Recovery for Basketball Players

Why Athletic Recovery is so valuable for Youth Basketball Players:

By Jason Papalio 

Any good basketball-training program should allow for Recovery, time for growth to occur between workouts. Recovery means that you learn to relax deeply and bring your whole body into equilibrium, maximizing your body’s repair. Why does this matter?

With the stress you’re putting on your body through out: games, practices, and performance training, you’ll end up degrading your performance, if you haven’t already. The main benefit of a basketball athletic recovery program is ‘Injury Prevention’. You want to address warning signs as soon as they arise and before they become problems.

Based on your specific movements as a basketball player, your body responded to those repetitive movements in particular ways. Usually that: ache, twinge, soreness and pain are your body’s internal defense mechanism. The consequences of not listening to your body can lead to the: athletic trainers table, doctors, and even a long stay off the court with an injury.

With an appropriate basketball recovery program you’ll: experience less fatigue, enjoy great levels of preparedness, and ultimately greater performance. This can all lead to happier and healthier athletes in both the short and long term.

Perform the following 3 exercises: after practice, at night before bed, after a game or on a lighter recovery day

  1. Legs Up the Wall:

Relives tired and cramped legs and provides lymph drainage in the feet and legs. An excellent stretch for the: hamstrings, front torso, and back of the neck. Allows the mind to find a calm and meditative state. Do for about 5 minutes with your eyes closed, in a rather quite location.

(Click here for Pictures)

 

  1. Child’s Pose:

Great for basketball players to stretch the: hips, thighs, ankles, and shins while reducing fatigue. Awesome pose to do before bed for a few minutes or if having trouble sleeping. This resting posture centers, calms and sooths the brain, making it a therapeutic for relieving stress.

3) Foam Roller Stretch:

You are actually fully conscious here aimed at being awake, yet completely relaxed.  Can calm the nervous system and promote equanimity in your entire body. Fatigued muscles get to relax, tense shoulders and jaws soften, and eyes quiet down to reflect a quieter state of mind. Rest here several minutes or more.
