September 14, 2007, Newsletter Issue #312: Medicine Ball Drills

Tip of the Week

Medicine balls are a very good way to develop muscular strength specific to basketball. You can simulate the exact movements in basketball with a variety of exercises. An effective workout with medicine balls can be achieved in about 30 to 40 minutes, if the athlete works efficiently. Each session should be made up of 8 to 10 exercises with the athlete performing 2 to 3 sets of each exercise. If the athlete is to develop strength and muscular endurance then conduct 6 to 12 repetitions (reps) of each exercise. If the athlete is to develop muscular endurance rather than strength, then conduct 12 to 30 repetitions with a lighter ball.
