Diary Of A Baller: Ben Roy (Spring Lake Heights, NJ) Entry #4

 
Ben Roy Getting Busy

What’s up Basketball Spotlight World? Welcome to Journal Entry #4 for Ben Roy. 

Monday: Monday I woke up still injured from playing over the weekend. After I realized I was not feeling great, I decided to take a little mental and physical break from working out for a couple days. I wanted to get back to feeling 100%, so this would be the best idea. I went to school that morning so sore and run down, but I started to feel better as the day went on. After school I went to the Atlantic Club with one of my friends, we just messed around a little bit. We shot for about 2 hours but didn’t go hard, so my back felt fine when we were done. I came home that night and stretched for a while, and it really made my back feel better.

Diary Of A Baller: Ben Roy (Spring Lake Heights, NJ) Entry #3


What’s up Basketball Spotlight World? 

Welcome to Journal Entry #3 for Ben Roy. 

Monday: Waking up Monday morning wasn’t bad at all. Since I didn’t play the weekend before, I had all the energy in the world when I rolled out of bed. I went to school that morning knowing the week was going to be laid back since we had PARCC testing this week. After school, I decided to go up to the park and get some shots up, and luckily for me, there was pretty good pickup games going on. I got loose and the guys asked me to hop in, so I ended up playing pickup for a couple hours. It was good to play against older and stronger guys and I could really try some new moves and finishes which was nice too.

Diary Of A Baller: Ben Roy (Spring Lake Heights, NJ) Entry #2



What’s up Basketball Spotlight World? 

Welcome to journal entry #2 for Ben Roy. 

Monday: I woke up Monday morning extremely tired and in a ton of pain. Earlier the past weekend, I really hurt my back and it was still affecting me when I woke up. I went to school that morning and the whole day went pretty smoothly. Since the lower grades still had standardized testing, my teachers didn’t feel the need to give us any homework, which I was psyched about. I was expecting to workout on Monday night, but due to my back, I was physically unable to. So, after school I lightly got some shots up and heated my back and stretched the rest of the day. Before I went to bed, I lifted for about 30 minutes and was really working on perfecting my form with lifting. I did some chest, shoulder and bicep work. I am really working on getting stronger heading into high school next year.
