Cross Train to Improve Your Conditioning

In addition to basketball, condition training like swimming and bike riding can improve your game on the court. Training outside of basketball can be useful because you work out different muscles.

For example, bike riding can be a great way to strengthen and condition the muscles in your thighs which are crucial to hold a defensive position. Swimming can be a great way to improve endurance on the court. Never slow down on those fast breaks!

Also, don’t be afraid to try some yoga. Yoga will strengthen your core and increase flexibility, which will help you avoid injuries. Join a class at a local gym or buy a DVD to try in your bedroom. Heck look up some yoga YouTube videos for free. Many of basketball’s elite practice yoga on a daily basis, including Kevin Garnett. Try it out today!
