Basketball workouts, practices, skill sessions, etc should be planned to generate improvement. This is the process of getting better right? Ganon Baker (a global skills trainer) made a great point of what workouts should be when he said the 3 P’s: “passion, purpose, play”.
1- Passion: Do it with passion because you love it and you are excited to be on the court. Be passionate about getting better. Bring enthusiasm to your workouts to get the most out of yourself and others. Great energy will elevate what you are working on.
2- Purpose: What is your plan? What are you focused on getting better at? Write it down. Work on developing your skills “on purpose, with purpose” with specifics, measurement, and tracking on paper.
3- Play: We have to include play and competition in the process of getting better. Not only is this one of the best ways to learn and get better, but it is also the most fun part. Competing and playing is crucial for improving as a player, as well as a major source of enjoyment in the game.
Whether you are working out with your team, training by yourself, or a coach or player planning workouts to improve, use these 3 P’s to maximize your work.
