What topics are you interested in
Hello. With so many topics of interest in basketball, are there any in particular that you would you like to see covered in the NSCA Basketball SIG forum?

I'm not sure how to formulate this question but Is there and ideal strength ratio for basketball players in general? We think of basketball players in terms of physical appearance- tall with broad shoulders and the ability to jump high, but is there an underlying biomechanical ideal such as a core strength to peripheral strength ratio? I guess another way to phrase this question is: what does the ideal basketball player look like from a biomechanical standpoint?

I would say an overhead pully pulldown for the post player; and a med. ball slam for the point guard. The med ball slam for passing strength. You can add pertubation as the athlete progresses to make it more functional.
I also like the seated row with a wide grip (hands in line with the elbows). This is the same position that any basketball player will be in as they "box out."
