DeJuan Blair, Spurs in great shapePosted by Inside Hoops
Mike Monroe of the San Antonio Express-News reports:
The dramatic reduction in DeJuan Blair’s body fat — the Spurs’ big man went from 14 percent to 8 percent over the summer — has made him Exhibit A in strength and conditioning coach Mike Brungardt’s “thin is in” summer workout program.
Blair, though, is but one of the summer-success stories for Brungardt and assistant strength coach Chris White.
Brungardt declared the Spurs, as a team, reported to training camp in better shape than at any time in the past seven seasons. His annual body-fat measurement revealed lower percentages for most players, with Blair making the most dramatic drop.
Brungardt and White continue to put the Spurs through a daily regimen of conditioning drills that look like a cross between schoolyard recess and NFL draft combine workouts.
