The game of basketball is fast paced and very racy, every move at every second counts. You need a body that will sustain the high energy impact that this game requires. It’s not about being skinny or fat, it’s about gaining weight the healthy way, after all you don’t want to be pushed down or manhandled when you’re dribbling the ball or passing it on to a team mate. You need the energy, strength and most importantly the weight to sustain the pushes, nudges and the roughness of the game.
As a basketball player you need to shift your focus from a lot of fat. You don’t want to end up like a sumo wrestler running up and down the court. You need food rich in proteins and carbohydrates that will give you a lot of muscle strength as well as help you keep your energy levels up when pacing the court. Along with putting on weight you need to train with weights, this means that your final reps in your exercise routine should be difficult to complete. This training program helps even the skinniest of basketball players to put on muscle and also prevents any kind of plateau in strength training. This will make you an intimidating opponent in a high impact sporty game like basketball.
