We did this interview with Luka Svilar in Vitoria, Spain, back in November 2019 before the game between our teams (Baskonia – CSKA, for the record, we lost). Luka has created a successful YouTube channel, 1on1 Performance Interviews, where he hosts strength coaches that are currently working in the Euroleague giving everyone the opportunity to hear what’s going on behind the scenes in the top basketball clubs in Europe.
Luka’s channel, along with other similar projects, (also check Sport Vitamins by Roberto Iezzi) do a great job spreading the word about strength and conditioning in Europe and in basketball in particular. The field is rapidly growing and there are many coaches introducing ideas and methods that fit, not only the hectic schedule of a Euroleague team, but modern basketball in general.
In this Part I, we talk about my personal story and then we dig right into the good stuff… Enjoy!
