Basketball Training Workout #2 – Perfect Practice Makes Perfect

Hey Everyone,

So Workout #2 is below. Remember, when you’re training and doing a workout, make sure you go at game speed. That doesn’t just mean running, jumping, and playing at game speed… make sure you’re concentrating on what you’re doing.

Remember to pound the ball when you’re dribbling, really sell your dribble moves (over exaggerate the move to get the defense to really bit the fakes) and focus on making shots, not just taking shots.

Your ability to maintain your concentration and effort for your entire workout is what will lead to quicker improvements and really set you apart from other players who just go through the motions.

And don’t worry about messing up when performing your drills. If you’re not messing up the first few times you do a drill, you’re probably not going hard enough.

Don’t get frustrated… take a deep breath, go through the drill motions at half-speed to get a good feel for the movement for the first few reps (these don’t count towards successfully completing the drill), then gradually speed up to game speed.




Here’s your workout:
