Basketball at Home Workouts

Updated: May 11




I hope this finds everyone in the best of health and spirits. I am not going to lie, I am going absolutely crazy not being in the gym!


We decided to start sharing one basic workout every Week for the duration of the quarantine.


Please if you do not feel well , don't do this workout & if necessary seek medical assistance. Rest, gain your strength, get better so you can come back stronger.


Always go game speed! Push yourself, you are not going to get better if you do things half speed. Game speed will be different for everyone. Quality over quantity.


"Be quick but don't hurry"


This workout should take you around 45 minutes - 1 hour to complete.


If you have any questions please email me at : coach.ish@eaglebasketballacademy.com

Enjoy!

Basic Basketball Workout


Warm up = 5 mins


Make sure you don’t start this workout without a warm up! Light jog, get the blood flowing, stretch upper & lower body while in movement.


Jog/Run = 20 min


Run at a pace where you can carry a conversation with someone. The goal here is not to kill yourself but to improve your overall cardio level !


Basketball is 80-90% percent running. A simple jog can do so much to your cardio level as well as your game! YES! Running helps your game.


You want to be able to do intense skill work? Want to be able to hoop at a high level for long periods of time? Want to finish first on ladder runs for practice? RUN! Get that cardio up!


If this is too difficult for you, run 4 min, walk 1 min, for a total of 20 min, until you are ready for a full 20 min jog .


Stationary One Ball

Dribble Series =

10-15 min


Note: Before you start this part of the workout, I cannot stress enough how important it is to do these drills at GAME SPEED. QUALITY OVER QUANTITY
