"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
More basketball conditioning results for Irvin, Walton
Embed that shit.
My god, Irvin's waist is at the rim! And he's 9 feet tall!
the Pros from Dover...
That's great. I can barely get myself 2 inches off the ground.
I'll give you a boost. We can get to 4.5''.
I knew Louis Nix trolled Mgoblog!
Plus he's grown about five or six feet based on his size compared to the backboard.
Wheaties, man. Wheaties.
If you look carefully, the picture is taken at a funny angle. He's actually grown 7 feet taller, the backboard is much closer than it looks. Kinda like that Tyranosaurus in Jurrasic Park.
Improving a vertical that much is incredible.
I'd love to know what the exercises are that they use to improve a person's vertical by that much.
That's only like 210lb or so. I would expect better from D1 basketball players.
its probably more than that, the plates look to be a little deceiving because they are all the same width even though they arent all the same weight
I'm curious on how you figured 210 lbs.
And I think he was just kidding.
Not that it matters, because it shows him working hard and that's really all that matters, but the bar is most likely 45 lbs. 45lbs is the standard olympic lifting bar weight and the weight that is most commonly used as a squatting bar in a gym. A 10lb bar would bend with any kind of serious weight on it. So bare minimum the guy is squatting 245. Which isn't too shabby for a kid coming out of high school. Plus he has very good form and goes all the way down. I've seen multiple guys in the gym go down about 1/3rd of the way and think that is 1 rep. This kid goes all the way down which is activating his glutes, quads and hamstrings.
You're posting on a frickin blog. I mean who are you? Kevin Durant couldn't do one rep of bench press at the combine and he's pretty damn good. Dare I say, better thank you, me, and the rest of this board could EVER be.
So who the fuck are you to make such a comment? I don't care if it's 210 or 410...if he can play, he can play. The guy's lifting trying to get stronger to play for Michigan. Who gives a shit about your condescending expectations for D1 basketball players?
So great to see Austin Hatch working with the Michigan Basketball Team and already making contributions to Michigan beyond expectations.
Its a bird, its a plane
nope its Michigan Basketball
Maybe I'm just overly-optimistic today, but I'm having a hard time figuring out when Michigan football and basketball ever loses a game again. I just don't see it in the cards until at least the year 2025.
Michigan over EVERYBODY.
UMHoops ran an article this morning - centered around Zak Irvin in particular - about some of the other things coming out of Camp Sanderson as well. (LINK)
"Irvin’s offseason strength gain – he’s up 15 pounds to 215 — was obvious according to observers at the Adidas Nations camp in Garden Grove, California. Irvin reflected on his physical development after participating in a game with other college stars from across the country."
Irvin also said that he's been working more on getting to ball screens as well as his own ball handling. It also mentions that LeVert is up 15 pounds himself to 185 as well, so there is some serious gain (good gain) happening here.
Fantastic to see the freshmen in there working. Would love to see some extra weight and strength on many of them. I hope this Italy trip will really be beneficial as well. I vaguely remember the last time the team traveled to Europe, and if I recall they had issues with the shot clock, etc, but they also had substantially less talent than the new Beilein standard.
Somebody get that man a raise.
