Strength Training for Basketball "Chalk Talk" Discussion
by NSCA and Human Kinetics

  • Andrew Barr, DPT, CSCS
  • Alexander Reeser, MS, CSCS, TSAC-F
  • Bryan D. Doo, MS, CSCS, RSCC
  • Joshua Bonhotal, MS, CSCS

 Summary:

Why is strength training important for the basketball athlete? In a dynamic game that changes by the instant, athletes need to be conditioned to sustain the highly stressful workloads experienced during practice or a game. For the basketball athlete, that means strength cannot be defined only as a measure of how much weight the person can lift; rather, it is an ability that should be judged by whether it can successfully be applied on the court. This session will cover topics such as basketball-specific resistance training program guidelines; unique physical demands of the three primary position groups; strength, reactive strength, power, speed, agility, endurance, and anaerobic capacity testing protocols; total body, lower body, upper body, and anatomical core exercise technique; and programming for off-season, preseason, in-season, and postseason resistance training.

Multilateral Development and Specialized Training
by Nicole Rodriguez, BS, LMT
  • In a sport like football (soccer), training is practice and practice is training. From developing athletes to professional athletes, physical development time and buy-in is the limiting factor.

Our goal in this presentation is to identify the starting point to introducing a physical development model for young football players through the foundational, developmental and performance phases.
  • We will learn how to manage time poor environments, manage player engagement and manage player orientation. For our performance stage, leading into a professional career, we will identify the physical demands professional players undergo so we can explore how to best develop our players for the future.

The Importance of Lower-Body Frontal Plane Strength and Mobility for Athletic Success
by Joshua Secomb

Strength and conditioning programs typically focus on the sagittal plane movements for the lower-body (squat, deadlift, vertical jump, etc.). However, most sports require highly developed force producing capabilities in the frontal plane as well. Such examples include; change of direction in football, body checking in hockey, and pitching and hitting in baseball and softball. This presentation will provide research and anecdotal evidence as to how the prescription of frontal plane strengthening exercises can enhance athletic success and reduce the opportunity of injury. Furthermore, the combination of strength and mobility is essential to enhance these outcomes. Therefore, numerous case studies will be provided from a range of sports (ice hockey, surfing, softball), as well as a broad range of practical examples of strengthening and mobility exercises that can be prescribed for these qualities.
