Jayson Tatum has improved his strength over the summer
Prior to the end of the Celtics season, rookie Jayson Tatum indicated he would be building his strength over the summer. It looks like he has done just that.
Tatum said he's gotten stronger this summer. "That's probably been the biggest focus. I'm still young so it's hard to really just throw on a bunch of extra pounds. But I've definitely gotten a lot stronger. ... I just wanted to get my body right and keep getting stronger."
My clients often comment, "I am much stronger, but I just don't see any difference in the muscle". They are puzzled. Muscle lags behind strength in most people, but we should visually see a difference in Tatum in the coming months. But for now, the added strength will serve him well this season.
