Higher Jumps Vertical Jump Training Resistance Bands
Speaker 1: Today we've got a bit of a jumpchallenge. I'm going to show you a little bit of a workout here. It's going to add alittle bit of an endurance portion of it as well as vertical leap. Grab you a nice boxthat's a little challenging for yourself, get your bands on and then lay out a benchor anything that you're going to jump over, it's going to be a barrier. So make it a littlebit challenging, but make sure that you can get over and back. Let me show you real quickand then we'll run through a set. So I got my box height here, make sure you got yourbands on. Let me just tell you when you're wearing the bands and you're working on yourvertical leap you want to make sure that you
control your knees. Don't let them controlyou. A lot of benefits, we've talked about this in hundreds of other tutorials I've postedfor you, but you got to make sure that when you're wearing the bands when you land workagainst the resistance and you're going to build your hips so quick, but if you let themcontrol you or you're not strong enough to do these types of things without the bandson, you probably want to start doing these types of exercises without the bands first.So let's jump into it here. Get your box height a little bit challenging. We're going to goless reps, but I'm going to show you both exercises. Get a good arm sweep on top ofthe box. Soft landings, you either hop back
or just step off, whatever you feel comfortablewith. The most important thing is you get up, get down, get up, get down. It's not afast pace, we're going for height. Nice soft landings. The second part of the exercisewould be speed, but under control. We're going to go over, all about getting your knees up.Let's jump into the workout. We're going to go 8 max jump heights and gofor a 15 second burst right after that for speed. Let's go and get started. 8 reps righthere. That's one, two, three. Make sure that you're landing neutral like that. Don't letyour feet come together, stay under control. I think I got two more. The last one. good. Now we got about 15 secondburst here for speed. Try to get up, get around,
get back over. Readyé Good. Make sure youget your knees up on those. If you start getting dizzy, I got a little bit dizzy there at theend, take your time, maybe don't spin around so fast. Catch your breath, that's a littlebit of endurance. Run through that, three or four sets and push yourself hard.
Basketball Jump Shot Layup Tips Finishing Layups After Contact
Hi, this is Sean Hobson, and what I'm talkingabout right now is how to finish a layup. How to make and use the proper mechanics tomake a good layup when drawing contact. One of the most important things that we see happenall the time is, when guys are coming in to shoot a layup, either they shy away from thecontact, or they're unable to finish against the contact. And this is just something youneed to work on in practice. A lot of times what we do is when we're doing our line layups,I'll either stand underneath with a pad and hit the guys as they're going up for theirshot, or we'll use a situation where they'll pass and then they'll come and defend them,and we'll have them back them a little bit.
But you've got to become good at finishinglayups with contact. And the way you do that is a): you use a power layup. When Zack'scoming down, if he's going to draw contact right here, he's got to be able to come downand seal himself and become strong here, and take that contact to the inside, and and storethat ball up, and be able to finish it on the outside. That's one way. The other way,we've got to make sure not to do, is to have this guy fade away. We don't want him to comedown and fade away from the contact. For one, he's not going to get a good shot off, fortwo, he's not going to draw a foul. So he's got to make sure and take it to this player,draw the contact, then make the shot and finish
it. Let's see what it looks like. Okay, hegot a foul, and that's what we want. There's going to be two things that happen when youtake it in strongeither you're going to make the shot, or you're going to draw a foul.But the one thing he did was he took it to the basket, he didn't fade away, because ifhe would have faded away and missed the shot, we get no foul, we get nothing about of it.So it's important to try to finish the layup and go up strong against the defender.
