The double swing jump rope drill is a more advanced basketball jump rope drill, but it is great for improving your vertical and practicing getting off the ground as quickly as you can. As a big man, there will be times in a game when you need to jump to contest a shot and then immediately jump back up again to rebound the ball. This basketball workout is great for working on multiple jumps in a row.
