Huskies Back in the Weight Room
Sure, last night's banquet for the women's basketball team was fun for everyone involved, but not so much when the student-athletes had a 6 a.m. wake-up call the next morning.
The Huskies had an appointment with strength coach Matt Ludwig at the sport performance center on-campus, and the early reaction was that the session was, well, not pleasant. Coach Lud ran the team through a circuit of dumbell bench presses, squats, core work, a farmer's walk and then put the team in a competition with the cardio machines.
"I'm so tired right now," said forward Mackenzie Argens when asked about the workout.
The goal for the program is to re-introduce the student-athletes to weight training before the heavy lifting occurs during the summer. Starting next week, the team will begin individual drills with the coaches to work on fundamentals, shooting, etc.
