Staggered Stance Jump Rope Drill (Same)


Footwork is used in so many areas of the game of basketball. Whether you are a shooter going into your shot from different spots on the floor or a big man posting up on the block and finishing with a good post move, footwork is important. Jump rope workouts are one of the best ways to improve a player’s footwork and make them more efficient when moving on the floor.

The jump rope will force the player to keep their feet moving in a specific pattern and help them learn to stay light on their feet as they are jumping up and down. This basketball workout is not a schoolyard girl’s jump roping activity. It will be full speed; push yourself as hard as you can, and learn to have quick feet. With all the value that jumping rope brings to the player, it is a must-add to any basketball training plan.
