Making a dribble move to get by a defender is only the first part of the movement. The second part is being able to explode past that defender and get to the next level. So whether it is in transition or in the half court, it is important that you learn how to be explosive past the defender after you make your dribble move. This resistance workout is going to work on this exact skill.
The basketball workout below is going to teach the player the correct movement of getting past the defender, and then also help to develop the players explosiveness through repetitions. The resistance band is going to place added difficulty on the player, which will really help to develop that quick first step that you are looking for. A big key to this drill is making sure that you are really locking in on the technique of the movement. Try to eliminate all unneeded motion.
