How to shoot more accurately?

The BEEF shooting principle was introduced by retired ABA star Georg Lehman. It is not only suitable for beginner basketball players for basic shooting training, but also allows experienced players who have developed shooting skills to use it. I personally think that mastering this principle is especially important for shooting partners in one movement.

The four letters in BEEF represent four principles respectively: B-Balance [Balance], E-Eyes [Line of Sight], E-Elbow [Elbow], F-Follow [Follow Action], BalanceThe principle was explained to everyone yesterday, and today skill master will take everyone after Curry to learn [Eyes] and [Elbow] in principle of beef shooting

【Eyes】Line of sight principle:

When shooting, aim at front of basket, you can find three hooks on basket like Curry

Then aim for hook in middle: firstly, this will allow you to have a more accurate target instead of looking at entire basket to shoot; second, aiming at front of basket will cause you to unknowingly improve your radian shot.

By looking at front of basket, you can increase arc of shot, and higher arc of shot, more likely it is to hit net:

The shot needs to have an arc, with front edge higher than back edge, so we'll naturally increase our arc, and shooting from back edge of frame won't have this effect:

[Elbow] Elbow principle:

Step 1: The elbow of shooting arm should be in a straight line with shoulder and hip, allowing force transmitted from body to gradually rise in that straight line as you shoot.

Let's zoom in on Kobe in slow motion:

The arm of shooting arm must be straight up and down, and elbow must not be turned out like a chicken wing:

After elbow is turned out, it will greatly affect power of your shooting. Not only will this make you inaccurate, but it will also prevent you from shooting far. Let's take a look at a demonstration of elbow twist when shooting:

Second step: The old adage that elbow should be at 90 degrees when throwing, i.e. when throwing, angle between elbow joint of a basketball in ready position (when you aim at basket) is 90 degrees, but in fact it is very difficult It can be done, try to get closer to this angle, it may be a little less than this angle (above 70 degrees), if it is too small, your elbow will move too much and shooting stability will be reduced, if it is too large, force trajectory will be shortened, and shooting distance will be shorter, and arc will be reduced:

This is especially important when shooting in one motion. Thanks to this, your shots will have a good mechanical angle, and you will be able to shoot curves with a large arc. In addition, maintaining a relatively fixed pose is very important for shooting stability. Of course, here's explanation: If you're shooting in two motions, it's basically impossible for you to achieve a 90-degree elbow angle, because shooting in two motions is almost entirely upper body based, and usually less so. than 90 degrees to keep more strength.

You can see that Kobe's elbow angle is much less than 90 degrees, but note that his purpose for doing it more is to prepare to send ball further back, making it harder for defenders to stop him. will raise elbow to eye level to compensate for very small angle of elbow, reduce distance of elbow travel, and maintain a very high drop point height.

But this is not for needs of ordinary people, so for ordinary amateurs, whether shooting in one movement or two movements, it is very necessary to keep angle of the elbow as close to 90 degrees as possible, but two Moyton shots could be a little less.

Next, Mr. Skills will present a very useful practical method: hold a basketball between your forearm and shoulder

Just practice shooting with your elbow and find that feeling:

Hitting ball, even throwing ball between elbows at end of a workout, can habitually maintain an angle of almost 90 degrees:

Okay, explanation of principles of [Eye] and [Elbow] is here, and today I will explain it to you

The two principles [E] in BEEF rule and last principle [F] will follow closely together. You can pay attention to Skills Jun and leave a message about basketball skills you want to learn.
