LOS ANGELES -- Working with the Department of Health and Human Sciences, the LMU men's basketball team is getting an in-depth look at their strength and conditioning, giving them the knowledge needed to perform better.
Using state of the art equipment, including the DEXA (bone scan) and the VO2 Max test (Volume of Oxygen Consumption), within LMU's Human Performance Lab, the men's basketball program is gaining never before used information to give them an advantage as they continue their off season training heading into their trip to Spain on Aug. 11.
The LMU Sports Network got an inside look at the testing with freshman Simon Krajcovic and talked to Dr. Hawley Almstedt, chair of the Department, at the advantages the Human Performance Lab can have for the Lions.
