Every week I answer a question or questions that are sent in to me regarding fat burning, weight loss, diet, fitness and or the Fat X program. Today's question e-mailed in and it was regarding using the Fat X workout program and practicing for basketball.
I started your workout program in late August to lose some weight, get in shape and get ready for basketball season. I've definitely noticed a big difference in my body and also my fitness level. My concern is continuing the program when the basketball season begins. We practice Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and our games will be Tuesdays and either Friday or Saturdays. Thanks for putting together the Fat X workouts, the videos, and the workout guide. Any input on adjusting the program for my basketball season would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.
First of all let me congratulate you on actually getting in shape before the season. I know a few coaches in different sports and one of their biggest pet peeves is when players come in out of shape. Now the main objective during the season should be to stay in shape and to concentrate more on increasing skill level at your sport, basketball in this case. The best thing for you to do is to spread out the Fat X workout program and think of it as a maintenance phase. That way you get in enough rest and it won't affect your skill practice. Try scheduling the FX workouts on Sunday, Wednesday, and early Thursdays. This will insure that you are fresh on game days. Also, take a look at your FX workout guide and focus on maintaining your numbers more than increasing them as I usually recommend. Again, this is meant more as fitness maintenance so that you body will not be tired for skill practice. Good luck on your season.
