Default Re: Preparation for High School Ball

Woot Woot! Hey you did respond!

Hats off to you for banging with the big boys, Chuck Hayes must have been an inspiration for you. So I'm going to take your advice and write down all my daily activities. I could do it digitally but I'd rather keep a physical journal.

Regarding protein intake: What would be a good source of 40-50 grams of protein? Is protein from say, chocolate milk the same as protein from lean chicken breast? Also I've replaced the white bread pb&jelly sandwiches with a brand of whole wheat called Honeywheat. How big of a difference do you think this switch will make?

Also my rebounding could use some work, any tips on:

1. Timing
2. Grabbing the ball with 2 hands( not playing volleyball with it)
3. Securing the rebound after snatching it( sometimes I don't protect the ball very well and it gets slapped at or poked loose by a sneaky defender)
4. Fighting through a huge player's boxout
5. Boxing out huge players( I know the saying is low man always wins but are there any other tips regarding this?)
