This is a great book. It is well written, in very simple, plain language, and if you put in the time on the programme, it will definitely improve your basketball game.
It's divided into a number of parts. It sets out the theory behind how and why the training programme works. It then goes on to show you how do a self assessment. And then based on the results of that assessment, it allows you to create a tailored and structured stretching and exercise programme that will improve your physical ability to play basketball. There's no short cuts with this programme, but you will see and feel results within a month or so.
Having said that the book is well written, the self-assessment can be tricky enough. This is no fault of the author. In fairness, the assessment is a very simple thing to do, but because you can be looking for some subtle body movements, they might really need the trained eye of a physiotherapist or osteopath. If you are just an amateur but are serious about trying to genuinely improve, then I reckon that an assessment session with a physio is probably money well spent. Just read the book before hand and explain to them what you want them to do when you make the appointment.
5 stars for the sheer quality of the programme, (identifying your own physical imbalances & weaknesses, rectifying them, stretching, core stabilty, strength and power training and all specific to basketball) but I'd have to deduct a star for the self-assessment. It's a great book for anyone with an interest in physical training.
Next day delivery...arrived...sorted...no fuss....BRILLIANT....Thank you..........its the only way to shop these days...though I would prefer that the advertising of it shows us the inside...to see what different...if they are or not...the pictures are..
interesting collection of basketball drills. Some of them are very basic but there are plenty of interesting ones. Depending on your coaching experience, you will definitely find 10 or 20+ drills and add them in your repertoire.
