No workout can begin before the players are properly stretched. We ask our players to arrive approximately one hour before our morning workout begins. They can get taped if needed, use a foam roller to work out aches and pains in the muscles, jump on a bike or treadmill to get warmed up, or work through some corrective movement exercises to ensure their limbs and joints are all working as one. Then they go through an "active stretch" on the court, similar to what every NBA team does each day. This typically lasts for 11-13 minutes.
