First TV Show
In 2014, Chandler Parsons made his first TV show appearance on the comedy talk show, Chelsea Lately.
In the summer of 2017, Chandler enlisted the help of Dr. John Meyer, a physical therapist, in a bid to put his injury troubles behind and to get his body in the best possible shape for the new season. As a part of his fitness routine, he was asked to work out 5 times a week.
The workout would usually start by using a vibrating foam to loosen up his leg muscles. It would be followed by some stretching and manual therapy by Meyer to simulate his leg muscles. During the conditioning exercises, he wasn’t allowed to lift any weight heavier than 20 pounds. The focus was to work on his jumping, balance, cutting, and deacceleration with an overall emphasis on multidirectional lunges and high-speed explosive movements.
Apart from boosting his in-game fitness strength, Meyer also focused on improving the mobility and flexibility of his ankles and hips along with his core strength.
