Super Human Dribbling V1 + Bonus
Workout 1 – Laying The Foundation
This workout will take you through some basic footwork that is used throughout the entire workout in many different variations. Initially these are done of a triple threat position but this footwork will be used in off the dribble drills and moves as well.
Workout 2 – Foundation Upgraded
This workout includes the same footwork used in workout 1 but offers it in different variations and adds the bounce the ball to yourself method. This method helps players to get low and to get used to exploding from a low position to the basket while retrieving the ball. This works on coordination, balance and explosion.
Workout 3 – Dribble Up Series Intro
This introduces players to the behind the back jumpstop. We go through a couple variations of the series, ending with a jumpstop double behind the back which is a very high level in game move.
Workout 4 – Hands Up
In this series we focus changing our speed, one of the most key things in learning to go past your defender. Also emphasized in every move is a ‘hands up’ fake where we bring our off hand close to the ball as if we are going to pull up and shoot but end up crossing over at the last second instead. This potentially leaves players off balance with their ‘hands up’.
Workout 5 – Ball Exposed
This workout we introduce a method that exposes the ball to the defender by dribbling in front of the body before a move is made, just enough to get the defender to bite on a reach which will have him beat by time we explode to the basket. We still emphasize change of speed. Then we finish with a 3 part explosive move. All this is still using the same foundational footwork shown in workout 1 and 2.
Workout 6 – Retrieve The Ball
This introduces the ‘Throw The Ball Out To Self’ series where the player throws the ball out to themselves then go retrieve it. This style of training will be new to many. This helped me take my game to new heights as I perfected variations of this for years. It helped me to be ultra comfortable catching passes however they were thrown, not panic upon retrieving the ball in game and keeping my dribble, improve my hand eye coordination and mostly helped my in game reaction time. Very few times will a player be able to plan his moves out and execute in full, most things are reactionary. Which is why it is important to be so comfortable with the basketball that reacting in a fraction of a second isn’t an issue and becomes natural.
Workout 7 – Resistance
This style of workout may not include actual in game moves that a player will pull off. And its not meant to. Its meant to run a player through difficult and more complex type of moves which makes regular in-game type moves a step down and that much easier to execute.
Workout 8 – Keeping In Stride
This workout is again added resistance type moves. The goal of these is to stay in stride as seamlessly as possible and still pull off the moves without changing your speed as well. The goal is to be smooth. This should challenge players to really key in and concentrate hard which by default will improve hand eye coordination and comfortability with the basketball.
Workout 9 – Triple Combo
These ‘Toss the Ball Out To Self’ drills are made up of three steps each(triple combo) and emphasize changing direction if a defender doesn’t go for the initial 1 or 2 moves.
Workout 10 – Pull Up on a Dime
Again helping to improve timing and staying in stride these drills also challenge the player to execute high level moves and pull up for a jumpshot on a dime. A player should want to get to a point to where he can pull up for a jump shot at the exact moment he feels anywhere close to enough space.
Workout 11 – Looping in Stride
This workout introduces a looping between the legs. This is when a player goes between the front side of his legs back to the same hand he started with. This should be a coordination challenge, especially when trying to keep in stride and stay moving forward. This drill tends to be tough because naturally a looping between the legs dribble can cause the ball to trail us if not executed right.
Workout 12 – Explosion
This last workout starts with probably the most challenging looping between the legs drill. Then closes out with 2 drills that work on change of speed, timing and explosion. 3 things that are vital if aiming toward having seemingly ‘Super-Human’ type ball handling skill set.
