If you are a basketball player, coach, parent or involved in the game in any way, this is one interview you must sit down and read.
NRS got the chance to talk with Alan Stein, an internationally renowned basketball specific strength and conditioning coach, who has worked with some of the top players across the globe including Oklahoma Thunder star Kevin Durant.
Stein is one of the best strength and conditioning coach in the world and constantly works high-profile events such as the McDonald’s All-American game and is a consultant for Nike. He also works throughout the summer at events including the Nike Skills Academies and the Chris Paul CP3 Elite Guard Camp where he helps elite high school and college basketball players perform at a higher level.
Stein talked to us about his role at nationally renowned high school basketball programs such as DeMatha Catholic High School (MD) and Montrose Christian High School (MD) and how he trains players to reach their peak performance. Stein helps players and coaches in a variety of ways from motivational speaking to individualized and team workouts to clinics and camps.
He also created his own company, Stronger Team, where he provides services and resources to help players improve their game. If you visit his website here, you will also find a link to his blog where he discusses hot-topic issues and addresses facts and fallacies in the world of strength and conditioning.
