Why Resistance Training is Ruining Your Game.

By: 0

There is a common perception that resistance training is ruining your game. For example, in basketball I have heard time and again that doing resistance training ruins my shot. To an extent, I agree with this statement. Not because resistance training is bad, but that fact that the resistance training you are doing is bad.


It’s not your fault. The issue is that you have no guidance in your program so the training you are doing is building size and strength that is not specific to your sport. When you don’t see progress, or hindered performance you stop training in the gym and spending more time on the court or field working on skills for hours and hours. Unfortunately, this can lead to overuse injuries from doing too much of the same thing.
