Diary Of A Female Baller: Jordan Nixon (Harlem, NY) Entry #5

Jordan Nixon

Hello basketball World;

Since we last spoke, not much has changed, but several exciting events occurred this week; I'm really excited to share them with you. 
Monday: Over the weekend, we had a total of three scrimmages. As a result, a clear picture of issues that we should address developed in our minds. Monday was a little more intense than some of our previous ones. Conditioning and constant energy  as well as defense were all topics of focus. We made it through; it was tough, but we made it. During a tough practice, I constantly remind myself how important it is to push when you don't want to do so. I also remind myself that in order to be successful, you have to pay the price of discomfort.

Hello Basketball World;

Monday, Nov 14th: It was regular a regular day at school. I had freshman lunch, so only some of my close friends had lunch with me, it was fun and full of laughs. At the end of the day we had a rough practice, transition work, and conditioning, boxing out, and a lot of running in various forms. Went home did HW and worked on my core for about 30 mins before bed.

Diary Of A Female Baller: Jordan Nixon (Harlem, NY) Entry #3

Jordan Nixon & Friends

Hey Basketball World, glad to have you back for week 3! I'm having a lot of fun sharing my whereabouts with you and giving you a little bit of insight into my life, the life of a female baller. 

Sunday; I slept a lil late since its the weekend and since preseason is officially over, it's all about maintaining strength and growing as a player and person for the duration of the season. Today I decided to do core and calve work; I didn't want to do anything too strenuous because Monday marked our first practice.

Diary Of A Female Baller: Jordan Nixon (Harlem, NY) Entry #2


What's Up Basketball World,

This is Jordan Nixon signing back In for my 2nd week of a "Diary Of A Female Baller"

On Monday; Since I'm attending a Catholic School (The Mary Louis Academy) Halloween is no longer a standard school day, so I spent the day at home. I'd been working out a lot, so I decided to rest my body and enjoy the day. If I had a gym to go to, believe me, I would've been there, but the rest days are critical to staying fresh and enjoying every minutes you spend getting better. Most of the day was spent watching Netflix, talking to friends via face time and text; I spent the rest of the day playing with my dog. In the evening I ran the steps of my building, conditioning workout I do once or twice a week, especially since it's getting colder. Before I did stair work, I begged my concerned mother to let me out of the house for about 10 - 15 minutes so I could work on my ball handling. Luckily my mother realizes how important improvement is to me. I finish the night with exercises to strengthen my hip adductors, after which, I stretched my abductors.
