A jump shot and speed development

There are 8 different exercises aimed to develop the skills of both jump shot and starting speed!


These exercises are designed to mimic various movements of basketball players during the game, which makes them twice as effective. In order to perform these exercises, you will need some sort of elevation, preferably a stationary one.

You can also use a sturdy chair, but it is not the best option since it is not completely motionless, and there is a risk of falling when you jump on it.

8 Killer Explosiveness Drills for Basketball Players (Box Jumps)

Here are 8 killer box jump drills you can do to increase your explosiveness on the court this season. This video is powered by Thanks for watching! .

Playing in the central position

The main objective in this case is to step behind the defender’s leg. To do this your step should be wide enough, but not too much – otherwise, you will just lose your balance.


If you are not able to step behind the defender’s leg from where you’re standing, make the ball hit the ground, shift yourself a little, and then try again.

Next – when you are turning – keep your elbow high and parallel to the ground – this way you will be able to limit the movements of the defender and prevent him from regaining his position quickly.

Attacking movements

The fake shot is one of the most popular tricks in basketball. Begin the exercise by performing it, and then take a step with a hit, crossover the ball in front of you – preferably with a short pause. Then perform a sharp acceleration with a change of movement.


A hit, two steps and it’s the time to throw the ball over the defense on a high trajectory. You can alternate and perform it both with the rebound from the shield and without it.
