Are sitting there watching the 2010-2011 NBA basketball season openers and wondering to yourself what it will take for you to be able to play in that professional league of ballers?
We can tell you unequivocally and without doubt that the very first step in becoming an NBA player is through nutrition and exercise. No matter how much raw talent you currently possess you must eat well and exercise correctly.
There is no other way to accomplish the goal of playing for the Boston Celtics if you fail to address and address these two factors throughout your playing career perpetually.
Mexico City Madmen
So you think you have game do you? That’s is great and we want to further the development in the sport of basketball so that you will one day hear your name being called out at the start of the 2023 Boston Celtic home opener against the Mexico City Madmen!
Of course the Mexico City team, as of the NBA 2010-2011 season, is not real there will be a rush of international teams invading the North American game of professional basketball certainly by the year 2023!
Please have a look at the below-listed nutrition recommendations for young basketball players and notice that the impudence is on muscle enrichment but not bulking–up. You need to be fast and lean for most of the position in the sport of basketball and if you happen to be a 6’5” 13 year old then this does not apply to you as you are a center all the way! Eat up Big Boy!
You normally hear so much negative press revolving around the consumption and the over-accumulation of foods that are high in carbohydrates. As a young basketball player you need to be aware that carbohydrates are a very necessary part of your daily nutritional requirements.
What carbohydrates offer is to be used as a source of pure energy. Because of this, they should be a regular part of your total diet but shouldn’t be eaten excessively. While breads are full of carbohydrates, we recommended wheat breads but not in large amounts. Everything in moderation!
There is not one basketball player out there, who wants to get stronger or healthier, who can accomplish this without the aid of protein. Foods such as turkey and specifically lean proteins like turkey or boneless skinless turkey breasts. Protein is found in so many food groups with steaks and other meats being the largest grouping of this very necessary nutrient.
Water is the main source for hydration, hands-down. It is normally found all around basketball courts from Adelaide, Australia all the way to the shores of Los Angeles, California and the O-Town Balling Basketball Club.
What we are trying to say is that even if you do not necessarily enjoy the taste of water still you need to drink it and drink plenty of it! Hydration is the key to muscle growth and if you ever find yourself sweating away on the basketball court and you start feeling dizzy or nauseous and feel parched then go to the bench or curb and sit this run out.
It could be that you are in the beginning stages of dehydration and a few sips of good old H2O and rest will have you feeling better and banging under the boards in not time flat!
