Basketball is a team sport in which two teams, most commonly with five players each, opposing one another on a rectangular court, compete with the primary objective of shooting a basketball through the defender’s hoop.
Women Fitness Team got an opportunity to interview three inspiring female basketball players to share their diet & fitness routine along with a message for fan & followers. Go check them out.
Tamara Abalde Díaz started playing basketball when she was eight years old. According to her “Basketball has always been a huge part of my life, my father played professionally in the first league in Spain and my little brother also became a professional basketball player, so the passion for this sport definitely runs in our family“
Talking to Women Fitness this is what the champ has to say “Playing for the Spanish National Team has always made extremely proud. I was lucky to be able to enjoy representing my country in tournaments around the world since I was fourteen, and winning this gold medal while I was at the top of my career was very special. And the fact that it happened in Belgrade, where I have family and consider my second home, made it magical“
Advice and motivational words to the inspiring and budding basketball-playing girls
My advice would be to enjoy every moment. Have fun playing with your friends, have fun practicing. It takes a lot of hard work to succeed, to be able to play professional, and I think it’s very important enjoy the process. Basketball has given me so many special moments to cherish, and the most important thing: some amazing people I was lucky to meet along the way.
Fitness regime or workout routine you may wish to share?
During the season the team’s strength and conditioning coach is in charge of the whole training planning. It involves basketball practices (individuals and with the team), workouts in the weight’s room and some specific work to preventive injuries, plus the games of course. When I’m off season I love to exercise outside as much as I can. I go out for runs at the park or at the beach, and I do a lot of functional workouts with my body weight to stay strong. I like to do some yoga and Pilates during summers as well.
Do you take a special diet or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
I like to eat healthy but no special diets or strict menus. I follow a Mediterranean type of diet. Lots of fish and vegetables, chicken and some read meat. I also eat pasta, rice and good bread. I love all kinds of fruit, especially during summer, and I could not live without cheese.
