|Not a Nike ad...should be though!|
Now that the season is over, it's time to get better for next year. First up? Recovery. I usually take 10-14 days off before I start lifting; all of the jumping and landing I do over the summer really stresses my body. The good news is, I feel pretty good right now. I might just make it a week before I start lifting again, because I really really really miss it.
After 3 months of playing ball, I'm pretty lean, but have def lost quite a bit of muscle mass. I know my strength levels have gone way down, and I know I've got a lot of work to do before next summer comes back around. Goals include a 405 deadlift and the ability to dunk (either a basketball or a volleyball). Lets get it!!
What are your goals? Start now; if anything is going to stop you, don't let it be the start!
Go lift something heavy!!
