    For conditining, runkillers, for those you run from baseline to free throw line, back, baseline to half court, back, baseline to other free throw line, back, baseline to baseline, and back. those will really help you to improve your conditioning. As for ball handling, the best thing for me is just bounce the basketball as much as you can, play the game as much as you can, that's the only way to get better. Any questions, please email me

    In Tamago, we play every day all together. The best for training yourself, is to improve your edurance first. After that, by playing a little bit every day, you will improve your basketball. Good luck !

    Well, throughout my career the best conditioning I ever did on my own was sprinting up hills. The best is to find a steep incline that goes for about 50 meters. Sprint up, walk down, sprint up, etc. This by far is the best for cardio and building your legs. The goal is to build stamina and recovery time. So in the beginning, walk slowly down the hill after a sprint up, but try and build it to where you can jog back down, hit the bottom, and take off sprinting back up. It will take some time to get there, but once you're there, you will know you are in shape.

    The second thing I would do is jump rope. Jumping rope teaches you how to be on your toes, gives you better timing, and builds stamina as well.

    For strength I would do pushups every day, again buiding up each day to try and do one or two more each set. I would also do pullups. Second, build your core strength with various abdominal-tightening exercises, but make sure you are performing them correctly. ( look online for these )

    Look online also for dribbling drills that you could do on your own ( there is a ton of excercises out there ), and for rebounding too.

    Good luck!

    Yo, what up fools?: It's me, " THE MAN " , Zac Ryan. Even though I'm a cartoon character, I can still ball chump! So if you like basketball, then come check me out and read all my comic strips at:

    Kayde, I know your situation, because I was there when I was younger.  That's why I created a basketball training site for young athletes, with videos, drills, and information to get better.  You can check it out at, or message me for tailored workouts.
