I’m (Gordon Hayward) really happy with where I am as far as training for the upcoming season goes. I put forth a conscious effort this summer to bulk up a bit. It’s not like I’m trying to get huge. I still want to be a basketball player.
When I set out to do this, I wanted to gain weight, but I also wanted to ensure I had the same speed. In basketball, it’s one thing to be strong, but it’s an even better thing to be fast. I’ve had a lot of help managing that balance thanks to the guys over at St. Vincent’s Sports Performance, where I’ve basically been lifting five days a week. I’ve trained with them since I got drafted and they do a great job of not only getting me bigger and stronger, but making me a better basketball player.
Everything there is focused on being better on the court, and not just being a power weightlifter. They obviously have me do a lot of strengthening because I’ve gotten a lot stronger, but we also do a lot of mobility, flexibility and stability work.
