Even NBA Basketball players need to lose that last 20lbs.
Over the off-season NBA star Kendrick Perkins dropped 20 unwanted lbs to become even more dominant within the paint. This former Boston Celtic had a rough and tough banger-type image due to his extra heavy load. Being on a new team now “The Oklahoma City Thunder” combined with a new run and gun offense and with much younger players – meant he had to commit to moving more quickly up and down the court. His goal was to become more athletic, improve his cardio and drop an extra 20 lbs.
The secret to Kendrick’s success was proper eating and a regimented fitness program. Over the off-season he hired a Nutritionist and personal trained with his former Coach / Personal Trainer. Together they worked on following a clean-eating calorie-correct plan while improving lean muscle while gaining 1st step quickness.
Even at such an elite level, players look to educated professionals like Personal Trainers and Nutritionists to aid them in their development. In order to trim inches and drop the last couple pounds to get them to the next stage – eating right is a must coupled with a tailored fitness program for the best results possible.
