Basketball Physical Preparation

In basketball too, physical preparation plays a major role . Professor in exercise physiology at the Haute École Condorcet and doctoral student at the University in sports psychology in Mons (Belgium), Frédéric Renotte presents the particularities of this sport and its specific needs in terms of physical preparation.

The specificities of the physical preparation of basketball players

With its limit of 24 seconds per placed attack which requires you to walk the court from one racket to the other at a sustained pace, basketball leaves no room for downtime . It is therefore impossible, for the 10 players present on the field, to to hide . This is of course a major parameter to take into consideration when setting up physical preparation.

“Like in ice hockey, the players are so in the red all the time that this requires numerous and rapid changes, explains Frédéric Renotte. In basketball, players only have 24 seconds to try their luck at the basket, otherwise they lose possession of the ball. It is therefore not It is not possible to voluntarily waste time , to “freeze” the ball in a way to give yourself some respite and catch your breath. This aspect of basketball explains that the in-depth work is particularly important .”

Basketball: working on the background to gain lucidity

In addition to the purely athletic dimension, there is that of precision in shooting. Necessarily, without background, there may be a loss of lucidity which can lead to a lack of precision on passes in offensive reconversion but also in shooting, during free throws. To maintain this lucidity and concentration, there will be no better than Stimium Bacopa to help these athletes with this marathon challenge. Our unique Bacopa has extremely interesting properties by acting on strengthening concentration, helping to manage stress, increasing motivation to intensify efforts and increasing the speed of information processing.

“This fundamental work is indeed essential but we must also target the intervals to effectively carry out the attacks and counter-attacks which follow one another at a frantic pace, continues Frédéric Renotte . This speed is also important in layups. Then, there is also the power aspect that should not be neglected: on the other hand, unlike rugby or football, for example, this power is not horizontal but above all vertical . More than in all other team sports, it is necessary to implement exercises intended to improve the quality of vertical jumps to dominate duels in the midfield as well as in each racket, during rebounds. »

Another aspect that should not be overlooked in basketball is the disproportionate size of the majority of players, apart from the distributors. With their large frame which regularly reaches more than two meters, you have to find the solution to work a certain speed while not neglecting their power, quite comparable to that of pillars in rugby. There is therefore muscle strengthening to be planned at all times but also at intervals, even for the greatest players. Whey Stimium® [C] Whey , Stimium® Iso Hwy or Stimium® VegPro are products regularly consumed by Pro A and Pro B clubs to maintain a good protein intake sustainably during the training phase.

We must also try to prevent joint injuries to the knees or ankles as much as possible with proprioception (which undergo a lot of pressure), as well as work on mobility and changes of direction in confined spaces. We have more and more clubs men and women who order Stimium® Joint Flex from us, used as a treatment by players to try to relieve recurring joint problems in athletes who are so tall and overworked, and to prevent any joint or cartilage problems. whether training periods or competition periods, since it is very common to have 2 matches per week.

During long training periods as well as before matches, we recommend taking Stimium® Pro-Nrj Caps 30 minutes before , for extra energy and vitality.

During matches, particularly during the four quarters, many Pro A, Pro B and LNB clubs alternately take our Stimium® Boost and Stimium® Pro-Nrj Erasers for the immediate energy they provide and the ease of use. consumption.

In preparation, more and more basketball nutritionists are working with Stimium® PreWorkOut Max to improve resistance to exercise. We also have more and more requests for Pwr Creatine Tabs , for the muscle strengthening and improved recovery part. The use of creatine by professional basketball clubs no longer has the sulphurous side that it might have had in the 90s.

During long training periods as well as before matches, we recommend taking Stimium® Pro-Nrj Caps 30 minutes before , for extra energy and vitality.

During matches, particularly during the four quarters, many Pro A, Pro B and LNB clubs alternately take our Stimium® Boost and Stimium® Pro-Nrj Erasers for the immediate energy they provide and the ease of use. consumption. Several clubs also prepare bottles of Stimium Boost Powder to replenish players with vitamins and minerals, particularly in the 2nd quarter.

After matches, as well as during the recovery period, Stimium® Mc3 or Stimium® Mc3 powder are widely used by basketball players and recommended by club doctors and nutritionists to reduce the risk of cramps, and to combat muscle fatigue. , linked to the match, but also to the stress of the competition, travel, etc.

Stimium® Rgn3 Reload or Stimium® Rgn3 Clean-Up to restock with vitamins and minerals after exercise are in high demand by clubs, particularly for recovery which often starts on buses, trains or planes that take them home after workouts. travel. The competitions are just a series of key moments, and there is generally a fairly recurring ritual for all the clubs with which Stimium collaborates. After the match, a stick of MC3 , then an ice bath (again often...in trash cans transformed into ice trays, for 3 to 5 minutes), then massage if timing allows, then return by transport with recovery with RGN3 Reload . Finally, some basketball clubs have opted for our Mix Stimium® Iso Carb , initially developed for a top European football club but which also lends itself very well to basketball, to replenish these sources of glycogen and proteins.

In France, we are among the best trainers in Europe for basketball. Perhaps because of the intrinsic physical qualities of our players, because we do not yet have, for example, the technique and mentality of the countries of the former Yugoslavia (Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, etc.), but what is certain is that is that Stimium's contacts within professional basketball clubs, mainly doctors and nutritionists, have perfectly understood the benefit of intelligent supplementation to improve the performance of players and to optimize their recovery. We are proud at Stimium to be able to help them every day, and we continue to carefully monitor the performance of the clubs we supply.
