Resistance workouts are beginning to revolutionize the way that high level athletes train. This type of training is great because it puts resistance on your muscles and tricks them into working harder than they normally would. Then when you remove the resistance, the athlete is even more explosive because the body is trained to think that the resistance is still there.
All of these resistance workouts include a video instructed by a professional basketball trainer and demonstrated by a high level basketball player. Along with the video there is text to help you maximize your learning time and skill development. This type of learning is great for coaches and players; because as a player you will be able to watch the training video and then you will be able to go and do the exercise yourself, and if you are a basketball coach you will be able to watch the video and then go instruct your players on how to do the drill.
The more athletic and explosive your team is the better chance you have of being able to pressure the ball, run the floor, rebound, etc. Doing these things does not fall solely on your team becoming more athletic and you will have to teach them the different principles of these skills, but having a team that is quicker, faster, and more explosive than the other team makes a big difference. Take the time to train your players with resistance training and see the payoffs down the road.
Being able to go from a standstill or a low speed to full speed quickly is called explosiveness. Explosiveness in basketball can add a lot of value to your game. It can help you get past your defender, rebound the basketball, cut your defender off, and so much more. A great way to work on your explosiveness is resistance training. You will need a partner to do these workouts, but adding them to your basketball training plan will help to make you more athletic and explosive as a player.
