Wondering what to do to get better in your driveway or at the park without a coach? There are many ways to work on your game on your own, and if you are making excuses that you don’t know how, stop it now! There are many resources out there*! Here is a simple workout that you can do consistently to build skill and confidence!
A daily workout with a ball:
Warmup - 20 shoulder pounds, 20 hip pounds, 20 speed pounds ->both hands
Combo Set - Dribble once, then complete a double crossover (Pound, double cross) ->complete 20 reps of this set for both hands (20 right, then 20 left)
Complete the same for the following (20 reps both hands)-
Pound, Cross, Between the legs
Pound, Cross, Behind the back
Pound, Between the legs, Behind the back
*advance with more practice to complete higher reps and remove the pound dribble
Form Shooting - Shoot 25 form shots from just outside the rim. Then move back to about 8 feet and shoot 25 more.
*focus on follow through with your shooting arm by your eye and pointer finger down towards the rim
Spin Out Shots - Spin the ball out to yourself from a range you can shoot consistently without changing your form. Fight for your feet on the catch (try to catch with the same feet each time) and rise into your jump shot. Make 10 from 5 different spots on the court.
Free Throws - Shoot 20 free throws. Keep track of how many you make out of 20, and how many you can make in a row (record highest streak).
THIS WORKOUT COULD BE COMPLETED IN UNDER 20 MINUTES! No excuses!
