How to become a better athlete.

Whats up guys,

Im a 15y old 5'4'' pointguard.


I'm really explosive, i know how to lead a team, i have confidence and determination, i work but here comes the first problem... I feel like i don't train enough. How do you know you've train enough for the day...?


I'm new here on iHoops and ive read some oother threads and i saw that you guys train 2 or 3 hours a day: How does your training schedule(excersises)looks like?


I weight 132 lbs for 5'4'' and im pretty muscled. is that enough to be real physicall inside or should i be on a gain weight diet?



I am one of the best in my team, thanks to my though defence & competance. But i still wonna worl harder on my defence, is it posibble to work on it alone?


I hope you guys can help me,

    if ur 5'4" and 132lbs ur fine muscle wise. its sorta possible 2 work on defence on ur own. but only if ur just working on slides. other than tht the only real way 2 get better at d is play alot of 1on1 games.

    Keep in mind that working at a good pace with good exercises/drills with perfect form for 1-2 hours is better than shooting around and playing pick up games or doing stuff with the wrong form for 2-3 hours. You can tell if you've trained enough when you are tired or have completed your workout. Btw plan your workout ahead as it will save you time. Also as for your weight just lift or do your basic strength exercises and you should be good.
