hello, i been really consistent this last week doing ball handling drill, I try to do the same drill because starting a new drill everyday wouldnt help me improve, the two main drills i've been doing are mostly Maravich drills, around the body drill, figure eight, taps, etc. I know i just started doing these and i've been doing about five to ten minutes a day(depends on how bad i mess up) and i'm starting to get discourage and impatient cause i don't feel like i'm getting the big improvements like i thought. Could somebody that has really improve their dribbling skills give me some insight? thanks
5-10 minutes per drill or just in total??? If it's 10 minutes total then you need to practice more. Usually I do like 40 minutes of maravich and other ball handling drills, an hour shooting and then half an hour conditioning and free throws. If you don't have time to practice then when you're watching TV you can do all the Pistol non-dribbling drills, which helps a lot too.
yeah those ive been doing those so i need to do more sets? and thank you for replying o and yeah like in total its ten minutes of hard work though.
ill tell u this right now if u aint gonna put in the work then u might as well give up now. u gotta practice practice practice everday of the week. its gotta be like a routine, like brushin ur teeth. uve been practicing for 10 minutes for 1 week and ur alrdy complainin? come onn man. since december, ive been literally doing nothing but practicing basketball. ive nvr put more dedication in anythin like i hav wit bball. i just fell in love wit the game this year. i practice a half hour a day just on ball handling every single day of the week, ill take mayb a day off after a month or so but thats cause of other stuff. i will tell u this... be patient man. do ur research on ball handlin moves. its not bout how many hours u do but wat u put in the hours. do different drills...doin the same ones after a while wont get u anywhere (how can u get better doin the same crap over and over?). do 50 power dribbles with each hand for 2 weeks (standard dribbles, in and outs, behind the back, crossover)- do those stationary. u gottta get comfortable wit ur handles first then start working on ur dribble drive moves. some good moves are- ur moving cross overs, cross over then behind the back, drive pump fake then spin on inside pivot foot. in n out, behinmd the back, step back, head fake, then drive (haha great move right there.) i woulkdnt consider myself a good baller thats y i practice everyday. u gotta put in the work!!! i heard this quote once its rly good "if ur not practicing harder than the day before then u rnt doing ur job"
lol yeah i hear you, but it's unfair for you to say i don't put in work, cause you don't know me, and i didn't fully tell you everything. I'm still doing those drills just adding more reps, and i still haven't got an answer. I'm already putting in the work, thanks for the response.
yeah you do drills for thirty minutes but do you go hard? do you lose the ball? do you do difficult drills? are your arms burning? how heavy are you sweating? and i'm not complaining but i understand how it could sound like i was. I know how to put work in just thinking about it know i problely need more reps, but i do feel some improvement i'm getting a better grip on the ball, and my left is slowly improving,but i still would like my question to be answered.
yea idk how hard u work so yea my bad. u gotta practice harder than comfortable thats how u improve. ok so to answer ur question its "as long as it takes". everybody is different and everybodies work ethic is different. if ur practicin 10 minutes a day but hard, then id say 6 or 7 months. me personally it's taken 4 months to become comfrotable wit my handles. but i know i can be so muich better so im trying hard every day. ok so id say 6 months until ur 1 of the better ball handlers u know, and then many months after that till ur the best ball handler u know (out of ur group of friends or somethin or your team)
no,no,no your getting it all wrong i said i have to go longer, adn do more sets, but your funny though i like the sarcasm, but what drills did you do? i'm just looking for insight and knowledge thats all, i wasn't trying to be disrescpectful, cause people will say they practice five hours a day but are messin around thats all.
no disrespect dude but it dont matter what workouts u do if u dnt work your butt off 30 mins. a day at least u r never going too be as great as u could be, do you know what derrick rose had too do too become the player he is now?
1,000 shots, 6 days a week for the whole summer now that is hard work basketball is a sport where u cant expect it too be given too you,you gotta work so hard that you know you will get better.
okay what is all of this nobody is even answering my question, and you guys don't even know me saying i don't go hard, i spent about ten minutes working on ball handling, i put up five hundred shots in the morning five hundred at night and i do about five miles runing so please with that, please someone who has improved their dribbling can you answer my question? thank you.
if you really want too become a good dribbler you will work for more then 10 mins. just saying... and what i do is just dribble normally for 30 mins. for each hand, not anything special but it works.
it take a long time like 2 or 3 day beause u will have to knoe how to drible wit 2 hand thru ur leg also u have to knoe how to make the ball stay below ur waist. make shore u dont make the ball *** of ur feet. i play for 2 school so i knoe how long it take because we do drill and we learn evrything bout drilling and thru ur legs and learn how not the make the ball go over ur shoulder when it do it call carry and i got basketball game 2k11 2k10 2k09
Are you doing any cone work with your drills?? Like crossovers, in/outs, hesitations, between the leg etc (if you don't have cones you can improvise)?? Those are basic drills that you can do, say 2-3 mins each. You'll have to be consistent for a few weeks to see some kind of improvement, are you playing in any games to test your skills? All I can say is keep at it and maybe add some more drills to your workout. Don't get discouraged as you need to push your body in order to see any results. Good luck.
