In the summer, Kobe Bryant changed his training program to make it stronger – like Michael Jordan in the days. Kobe won 6-7 pounds of muscle (currently 220 lbs.), Slower, but managed to maintain it if he did not increase his vertical jump. So how did he do it?
Let's look at the weight training program – 6 days a week, 1 hour workout a day. The full program includes weight training and 2 hours running, 2 hour basketball and 1 hour cardio daily!
first Day and Day 4:
2. day and day 5:
As you can see in Figures 1, 2, Day 5 and 5, the strength of the building is at the top of the body. Day 3 and 6 are all about the lower part of the body that creates the power you need to jump to the real high.
Reduction of body fat percentage (below 10%) allowed Kobe to save the weight he actually gained by building muscle. Training (running, cardio) that adheres to a good diet (eg Avoiding fat during meals requires enough protein to eat red meats a week, plenty of water to drink.) It's important.
Now, last summer (2007), before I started playing for Team USA, I lost almost 20 lbs. (currently 205 lbs) to bring its speed back to its vertical part.
