Core Training For Basketball

Published on 09/19/2012 by

The days of just laying on your back and doing crunches are over! Here are a variety of core exercises and drills we use with our players on a weekly basis, both in and out of season. These exercises work the core in all three planes of motion (with varying angles and foot positions) and utilize a variety of modalities. The core plays a vital role in every movement a basketball player makes on the court!

We define the “core” as everything from the chest to the knees… abs, obliques, low back, and glutes/hips. Thanks for watching! .
