"Alan Stein, in my opinion, is the premier basketball strength & conditioning coach in the world. His conditioning and strength training programs are specific for basketball, not just any sport. In addition to his programs, videos, DVDs, he does numerous clinics, while being the Head Strength & Conditioning Coach for DeMatha Catholic High School, always a USA national powerhouse team and program.
Alan has a number of excellent youtube video clips that, with his permission, I have categorized for you here, and are presented on the linked pages below. I have also included links to his excellent DVDs below.
All basketball coaches need to implement a strength and conditioning program. Many of us older coaches can remember pre-season running, sprinting, calisthenics and the like, but that was it... really nothing during the season, and nothing was really specific for basketball. Coach Stein's programs and videos are just what you need, to bring you up to speed.
Keep in mind that these pages show only a small sampling of video clips. For the whole picture, get the DVDs or get in touch with Alan and attend one of his excellent clinics. And rather than me commenting on the drills, let me just say that they are all excellent, and I'll let you just watch Alan's video clips for yourself. He'll explain and demonstrate everything far better than I could"... Coach Gels.
