Part II: Hot Hands & Feet CYCLE through A,B,C – includes a rotation of these three sets.
A: Footspeed Circuit – Watch this video – 2 minutes per drill (you will circle through this again) – you pick one at a time from line jump, fast feet, ladder, cones, change of speed, D slides, JUMP ROPE!
B: Spot Shooting or Five-Spot Combo Shooting NEW DRILLS by The Dish (like our midrange series) – click here to see basic spot shooting, but DO NOT SHOOT ALL THREES! Stay in range! – Pick a spot in your range and time how far you can go in 5-10 minutes, use a timer to see how many you can make in two minutes for example, then one minute, then two minutes, etc. – then be ready to repeat feet, spot shooting, lefties (next)
C: Weak hand finishes or series – pick the hard ones or simple ones – make 10-25 of them then cycle back up to A.
(••Here is a video on an entire series to develop the weak side handles to finishes (it’s 15 min, all of our same stuff, but it’s good if you want to do all of this for 5-15 min to improve your weak hand.)
REPEAT THE ABOVE A, B and C. As many times as you wish.
Write down your total time and any drills or goals you have.
Email me if you have any ? and feel free to send me images or clips of you going to work. I am proud of you for staying disciplined, and hope you are proud, too!
