Get Fit With The Pros: Foam Rolling, Squats and Stir the Pot
Eric Foran, Director of Strength and Conditioning, takes you through player exercises
Using a foam roller is like a self massage to loosen up tight and overactive muscles. Commonly tight areas are hamstrings, quads, IT Band, calves, and low back.
Squats are one of the best exercises a basketball player can do. Squatting with great technique will develop lower body strength and help improve running and jumping power as well as reduce the risk of injury on the court.
Stir the Pot
Stir the Pot is a great exercise once you are proficient at planks. The movement and unstable surface take planks to the next level and get the abdominal and core musculature working.
