10 BEST Basketball Drills For BEGINNERS!! πŸ’ͺπŸ€


– Hey, what’s up, ya’ll? Coach Rock here, the official trainer for I Love Basketball TV, and guess what? In today’s video, I’m gonna be showing the best ten drills for a
beginner basketball player. Now if you’re an advanced
player or you think you’re an advanced player,
don’t disregard this video because a lot of times advanced players can really use the fundamentals. So in this video, they’re beginner drills focusing on the fundamentals. And how I like to phrase
it is in basketball, when you’re training your skills, it’s kinda like you’re
building a house, right? We have to have the foundation,
the foundational skills, down before we can become
an advanced player, before we can become an elite player. Think about a big house, like you can have the biggest house ever, but
if it’s on a weak foundation, the house is gonna fall over. But once you have that good foundation, then your potential is limitless. So in this video today, I’m
gonna be focusing on ten drills. These ten drills are gonna
help you with your finishing, your scoring, your
dribbling, your defense. We’re focusing on
everything in this video. And then stay tuned for
next week, next Friday we’re gonna be uploading ten drills for advanced basketball players. So that means you have the
whole week to master these and then you can try the advanced drills or if you’re an advanced player, you can still do these this week and then come back next week
for the advanced drills. First drill, Mikan Drill. We’re doing three sets
of ten with both hands. (rap beat) Next drill, pretty much the same thing, Reverse Mikan, three sets of ten. (rap beat) Alright, next drill we’re getting into, Zig Zag Ball Handling. We have three moves, we
have cross, between, behind. First set, cross. Second set, between. Last set, behind. When you get to the
last cone, don’t worry, I’m gonna show you everything, when you get to the last cone, you’re dribbling
baseline, you’re spinning, you’re gonna get to the rim in
as few dribbles as possible. From half court you should be able to get there in two dribbles. So you’re gonna do that and then, I’m not gonna go over it
now, just to save time, but you would take the same drill, move it to the other side of
the court, and work on that. Me, I’mma just focus on
the left hand right now, work on that weak side. If you can only do one
side, work on your weak hand so you can improve that. Let’s get straight into this drill. (rap beat) Next drill, drill number four, we’re working on One
Dribble Move Pull Ups. So we’re gonna practice
real game situations. You’re gonna approach
the guy at the top here, and we’re either doing a cross, between the legs, or behind the back. And then we’re gonna get
into a shot at the elbow. So what I would say do is five makes, each side off of each move. So what’s that gonna be,
like, 30 makes, right? Five, ten for crossovers. Five, ten for between the legs. Five, ten for behind the back. That’ll be 30. Now I’m not gonna go through all the reps, but I will do a few reps so you can see how to do this drill live. (rap beat) By the way, don’t forget, I’ll have the set and reps
in the description for you, so that way you don’t gotta keep referring back to the videos. I’ll have the time stamp, and I’ll have the set
and reps by each drill. So that way today you
watch it all through, learn the drills, but then
when you get to the gym, there might be like three or four that you really just wanna come back to, so instead of having to
watch the whole video, I’ll have the time stamp for you so you can keep coming back,
click, watch the video, you’ll see the set and
reps right by that link, and you can keep on moving. But, with that being said, let’s get straight into drill number five. Pretty self explanatory, Form Shooting. So in this drill we’re
gonna be in the front, and we’re gonna do the two sides. Just do ten makes, each spot. (rap beat) Next drill we’re gonna get
into, it’s Spot Shooting. If you’re by yourself, you
have to get your own rebounds. If you have a partner, you could have them get your rebounds, but
what I like to do sometimes, this will also help you with conditioning, help you get used to following your shot, you’re gonna shoot, if you have a partner, you guys will do each
spot, five spots we have, you’re gonna make ten at each spot, but if you have a partner
you’re gonna make, get your rebound past your partner, he gonna shoot, he gonna
get his rebound past you. So this will kinda get
things going quickly. It won’t help you get that rhythm. It’s easy to make a lot of shots you standing there shooting. It’s a little more difficult to shoot, get your rebound, reset, and shoot. That’s why we’re gonna do
that in this drill right here. (rap beat) Next drill we’re gonna get into
is Elbow to Elbow shooting. Because I have a partner, in
this drill I’m gonna use him to get my rebounds, and
I’ll get his rebounds. Go elbow to elbow, make ten each elbow. So that means you’ll be making 20. But a key here is to use proper footwork. If you’re by yourself, then
you gotta get your rebound, run to the elbow, and shoot, but you could still use proper footwork. (rap beat) Next drill we’re gonna work
on is at the top of the key. We’re working on Pump Fake Pull Ups. Pump fakes are extremely important. They’re one of the most
lethal moves you can use, especially as a beginner player. So utilize that pump
fake, and then pull up. I have a partner, so again, we’re gonna do it where I
shoot, I get my rebound, pass. This is gonna work on my conditioning, also get me out of rhythm,
so I can’t build a rhythm, but saves you just have
your parents rebounding then they can just get your
rebound, keep passing to you. But I like messing up the rhythm because in the game you’re never gonna take ten shots just standing there, right? You’re gonna take a shot, run
down, run back, take a shot. So that’s what we’re gonna try
to simulate in these drills. (rap beat) Next drill, we’re working
One Dribble Lay Ups from outside the three point line. A lot of players take too many dribbles to get to the basket, allows
the defense to recover. In this drill we’re gonna take
one dribble, regular lay up. You do ten on both sides. I’m only gonna do the left side, again, working on my weakness, on my weak hand. But I want you do to both sides. (rap beat) Last drill is gonna focus
on conditioning and defense. Defensive Slides. So we’re gonna do the zig zag, kinda like we did for dribbling, but we’re gonna be sliding our feet. It’s gonna help you
practice opening footwork. First time through,
we’re going really slow. That’s gonna get you used
to getting in this position. It’s gonna burn a little bit. Get you used to moving
your feet, proper footwork. Then the next time through,
we can speed it up. (rap beat) So again, remember, I have the drills in
