Front Squat Exercise

Front Squat Exercise

 

One of the core exercises that every basketball player (that is old enough) should be doing is squats. There are several different squat variations that can be done, but this basketball workout video will cover the front squat exercise. Front squats are going to really help build up the player’s core strength and also their legs. The core and legs are where a player’s power and explosiveness come from, so this is very important.

It is not enough to spend time working on the court to become a better player because basketball is becoming more and more fast-paced and athletic. Along with your on-court basketball training, there needs to be specific time spent developing strength, explosiveness, etc. This is a great basketball exercise to get started with. Make sure, though, that you really focus on the form and technique for this exercise. Doing it the correct way will make sure that you are getting maximum results and will also help to prevent injuries.
