, high-intensity bursts of effort required, with variable options for recovery while on the court.
While many training sessions will focus on specific skill development and technical aspects of the game, you’ll also need to spend plenty of time in the gym working on strength and conditioning.
Recovery is vital to ensure you can step up for the next game. We recommend our Protein Matrix+ protein supplement for use between training and games and after strength sessions, Electrolyte+ to replace electrolytes lost through sweat, SportsFuel 101 to assist endurance, ZMA to let your muscles relax and repair and Joint Capsules and/or Cissus Quadrangularis, to help repair joint damage caused by sudden acceleration and deceleration.
