My New iHoops Basketball Article…

October 20, 2011 by danny · Leave a Comment 

Yes, the articles that I am about to go over were written for a basketball website.  BUT, the information can be beneficial for anyone that is a) new to training, or b) exiting the “newbie” stage of training and transitioning to the “intermediate” stage.

Body weight training

My article, “Basketball Strength Training for Newbies” was published over a year ago.  After iHoops published it, I received a bunch of e-mails and comments on  the iHoops ’site from youngsters that went something like this; “the information in this article is great, but I need more.  I’m new to lifting but want results FAST!  What else do you have for me?”  While I appreciate the enthusiasm, it is not smart to “skip steps.”  Body weight exercises are all that most newbies need.  But in time (if they are consistent), they need to start adding significant load (weight) to their lifts in order to get optimal results.

So, I decided to give these youngsters some more advanced exercises with some programming notes to go along with it.  I just hope they spent some time working on building that “foundation” with the information I provided in “Basketball Strength Training for Newbies.”

Entering the intermediate stage

Ok, onto the new article that is now up on the iHoops website… “5 Intermediate Strength-Training Lifts for Basketball Players.”  Again, if you’ve been working at the newbie level for awhile and you’re starting to transition into the intermediate stage, I think you’ll find this article useful (even if you are not a basketball player).
