bend knees, power comes from hips.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

have always had trouble generating enough power when shooting beyond the arc. anyone have tips?

single arm shooting drills are importing.. do you do them? they will also help with what LBSS mentioned, using your hips more... but they also improve your 'arm + wrist flick' which is where you can get a ton of power on your jumper - ie the follow through.

it's basically just shooting 'set shots' with one arm from various places on the court. you always "start right under the hoop" then work your way out.. achieving proper release from AT LEAST the free throw line is important. If you build enough power to easily shoot freethrows using this form-shooting drill, you'll have enough power to shoot threes, that's for sure.

edit: and then of course simply taking more shots, with good form, from as far as possible.



this drill can be done with the guide hand down at your side .. it can also be done with the  guide hand in 'position' but not actually touching the ball.

also, this is perhaps the best drill to warmup for games/shooting etc.. I would always just warmup with ~50 or so single arm shots from pretty much right under the basket .. making sure my hips were square, using my legs properly, shooting arm is an L, extend completely through the shot while flicking the wrist.

the best warmup to "wake up your mechanics", IMHO.

I agree with adarq with the one handed method.

But one thing I used to do to increase how to shoot a basketball far, is by standing as far back as possible, at the 3 pointer line or even back and just shoot the ball high and far as I could, the aim was to try and shoot it over the backboard, then when you get closer to the 3 point line, you will use less effort to shoot the 3 pointer and will become easier, I used to stand far end of my garden and try to shoot the basketball on the wall near the second floor window or higher if possible, and it would require alot of leg strength and just push the ball out then coming to 3 point line was easier, so it's also a mental thing, that you think its far.

thanks all. i actually used to do a lot of single armed shooting in the past, funny thing is i think i still am more accurate mid ranged with one arm than two. will try these all out.
