Have you ever heard the term ‘Gym Rat’?
It usually is reserved for the player who spends a ton of time in the gym working on their game.
Day 5 – Gym Rat
Are you a gym rat? Do you spend a lot of time working on your game?
The measure of your success in basketball is how well you use your time when in the gym. Do you just hang out with your friends and hoist up long jumpers. Do you try to dunk every time? Does your buddy throw you alley-oops? Or do you work on your dribbling. Do you take turns shooting jumper after jumper from seven different spots around the perimeter?
You want to be a great basketball player? Someone once said, “you become what you think about most of the time”. Become a gym rat…
