Training vs Working Out

Basketball season is over and now players are focusing their attention to AAU/travel basketball and skill development. There will be a number of camps and skill development opportunities for all players of all different skill levels. Some will be able to afford to hire a skill development trainer while others will use YouTube and other sites to gather information on drills and workouts.

I know there will be a lot of parents and former players conducting skill development workout or training sessions (there is a difference) over the next few months. To the average parent and even some former players, they may not know the difference between a skills training session and a skills training workout. So below I have an infographic to explain the difference. 

Checkout the audio from a podcast interview I did 2 years ago on Whistle and A Clipboard when I gave my thoughts on training vs working out.
