All those who practice this sport have those days to think things like this … “uff but me? If you do not play or ring! ”
Throw in basketball, like everything in life, is usually a matter of habit and when we entered the track before a workout, this time (where we hit “rock” or us a laugh with colleagues before that we call our coach to start) do not give the importance it deserves.
These minutes we have in the track before starting to train are very important and can be the key to distinguishing between a workouts pulling “peaches”, or one in which we leave for home satisfied having given everything we could.
It is clear that all who read these post players will not play in the same position, but I’ll give some tips for training and warm-ups, in order to apply to all players, regardless of positions that you play indoors or outdoors.

Such as always finishing stretch on tiptoe and pointing with his hand inside the ring for a couple of seconds to make the throw or bend your legs enough to not force the arms to pull …
Balance your body and vertical jump (or a little to the basket)
We all love to see our favorite players in the NBA getting incredible shots before two or even three defenders and we think we can do the same, totally forgetting that these players train hard every day and have a superior athleticism to great majority of mortals. I encourage you to first Meddle 80% of your shots match, throwing controlling the body, without big jumps and leaving your hand pointing toward the center of the ring, the best example of this is seeing the big jumps Navarro makes for plugging many baskets. When dominated shot correctly you mood to do more adventures of the type “fade-aways”, “rainbows” and other…
I hope these tips will be of interest to you. Later we go deeper into the details of “shooting baskets” you are most interested to try.
