Devin Harris Workout
Devin Harris does an in-season circuit workout. Circuit training consists of performing multiple exercises on multiple body parts in a row with little rest in between. Circuits are a great way to build up muscle, while simultaneously providing some cardiovascular training. As an NBA basketball player, you certainly need both.
Harris doesn't do a lot of heavy lifting during the season. The heavier you train, the higher the chances of injury. Therefore, the NBA Point Guard for the Atlanta Hawks really focuses on keeping the weight light but really working on his form and explosion. Doing light weight may not necessarily build up the size and strength the quickest, but it certainly is good way to maintain it. It also really helps increase core strength, improves coordination and strengthens ligaments and joints.
Harris does this TRX Inverted Row to build up some strength in his injury-prone shoulder.
As you can see, this exercise places a big emphasis on shoulder stabilization.
Here's some of the workouts Harris does:
TRX Push-Up: A basic push-up primarily hits the chest and shoulders. When doing a push-up on the TRX, you are focusing more on shoulder stabilization and core strength. Harris has had shoulder injuries before so this can build up some strength in his shoulders.
TRX Inverted Row: A basic inverted row mainly targets the back and shoulder muscles. When adding a TRX device to it, you are putting even more emphasis on the back and shoulder muscles to keep you steady while executing the exercise. This is another good way to keep Harris' shoulders strong.
Three-Way Med Ball Lunge: Instead of a normal lunge in which you only go forwards, you are going in multiple angles, going forwards, sideways, and backwards. Since you are stretching and strengthening your legs in multiple angles, you can prevent injury when moving in awkward directions on the basketball court (slipping, sliding, etc.).
Decline Sit-Up with Med Ball Throw: You get the benefits of a sit-up but with even more resistance placed on the core since a weighted ball is being thrown at you. This can also place some extra emphasis on the obliques. This can translate to having a stronger pass with the basketball.
