Hello, how about you? Don't just learn offensive moves while playing basketball! What a top player needs is both offense and defense. Therefore, ability of personal protection is very important! KBT Advanced Basketball Workout Today! I will teach you two important aspects of perimeter defense. Take you to be defensive vanguard!
1. Improve your gliding speed When defending half court, your gliding speed determines quality of your defense! Lots of brothers on slide. They are used to touching ground with side of sole of foot.
This increases friction between soles of feet and ground, resulting in a slower sliding speed. The correct way to slide should be to have toes of walking foot point to side. And every time you take a step, you must first touch ground with your heel, and then transfer effort to your toes,
Scroll forward. In this way, your sliding force will be continuous, and speed of lateral movement will be higher. Also, when sliding, never lift your legs too high. Otherwise, sliding and sliding will turn into a happy bouncing.
When you hear your soles rubbing against ground as you move sideways, it means that you have mastered essence of sliding.
2. Increase hip rotation speed. Most people know that when attacking, you need to attack front leg of opponent. Because in this way defender must first turn around with his hips, and then slide, and speed of following defense will be greatly reduced.
But really, as a defender, if you turn your hips fast enough, even if your opponent attacks your front leg. You can also catch up with each other. Brothers can usually improve hip flexibility with continuous and massive hip jumping exercises.
Once you've mastered skills, practice hip twist and slide. Place two obstacles behind you, one on left and one on right. Touch obstacle by moving your hips to sides. Finally, return to middle. Cross over to other side by turning your hip again! When exercising, speed of rotation of hip and sliding step should be as fast as possible.
When you can do these two parts of gliding step well, your following speed will improve qualitatively! Breaking through enemy and changing direction will not be difficult to defend!
