Default Overcoming fatigue

So last day of tryouts is tomorrow and coach has cut it down to twenty people. Today a former player came and shared some knowledge with us and he told us to go hard at everything especially in the scrimmage. So I took his advice and I went hard and really started doing good. But then I started to become tired and we had to play full court man to man defense. How do you play through fatigue?

That's exactly it... you fight through it and do the best you can. Just show them that even though you are tired, you are going to give it your best effort until you pass out on the floor. Conditioning can always be worked on, hustle and heart are much harder to teach.

just feels like im bout to pass out. But i know if I was listening to music while tired and playing i will not feel tired but energized. And also I have to learn how to play freely like I used to when I was younger because I feel im putting limitations on my game. Tomorrow is the final day and I really want to play my very hardest and play my best.

Can you die from trying to play through fatigue? Some boy in my school died during a basketball workout because I think he pushed himself too hard.

I don't think he died because of that, most of the times sport guys die on the court because of specific diseases on heart.
Don't worry about that, just push it to the limit .. you'll see that your pain will get you a "victory".

Most of my coachs told me this "work hard on defense, never stop then when your team have the ball position you rest on offense".

The more often you take that pain and fight through it, the easier it gets. Keep with it and eventually you'll be as fit as any of those other guys on the court.

It's surely easier said than done, to push past what you believe to be your limits. The way I look at it, it's the only effective means of improving one's stamina.

For instance, if a person can only run for 10 seconds before their mind tells them they're very tired and they henceforth stop, they'll forever only be running for 10 seconds. To improve one's stamina, this person would have to run until that 10 second mark, where their mind says they're tired, then push past that point. Soon, this person will be able to run for 12 seconds before feeling that familiar tired feeling, then 14, 18, etc.

All that said, I know your pain, guy. It seems no matter how hard I push in the offseason, I'm always somehow pushing harder in tryouts, which leads to heavy fatigue. It's a funny balance. After I made the team though, I saw an almost immediate difference between running through sprint drills just to finish before time runs out, and finishing as fast and hard as possible. You'll thank yourself come game situations.

You might already do this, but it was suggested to me that I should breathe through my nose as much as possible. It really helps and has cut down on my fatigue a lot. It also seems to keep me more calm, which could be an effect of less fatigue and more energy overall.

it was great especially since today I had my best games. Even though I was tired I fought through it and played well. I created my own shots as well as set up my team. I rebounded the ball well, played great defense, got a few steals and made some nice passes. I had a few turnovers but they weren't lazy stupid turnovers. Well 2mm is the first practice its going to be tuff with alot of running but Im ready to kill this yr

So you made the team? If so, congratulations.

Just remember to film every one of your games. It'll be useful for you to watch your performance from a 3rd person point of view and also you can make a highlight reel for college coaches.

Yea feels good because I know I earned the spot in tryouts not just based on what I did in the offseason. Yea I gotta find someone to help video tape my games and also I gotta achieve the goals that I set for this season.
