Be thankful.

You make other people feel good when you show them you appreciate the things they do for you.

A simple “thank you” goes a long way and helps you to have better friendships, and you will get along even better with your family.

Gratitude makes you a more positive person.

 

Gratitude

Take some time today and come up with a gratitude list (5 things you are thankful for).

If it doesn’t come naturally, don’t let that stop you from still giving thanks.

#WORKOUT 3

 

#TIP 3. ENERGY MANAGEMENT

This is energy curve. All of us have felt highs and lows in our energy throughout the day.

This is a 24-hour internal clock running in the background of your brain that cycles between alertness and sleepiness.

Every person’s rhythm is slightly different, but the majority stays similar.

 

After waking up our energy levels start to naturally rise.

By around 10am we’ve hit our peak concentration levels that ride out until a natural post-lunch energy dip between 1-3pm.

In the afternoon, our energy levels rise again until falling off again sometime between 9–11pm when most of us go to bed.

 

My challenge for you: 

Try to workout in your peak concentration level hour.

 

Warmup (3 sets x 30 reps each side)

Make sure to do this warm-up prior to each workout in order to maximize your success throughout your Program!

Drill 1 – Alternating Dribble  x 30 Reps Right side

Drill 2 – Same Bounce Dribble x 30 Reps Right side

Drill 3 – High – Low Dribble x 30 Reps Right side

TENNIS BALL DRILL

15 sec (rest), then 30 sec   x 3 ROUNDS

For this drill you will perform as shown above.

Stand with your feet a little wider than shoulder distance apart, pound the ball keeping your chest up and core tight.

Throw tennis ball and catch it, while bouncing basketball ball between your legs.

Don’t forget to replace your feet – one foot forward other foot backward – by bringing both feet to a straight line.

Make sure you catch tennis ball palm down – really engaging the off hand.

Focus on:

  • Hand – eye coordination
  • Footwork
  • Timing & Rhythm
  • Off-hand activation

*If you struggle with any of these drills, make sure to visit them again prior doing your next workout!

#WORKOUT 4

 

#TIP 4. STRENGTH & CONDITIONING

Lunges are one of the most relevant movements for basketball players as it mimics a lot of the

movements that happen in game situations.

Improving movement quality and strength in the lunge on all directions will prevent injuries,

improve speed and especially that first step which is killer in basketball.

Perform these 3 exercises x 15 reps each side.

#WORKOUT 5

 

#TIP 5. MINDSET

How often do you set goals? We all know that setting goals is important, but we don’t often realize how important they are as we continue to move through life.

Goals will be different for each of us.

Setting goals helps trigger new behaviors, helps guides your focus and helps you sustain that momentum in life.

Setting goals and working to achieving them helps us define what we truly want in life.

Setting goals also helps us prioritize things.

 

My challenge to you:

Set the goals for today / this week related with basketball.
