The work that players put in with the strength and conditioning staff in the team’s weight room is fairly obvious, with tangible results.
But guard Zane Beadles goes beyond physical workouts during his offseason training regimen.
He enlists the help of sports psychologists to help round out his game and increase his leadership abilities.
“I try to stick to the things that have helped me be successful in the past and keep building on that stuff,” Beadles said. “I’m still working with the sports psychologist, trying to take on more of a leadership role maybe in my room. But not a lot has changed. I feel like I’m really settling in to what it means to be a pro and really how to approach an offseason and getting ready for training camp and all that stuff. It’s just being more and more comfortable every single day with that side of things.”
In addition to his work in the weight room, Beadles visits Elite Sports Services in Parker, Colo., where he works on visualization training.
