Exercises To Improve Your Jump Shot

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.

How to Shoot like Stephen Curry Shooting Form Blueprint

Hey I'm Coach Collin Castellaw with Shot Mechanics Basketball and today you're going to learn how to shoot the ball just like StephenCurry Alright so the first thing we are going to talk about is Stephen Curry's feet when he shoots the ball. now your feet are really important because they are kind of the base or foundation of your jump shot and that's where everythingstarts on the way up through So the first thing i wanna talk about is theturn now a lot of coaches will tell you that you need to square up to the basketwhen you shoot the ball meaning that all 10 toes are going to face the rim. Theproblem with this is it adds a ton of tension to your shoulders.

So when you go to release the ball above your head it makes it really difficult and that smooth one motion release that guys like Steph Curry haveso what I think yes you do and what Steph Curry does his you tilt your feetjust slightly off to the side if you're looking to three point line here you cantell my right foot is closer to my left foot and just having the flight killedin yours your feet back as soon as you bring the ball up here shooting hitalbum shoulder and all are aligned to the basket that's gonna help me shootthe ball straighter and eliminate a lot left to right missus I've seen playersthat have been square shooter their tire

life and increase their shootingpercentage maybe ten to twelve percent just by turning their feet immediatelyso it's something that's really really important and something that youprobably want to track so taking jump shots see what you got going on and thenkind of assets you know you wanna make sure you're not turn too far or toolittle you know some people like a small turnsome people like a bigger turn but where you want to be careful of is that you'renot turning too much I've seen players kind of start getting carried away andit's 90 degrees and that makes it pretty

hard to get all that power momentum intothe Basketball as well so generally want to turn your feet somewhere between likeit there was a clock on the ground somewhere between like 11 and 10 30somewhere in there but his players thought that different to think aboutturning your fetus or just like seven and can help unlock all that power yourshoulders to make it a lot easier she with range inconsistency parts of thenext thing you want to think about on your footwork much like Stephon curry ishaving your heels up at all times when you're getting ready to shoot thebasketball a major mistake that a lot of

players make his when they catch theball going into it is it a plant their heelsin the ground as they're stepping into it now the issue with this is as youplace your heels it sucks all your energy momentum into the ground it makesit that much harder to regather it slows you down a time you lose the latterrange and you lose a lot of quickness till one thing you can do is you canmake sure that you're always on the balls of your feet and heels like theground just like this you can tell him on the balls of my feet my heels can actas a natural springboard and allow my

ankles knees and hips to all worktogether to get that quick pop into the jump shot the ball makes it all the wayto the basket really easy really smoothly so a great way to think aboutit is like a diving board I would like to think about it like that if you'retrying to jump off the diving board you don't run player heels into it and tryto bring off you stay on your toes right and jump shots pretty much the samething as you're catching the ball you're getting ready to go into your shockspring off the toes a very little contact time with the ground and usingall three of those joined together get

HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR WEAK HAND DRIBBLING How to Dribble a Basketball Shot Science

I have two arms… but I'm a OneHanded Wonder Hey Team Shot Science! Coach Tom here today and I want to talk to you about developing your Off or Weak Hand for ball handling. Because unless you're dribbling in circles, you need to bring in that other hand. So I'll give you a quick rundown on what you have to do to improve your off hand and then I'll send you off to a couple of drills you can use to get started. So stick around till the end! Okay, here's the bottom line.

If you want to advane to higher levels of basketball you need to advance your level of play. and the essential ingredient towards reaching that goal is to have ambidextrous ball handling skills. Being able to go either way with your dribble will open up so many more doors simply because you've at least doubled the options available to your attack. When you rely just on one hand to carry you through your game you not only limit your options to put the ball on the floor, but you make yourself vulnerable to the defense overplaying your strong side,

exploiting your weaknesses, and completely taking you out of the game. And the truth is that a handicap like this is 100 0x1.044b00001d79p166voidable if you put in the necessary work to develop both hands to an equal ability. So here's what you have to do to get there! First, you need to get thousands of repetitions in to innervate and build your mindmuscle connections. Over time, the constant repetitions will develop your muscle memory to the point where you won't even have to think about what you're doing. It'll just be in your fingertips.

Second, you have to realize that your offhand is going to feel a lot less comfortable doing anything when you first start working with it. It's going to feel weak and clumsy and you'll probably feel like it's a lost cause. But that's how everyone feels at first. You just have to spend considerable extra time working on that hand to bring it up to the ability of your strong hand. If you allow yourself to get frustrated and quit then there's nothing we can do to help you because the final point we have for you is.

You're going to have to work hard on this if you want to make progress. There are no tricks or secret tips for building up your off hand. But we can assure you, if you put in the work and the time you'll reach your goal and be a much more formidable offensive threat. Don't let your weak hand hold you back!
