About the Video
STACK catches up with Devin Harris during his in-season body weight circuit training
. During an off day, it is important for basketball players to get into the weight room and break a sweat without overdoing it.
In order to sustain power during the entire basketball
season, Harris spends his off day performing a body weight circuit to tune up his muscles.
Harris starts with the TRX Push-Up
, where he strengthens his shoulders to help prevent any future injuries.
He then performs Decline Sit-Ups with Med Ball for an explosive core. Having a strong core is critical for any basketball player to be able to power through each quarter of the game without dragging from fatigue. Check out: Devin Harris Builds an Explosive Core
Strengthening the leg muscles with a Three-Way Med Ball Lunge is important for basketball players to prevent the all too common ankle injury. Legs strength gives you the power and force to jump high and change direction on a dime. Check out: Devin Harris Develops a Strong Defensive Stance
