    Sup peeps,

    I read on an NBA Blog that Gilbert Arenas cut down his body fat from 11% to 4% over the off-season, and he did it thru nutritional means (obviously).
    I've been searchin for some nba players nutrition schedules but i cant find jack..
    Anyone know where i can get this info??

    most of them eat like total shit, hours of full cort basketball every day keeps them lean, that's some major HIIT cardio there.

    are you sure he cut bodyfat during off season? Tons of those guys have trouble keeping weight on. They are forced to eat so much (KG, Yao)

    Yeah this is from his blog..

    "I’m at four percent body fat now. I was at 11 percent body fat when I got hurt. So I’m down to four percent and it’s all muscle, cut up, you know, looking diesel. " http://www.nba.com/blog/gilbert_arenas.html

    KG and Yao are ectomorhps, so its tough for them.. whereas point guards are more mesomorphic.. And im fuckin inbetween meso and endo, so i gotta cut like a motherfucker

    Ben Wallace as well. In response to the OP, Gilbert has been known to exaggerate things once in a while.

    Kobe gained 20lbs over a summer. I think it was the 2003 season (if not then 2004). It was pretty amazing to see his pics at the end of 02 vs the start of 03.

    Gilbert is kinda :nuts:.

    And this year he dropped 20lbs. Saw him at the Team USA scrimmage @ UNLV last month, looked super lean.

    we've been through this before I believe. There are two categories of BF IIRC, overall and something else which is a component of overall BF, which I can't remember, (adipose?, intramuscular?). He's cut as hell, but no way he's down to 4% BF overall. 4% of the component of overall is believable
