Self-quarantine is no time to slack on conditioning, say experts

USA Today


Article Summary:

The Boston Celtics aren’t playing, so it’s totally cool if they work on a beer belly while the NBA is on hold, right?

Not so fast, says former Celtics strength trainer Brian Doo.

Curious to know what a professional with years in the league would say about what – if anything – Boston’s players should be doing in terms of strength and conditioning in this unexpected, coronavirus-caused hiatus, the Athletic’s Jay King and Jared Weiss got in touch with Doo on the matter.

For the unfamiliar, Doo was the Celtics strength coach for the Celtics for 14 years, and knows a thing or two about how athletes need to prepare for professional basketball regardless of whether there’s actual games being played or not.

“I’ve talked to a bunch of NBA guys. They’re like, ‘Oh, we’re done, the season’s over, we’re just going to chill out,'” said Doo.
