Men's Basketball 9/28-10/2 (3 hr)
This was the first week in a long time that I was able to go to all three workouts. On Monday, we were in the weight room. The players always start out with stretches on the court and then they go into the weight room for the circuit. Monday I was at the bench press station. They were to go down at a forty five degree angle (the humerus with the body) and go down right to ninety degrees. Most of the players did it with ease and the few who struggled seemed to work really hard. On Wednesday we did the ropes. I feel like the players are getting better at their form while doing the ropes. It doesn't seem to be getting easier for them though. It's so crazy how by just watching them do ropes you can tell the players who give it their all and the ones who just squeak by. On Friday we were back in the weight room. I was stationed at the one leg box jumps. This station makes me really nervous because people tend to fall. It works on their power as they explode upward on one leg.
