How to alter gym workouts, if started basketball training after a year of weightlifting?
Hello guys. I’ve been involved in sports for a long time. Attending the gym, I didn’t change my workout routine for a long time. Only increase the load regularly. My coach says it is necessary to maintain the shapes and improve the results. In order to do this, I try to alter some kinds of activities.
I’ve been engaged in weightlifting for a year. Actually, I used the dumbbell exercising complex. It is useful for me, as I want to gain muscle mass. My friends say I’m too slim. I also noticed I didn’t have enough strength when I wanted to lift something heavy. So I decided to increase my endurance. And started to do dumbbells exercises in the gym.
Recently, I became interested in different sports games. As for me, it is so exciting! I started playing basketball. With time, this kind of sports became my life. But I am concerned about the following questions:
- How to combine playing basketball with my gym routine?
- Which changes should I do in my workout program?
- Should I just add some new exercises or make a totally new plan?
Please, share your experience. Looking forward to your answers. Thanks!
