To improve your skills and become an elite player, you need to work on your skills outside of your team practices.
Those extra reps will improve your ball-handling, shooting, scoring, and playmaking.
To help, we’re providing you more than 12 basketball workout plans that will take your skills to the next level. But before we get to the workouts, there are 3 important lessons to apply to the workouts.
Tip 1) Practice "Consistently"
The most important key to improve your skills is... CONSISTENCY.
You need to practice consistently.
Take shooting as an example. To become a great shooter, you need to practice consistently! Players complain all the time about how they just can't put the ball in the basket, that their shot doesn't feel right, and so on. So what do many of them do? They go to the gym and shoot 1000 shots - and then don't work on their shot for another week or two.
That's like someone complaining that they are overweight, so they cut out all fast food and sugar out of their diet for a day. Then a couple weeks later they look in the mirror and realize they are still overweight so they "diet" for another day. Sounds ridiculous, doesn't it?
