Make 10 shots (1 set) from the 7 Midrange Locations
After each set, do one of the following exercises baseline to baseline:
Walk on tiptoes, forward then backwards
Walk on tiptoes, feet pointed in/out
Hop forward then backwards
Hop on one leg then the other
The exercises will strengthen the muscles of the lower leg and ankle and make them almost bullet proof, if you do them reguarly. I like to use this drill for players that have recovered from ankle sprains. Players recover from sprains but often don’t stay on any type of stretching and flexibility program. These exercises, followed with a good stretching program will help keep ankles strong and flexible.
Always consult appropriate adults or professionals before using or incorporating anything on NYBasketball.
