- Warm up - Stretching - shooting hoops - running for the rebound and putting in a layup
- Cardio - How many layups can I do in 5 minutes? (26 apparently) I run full court to do each lay up and must put it in.
- Strength and conditioning - Push ups - how many can I do in 1 minute? (20 apparently - ugh) - Jumping - I touch the basketball to the rim 10 times on each side
- Cool Down - 20 post up moves, plus shooting hoops as before, then stretching.
I realize that this is probably pathetic compared to what a lot of you do but it's a start for me. A couple things I learned through this process. 1. Push ups are ridiculously hard, especially when you have put on about 35 pound since the last time you have done them. 2. I can't dunk the basketball anymore. 3. It is really hard to get the ball in the basket when you are super tired. 4. Bring a towel when you need to shower - the paper towel works but that is really wasteful! 5. You still sweat even after you have showered - allowing me to make all kinds of friends in the office.
