As I have mentioned before, the game of basketball requires so many skills. Successful basketball players must be able to pass, dribble, shoot, and finish. They must also have strength, power, speed, agility, and endurance. All of these attributes are skills that can and must be incoporated into a player’s basketball training regimen. Upon first look, all of this really seems like a lot. However, if you get creative and combine some of the skills into the same drills you can cut down on training time and make the workout much more basketball specific.
One way to combine skills is to incorporate the agility ladder into your workouts with the basketball.
