Dominate On The Court – The Best Strength Training Exercise For Basketball!

Dominate on the Court – The Best Strength Training Exercise For Basketball!

Strength training for athletes should always focus on the overall development of strength, power, speed, explosiveness, and overall conditioning. If these traits are obtained through properly prescribed strength training drills then your basketball game will improve, period!
As a professional if I could suggest a single lift for you to include into your strength and conditioning training it would be the single arm overhead kettlebell snatch. By implementing this lift you will improve the strength of your core, your hip power, shoulder stability, and cardiovascular fitness. This single lift is tremendous because it is incorporating the use of hundreds of your muscles at once in order to pull it off. 
To perform this drill you must pull the bell from either the ground or from between your legs and lift it to a held position above your head. This is done by you having to forcefully flex and then extend at both your hip and knee joints to create the momentum to elevate the bell to a high position lateral to your head. Once the bell is elevated to this high position you must complete the lift by vertically punching your palm towards the sky. As you punch your palm lock out your elbow and shoulder to secure the weight overhead. This lift will drastically improve your explosive strength training qualities. Take the time to learn and master the single arm overhead snatch.
If you haven’t already included the ancient kettlebell into your personal strength and conditioning program then you are missing out on a big opportunity to really improve your game. Remember that anyone can train hard, but only champions train smart my friend!
