Especially Zhou Qi, as the most controversial star in the CBA, all attention will be focused on him when Yi Jianlian is likely to be absent due to injury. Recently, Zhou Qi updated social media and posted a video of his own strength training, which is obviously stronger than before.
It can be seen that the dumbbells used by Zhou Qi are replaced with heavier weights, and the muscle lines of the shoulders, back, and arms are more stylish than before. His trainer revealed that Zhou Qi has successfully gained 7 kg (14 kg)!
In fact, gaining weight has been the focus of Zhou Qi's training in recent years. During the CBA suspension last season, his agent Sui Ran broke the news in the live broadcast: "Zhou Qi's current weight has reached 112 kg!" At the time of the NBA physical test, Zhou Qi's weight was 99 kg. During this period, he gained a total of weight. 13 kg.
实际上，近年来体重增加一直是周琦训练的重点。在上赛季CBA停赛期间，他的经纪人Suan Ran在直播中爆料：“周其的当前体重已经达到112公斤！”在进行NBA身体检查时，周琦的体重为99公斤。在此期间，他的体重增加了。 13公斤
Plus the current 7 kg, Zhou Qi's weight should be 119 kg. Rudy Gobert, who is also 2.16 meters tall, weighs 117 kg. Zhou Qi's current weight is almost the same as that of a player of the same height in the NBA, and even exceeds Gobert's by 2 kilograms.
In the 2019-20 season, Zhou Qi played 44 games for the Xinjiang team, averaging 22 points, 13.1 rebounds, 2 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.2 blocks per game. He was successfully selected to the CBA All-NBA Second Team and was elected the best defensive player of the 2019-20 season. In the MVP vote, Yi Jianlian also only won Zhou Qi 1 vote.
But his old problem of being too light and poor still exists. In the last game of Xinjiang last season, Zhou Qi experienced exhaustion in the most critical fourth quarter. Even the commentator bluntly said: "Why do you feel that Zhou Qi is pouring lead?" Zhou Qi had 6 fouls and 6 turnovers in the audience. These problems cast a shadow on his performance throughout the season.
After all, professional players can only talk with the ball. This weight gain may be Zhou Qi's first step to break the doubt. In fact, in this crazy offseason, Xinjiang has changed a lot. Five players left the team, and many young players were promoted to the first team. The burden on Zhou Qi's shoulders next season will be heavier than before.
But the helpers around Zhou Qi have also been upgraded. Motai Yunas, the former "CBA No. 1 Foreigner", signed a one-year contract with Xinjiang. In the 2019-20 season, he played 28 games for the Shanghai Men's Basketball Team, averaging 22.8 points, 15.1 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 steals per game. Zhou Qi + Motel, without the UAE, may become the best insider combination for CBA.
What is the effect of Zhou Qi's weight gain, it will be clear after watching the game. I hope this almost new Xinjiang team can surprise us. I also hope that Zhou Qi can catch up with the high hoped self this time.
