10:00 am-11:00 am
I am creating my product essentially, which is my workout log. This log has what I did with Braylon that day and what I will do with him the next workout. The log also has what I thought about the workout afterwards as well as my opinion on Braylon’s progress. I will even include Braylon’s game stats on the workout log.
My workout log will be used to track Braylon’s progress and serve as a notebook for me to put my thoughts on different sessions. This log took quite a bit of time as I had to type my thoughts as well as make a chart for Braylon’s progress on certain skills. I’ll test those skills two more times and in between testing those skills I’ll work on his weaknesses and sharpen his strengths as a basketball player.
I am working diligently on the foundation for my workout log and logging in Braylon’s shooting numbers as well as my plans for the next session and future ones to come.
1:00 pm-2:30 pm
1 hour and 45 minutes
I met with my facilitator Orlando and my nephew as well as my sister at L.A. Fitness in order to start Braylon’s (my nephew) training. The first workout was essentially me just testing Braylon with simple drills. I recorded his progress on different shots. I did this in order to see where he was as a player, and this is when I realized he is pretty above average for his 10 year old age.
Braylon is a very promising player, but he does lack a certain amount of focus at times which is expected due to his young age. Braylon showed a very exceptional shooting ability although his form does need work. He has a distinctly extensive range outside of the 3 point line compared to most average 10 year olds. I was very impressed with his shooting stats but they were inconsistent when he moved spots especially from beyond the arc.
In this picture I’m helping Braylon adjust his form as he has the tendency to stick his elbow out which decreasing his power and range.
I am rebounding for Braylon as he’s shooting off of the catch and making sure his shot preparation and his footwork are correct in order to get the most out of his jumper.
I took some time to log in what I thought of Braylon's first workout and where we could go from there.
Braylon struggled to focus for a good part of the workout but he flashed some very encouraging skills when he did focus. He showed a nice jumper with plenty of range. He also displayed good ability to shoot off the dribble.a
I a logging in my thoughts on the workout as well as what we will do during our next workout.

2 hours and 5 minutes
My mom and I Rode nearly a hour and a half to Norcross, Ga to watch my nephew play a game so that I can see his in-game performance as well as track his statistics. This ride took 20 minutes longer than expected due to heavy traffic on the highway. The ride back was a little better as it only took about 50 minutes on the way back home.
I will attending Braylon's games in order to record his stats and just get my eyes on how he plays in a real game situation. I'll record these stats to my workout log and notebook and I'll analyze how his stats, performance,and even the intangibles I see.
I am embarking on my hour long drive to a gym in a Norcross for my nephew's basketball game.
I reached alpharetta and it has been around 35 minutes with plenty of time left until my mom and I reach the city of Norcross
We are around 15-20 minutes away from the gym in Norcross and it has taken what it feels like an eternity.
2:30 pm – 4:15
I went to a basketball gym in Norcross to watch Braylon play. This game is important, because it allow to gauge where he is a player as game situations are the best environments to reveal strengths and weaknesses. I watched Braylon have a solid game though he could've played better.
Braylon's game was very fun to watch, as the atmosphere was pretty intense from the players to the parents to the coaches. Braylon had 15 points, 4 rebounds, 4 blocks, and he shot 4 of 9 from the field. He showed superior athleticism and feel for the game but he lacked aggressiveness attacking from the perimeter. He settled for threes all throughout the game and seldom attacked the basket. I'll definitely be focusing on his perimeter attacking during our next workout.
I'm watching Braylon's game intently as I study his strengths and weaknesses as well as his body language and intensity.

I logged into my workout log again and stated my honest thoughts about Braylon's performance during his game as well as what I will work on with him during our next workout.
Braylon shot a lot of three pointers and a majority of them were not quality. He was rushing his form and his shot and he did not set his feet well at all. Braylon at best is streaky three point shooter that shows potential but right now is pretty inefficient. He was very passive as far as getting to the rim and he wasn't very active on the glass. I will need to work with him on his finishing and his shot footwork during our next workout.
I sat down after procrastinating a little and typed up what I thought about Braylon's performance during his game.
10:00 am -11:30 am
1 hour and 30 minutes
During this workout I put Braylon through quite a few workouts to work on what I saw from his game. I had Braylon shooting on the move making sure his form was correct as well as his footwork. I then had him working on his ability to attack the basket by pump faking and going hard to the rim and making a layup on both sides of the rim with each of his hands. I really had him focus on his aggressiveness and footwork on his rim attacking. I then made sure to work on his free throws and I made him sprint from one end of the court back to the other if he missed the first free throw out of 2.
Braylon showed in his game that he is good athlete for his age, he has intriguing range on his jumper, as well as the potential to be an exceptional finisher at the rim. He did however struggle with physicality and getting his feet set when he shoots. To combat this we worked hard on his slashing and footwork on his jumper. He,just like every 10 year old, also struggled during the workout with the footwork part of the drills due to the fact training is new to him and the footwork I was teaching him was rather advanced. He did get a good grasp on the concept and I think he will make even more strides our next workout. Braylon also struggled with focusing and really listening to what I saying in the beginning of the workout, but he did correct it and was very locked in for most of the workout.
I am working with Braylon on finshing at the rim hard and strong by using a power hop at the rim
Braylon and I are stretching as we have hard workout coming up and we really want to get after it and not hurt anything.
Sunday, February 19
I spent some time logging in my observations and future plans into my workout log.
I liked the progress Braylon made with his finishing at the rim and his footwork. He's really starting to understand how to use his superior athletic gifts to get what he wants on offense. His footwork is coming along and he's starting to grasp the idea of its importance as far his balance and accuracy on his shot is concerned. I plan on working on his jumpshot footwork and his finishing at the rim during on next workout. I also need to make sure he stays focus throughout the workout and doesn't have his mental lapses, which are expected in a 10 year old.
I'm typing up what I think about Braylons progress in my workout log and expressing what I think we need to continue working on.

6:00 pm- 7:15pm
1 hour 15 minutes
I worked Braylon outside for the first time and he had his best session yet. We worked on his shooting off of the catch as well as his finishing at the rim. I even threw in around 50 reps of off the dribble pull-ups so he can get the feel for a more advanced part of the offensive game.
Braylon and I went outside and got a lot of reps in and he was very focused from the beginning of the workout to the end. He looked very good while shooting off of the dribble. He also looked better in the footwork area and his finishing looked good. We couldn’t go as long as I wanted because of the cold weather and I wasn’t feeling very good health-wise either.
I was putting Braylon through a shooting drill that required him to get good lift and footwork on his jumper.
I was making sure Braylon was getting a good hop on his shot preparation in order to get maximum balance and rhythm on his jumper.

2 hours and 5 minutes
I rode with my sister and Braylon to Braylon's game in Norcross, Georgia and due to traffic once again it took an hour to get there and another hour to get back home. I rode back home with my mom who took me to the doctor.
There was a a lot of traffic on I-75 which delayed our ride to Norcross and it was miserable for me as my head was pounding and I did not feel well at all. My mom would come to the game late and take me home after the game because of how I felt. I would go to the doctor later that day to find out that I had the flu and an upper respiratory infection.
We were drawing closer to Norcross as we passed through Dekalb County
We had to pass through East Cobb on the way back in a futile attempt to avoid traffic

2:00 pm- 3:30 pm
Braylon's game was a game against the coaches and would be a good test to see if he can finish well and apply other things that I taught him against grown men. He played pretty terribly and 4 points and shot 2 for 11 from the field. He also racked up 6 turnovers and no assists or rebounds, not to mention his awful body language.
Braylon played the worst game I've ever seen him play and he had the worst attitude I've ever seen him have. I tried to help him out and talk to him but he ignored me and terrible play continued. He did not shoot well nor did he finish well and his footwork was nonexistent as well as his aggression going to the rim. He settled for way too many threes and rarely went to the basket despite being quicker than most of his defenders. His play was reflective of his team's as they lost pretty handily to the coaches. Braylon will have to step his play up and improve his attitude going into travel basketball and summer basketball.
I had just finished telling Braylon to lock in mentally and take his warm up time more seriously
I told Braylon to play smart and be aggressive while he's out there.

12:15 pm- 1:15 pm
I went to my sister's house and put Braylon through his recovery session by icing him on and off for 20 minutes each and then having him stretch.
I was diagnosed with the flu and day before working with Braylon so my nerves and patience were minimal. I was still upset and disappointed with how Braylon played and acted during his game and wasn't the most enthusiastic trainer. I still have to learn how to be patient and always smile while I am with him as he feeds off my energy and is very impressionable.
I was showing him how to stretch his back as your back plays a key role in your athletic ability as a player.
(Hit tab to create another row.)nd accuracy on his shot is concerned. I plan on working on his jumpshot footwork and his finishing at the rim during on next workout. I also need to make sure he stays focus throughout the workout and doesn't have his mental lapses, which are expected in a 10 year old.
