University of Virgina Head Coach Tony Bennett hired a new strength and conditioning coach. Apparently former Head Coach Dave Leitao wanted a strength program where players got bigger. Bennett has different goals:
“The philosophy is – become a basketball player,” Bennett said. “Become as strong and as athletic, with functional strength, that you can – with quick agility stuff, explosiveness, getting strong in the core, the hips Ã¢â‚¬â€ all those things.
“But everybody’s different. Some guys need to add bulk and mass, while other guys don’t need that. They need to trim down and become as quick as they canÃ¢â‚¬Â¦getting to your optimal athleticism is what it’s all about.”
