Quote:
“We told every player that they must improve and we want them to be in the best physical shape of their lives. We don’t want anybody over seven or eight percent body fat anymore, and basically all but one or two players were in double-figures in body fat (last season),” Johnson said. “We can’t have that. We told them that this is all about excellence now. So you’ve got to be disciplined and put the work in.”

I guess this is what 7-8% body fat looks like.

It's more about the idea than the numbers.

He's going with the ideology that you've got to put in work now. If you dont put in work anymore, you can find another city to play ball in.

I like the idea.

I swear there was a thread that listed everyone's body fat % along with # of workouts they completed or something.

how many teams have had a roster full of Thomas Robinsons? And did they win more than 12 games lol.

Now the part about putting the work in, being disciplined and all about excellence I 100% agree. However that's part of being a professional nba player and being the best you can be everyday on the court. This is not a muscle competition

Magic probably has no accurate idea what 8-9% bodyfat truly is...does he really think Jordan Clarkson has 20% too much bodyfat?

Just another way of saying get in better shape. One could make excuses as a player or he could work on stamina and come into camp ready to play 48 minutes if needed. No reason for guys in their early 20's to be talking about " hey coach, I'm too tired to play defense".

Here's the list

Body Fat % List from highest to lowest

LINK

This should've been from right after the Lou Will trade (since he's not on there but Calderon still is)

Body Composition Tracker: lbs, BF%

Zubac: 263.8, 18.4%
World Peace: 254.5, 14.9%
Deng: 228, 14.9%
Young: 214.4, 13.6%
Mosgov: 258.4, 13.4%
Black: 257.4, 13.1%
Russell: 197.9, 12.4%
Randle: 256.3, 12%
Clarkson: 196.1, 11.8%
Nance: 235.7, 10.7%
Ingram: 189.9, 9.2%
Calderon: 191.9, 8.9%
Robinson: 250, 5.3%


Total Workout Sessions (since start of season?)

Zubac: 460
Ingram: 434
Robinson: 385
Russell: 342
Mosgov: 319
Randle: 318
Black: 312
World Peace: 308
Nance: 307
Clarkson: 254
Young: 144
Deng: 116
Ennis: 22
Nwaba: 12
Brewer: 4


Zubac was our hardest worker but had the highest bodyfat mainly due to growing into his body which is to be expected.

Only 3 players were in the single digits of bodyfat last season.

Kid's it's understandable why their body fat would be high, veterans unless they're 'done' don't have any excuses.

Guys like Brewer should have no excuses for their body fat being that high. And I think what should factor into not just their diets but their workouts and how many sessions they are doing. Such as if you're in the top 3 of workout sessions, your body fat WILL drop as your body evolves. That's to be expected.

I'd rather have 10% body fat players who work on their game instead of drinking gallon sized water jugs, riding stationary bikes just to make "weight."

Yeah, everyone will come back looking like stick figures. You can't add muscle that fast to fill out. Julius would have to come back weighing like 235 and BI would have to be in the 180's.

Seems dumb to set some arbitrary body fat % number. Would've been easier to say everyone has to be able to run 10 miles in x time or something if you're goal is for everyone to be in shape.

Just when I though I was wrong about Magic being a moron...

What that have to do with anything at all? Did you think our problems last year where because of poor conditioning?

Was it to imply players didn't work hard? Because by absolutely all accounts before the season they were having "breakfast clubs" for workouts and whatnot.

I feel dejected. The future of my team is in the hands of idiots.

Wonder what else Magic has no accurate idea about that he needs to know in order to do his job.

I do not mind the %# as a goal or even required, but it should be on an individual basis....I mean so much of that is genetics....TRob is 5.3% BF.....I bet no other player on the team no matter how hard they worked could get close to that %. 5.3% is near bodybuilding stage ready....and those guys take a lot of drugs to get down to that.....damn TRob hit the genetic lottery

Here is the thing, a low bodyfat doesn't mean stick figure

http://i46.tinypic.com/243kdg9.jpg

But there needs to be fat first and it would come from building up.

I think grassfed has them all on the right path tbh. I doubt Magic understands how rare havign every player under 10% bodyfat would be and how draining it could also be to force this on them THIS early as their bodies are still filling out.

A lot of it is actually genetics too. I don't want players near killing themselves in the off-season and having no legs throughout the season cause they forced themselves to make weight or bodyfat. Has Magic never seen what that does to boxers? Seriously, the guy is a moron or he's just speaking "buzz words" to sound good.

Making that a goal would be TORTURE on a 19-22 year olds body that is still growing.

same page as being "broken hearted" if we have no all star next season and we are going to field the recent Joe Weider Mr. Olympia contestants as a roster?
