– Hey, what’s up guys? Coach Rock here, the official trainer for I Love Basketball TV. In today’s video, I’m gonna be showing you how you can improve your conditioning so that you can get in the
best shape of your life and the best shape, the
shape that is needed to play at a high level. Being in good shape is gonna prevent you from getting injured
because a lot of injuries come when we’re tired. And our mind and body
is just so exhausted, we take a wrong step here
and we sprain our ankle. We take a wrong step here, tweak our knee. Being in better shape is gonna
help you stay injury-free. The problem is a lot of players don’t know how to train to get in shape. That’s because a lot of coaches these days just make your run thousands of sprint and think it’s gonna get you in shape. Running sprints is good to get
in shape, don’t get me wrong. But you also have to take into account the other phases of basketball. It’s just not all a sprinting game. You’re not just sprinting
up and down the whole game. A lot of it is walking. A lot of it is jogging. A lot of it stopping. There’s time out. There’s free throws. So, we have to train our body to be able to recover quickly so that we can stay in the shape needed for basketball player. A basketball player doesn’t
need to be in the shape of a cross-country runner
and doesn’t need to be in the shape of 100-meter sprinter. You have to be somewhere
kind of in between that area and a sub-mix of a lot of things you need. And I was talking to one of
our trainers the other day, Coach Andy, you guys have seen
him on our channel before. And I was asking him
what were his thoughts about basketball conditioning. And I want to get his kind of perspective before I shot this video. And he said, “Rock, honestly, the only way to really get in basketball shape is by playing basketball at a high level.” So, if you’re just playing
in open gym and stuff, that’s not gonna get you
in the best shape possible because think about
how many times open gym two or three games in guys
are walking the whole time? Nobody is running. Nobody is going hard. So, you want to be able to
play basketball at a high level for as much as you can. But, let’s say you can’t do that. You can still get in good basketball shape by doing drills that
simulate basketball shape just standing around, shooting
around the three-point line and then running some
sprints isn’t gonna get you in the shape needed to play
basketball at a high level. That’s why I’m shooting
this video for you right now so that you can implement
this whether you’re at home, you’re at your own gym,
whatever the case may be. But you can actually
get in the shape needed to play at a high level. So, when tryouts come
around, you’re the guy that’s in the best shape. Or when practice comes
around, you outlast everybody. When games come around, fourth quarter, you have the extra
burst, that extra energy when everybody else is gasping for air. Let’s get straight into it. (explosive sound) Alright, so like I said, the key with getting in basketball shape is again, playing
basketball at a high level. Going through full game speed situations. But if you can’t do that,
you’re not gonna get in shape just by standing around shooting shots and then running sprints. No part of the game or
basketball is like that. You sprint every now and then
but the game of basketball, you sprint maybe for five seconds. You stop, you set up a play, you score. You run, you jog back on the time out. So, you gotta train your body to deal with these type of recovery times (loud bang) and this type of rates of speed. So, what we’re gonna do
here is we’re gonna sprint while dribbling. Again, this is all game specific. Sprinting while dribbling here. (ball dribbling sound) But we we’re not gonna do a
lot of people that would do. They just sprint back
and forth with the ball. We’re not gonna do that here. What we’re now gonna do when we get here, we’re gonna stop and we’re gonna act like we’re handling the
ball against defense. So again, we’re not stopping
but we’re not going too fast, we’re also not going too slow. When you come here, we get back up here, we’re gonna act like we’re running a play. So, come here. Act like you’re getting
a pick set for you. Come in off the pick,
maybe head in a pull up get in to the rim. Finishing. From there, you’re just gonna jog. I know this is a lot of
pieces, but you’re just jogging real slow, nothing crazy. Jogging. Then you’re walking to the free throw line to shoot a free throw. That’s your break. If you’re too tired, you
can skip the free throw. You don’t have to shoot the free throw. And you can do a few sets of these to help you get in shape. And you can see the
different variations we have. We have sprinting. Jogging. We have going semi-hard on basketball dribbling the ball up the court. We have walking. We have taking a break. So, this drill right
here is gonna simulate everything needed to get in
shape for real basketball games. (electrocution sound) Now the cool thing, if you have a partner that can also help with your rest periods so you can go to full thing hard. And then you could take a quick break while your partner goes through it because that break you
take is gonna be about maybe 20 to 30 seconds which
would be the amount of time probably taken for a player
to shoot two free throws or 30-second time out. So, everything we’re doing is
simulating real game speed, real game breaks, everything. And this is why you’re gonna
get in basketball shape versus just running
sprints back and forth. (electrocution buzz sound) (slow techno music) (electrocution buzz sound) So as you could see, I’m wended just training my body in good conditioning to get in basketball shape. But this drill also teaches
you to play a game speed. You can’t sprint the whole way. You can’t go hard all the time. You gotta go hard, slow down. You gotta walk, change
speeds, control the tempo. This drill is gonna train all of that. (electrocution buzz sound) I hope you enjoyed today’s video. Guess what? I have a free basketball training program. Yes, a full program that

    How many times should a High School age rookie, (who is also new to the sport), do this a day or so?

  2. I like this vid! What can I do to prevent my Achilles from ripping? It sometimes pop especially if I'm leaning for something unexpectedly.

  3. RockinWit2kSince03 LEGEND

    This is stupid, just do sprints and you'll get in basketball shape, basketball is a lot like hiit training so the best way to get in basketball shape is to play basketball or do sprints in intervals

  4. khymlexious KaUser

    Hi Coach! Learned so much from your videos! By the way, I'm 43yo and just playing basketball as my regular exercise. Thanks a lot man!

  5. from my personal experience, stop masturbating too much. you get far better if you stop it permanently or atleast once a month.

  6. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. The penalty for our sin is eternal suffering, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our savior. He loved us so much he gave his only son, Jesus, to die for our sins. Whosoever believes in him should not perish but have life everlasting. Ask for forgiveness, believe in Jesus, and repent from your sins. You can be forgiven.

  7. Thanks coach🙏🏽🏀. A lot of people out their really needed this vid.❤️🏀 I’m 5”5 and my speed is faster. I was 5”4 and I was slow.

  8. I like it all of your training but my problem we dont have a basketball court in my land beacuse every BBcourt here he need to pay no facilities compare your land. From manila bulok english

  9. I’ve always been a consistently good basketball player playing all 4 quarters and today I went to the park and got beat 11 to 1 against a random kid who I knew I could beat. Thanks to him I came to this video cause I was gassed halfway through the game lol

  10. Hey y'all (Coach amd you viewers) I need y'all help ! .. I'm 6'7 and 367lb ! I know fatass lol….anyway I love ballin' out and I've got the passion and some dope moves……problem is I get gassed super easy and look for a sub !!

    How can I drop some serious weight and get my fitness up?? Hope someone can help me out

  11. This is actually stupid. He said sprints don’t help? If you’re only sprinting 5 seconds at a time in a game, then sprinting for 30 seconds 30 times will put you in elite level shape.

  12. How many sets DO you guys complete? I'm gonna add this to the can't be guarded workouts I've been doing. Kinda Eager to see what is the ideal # of sets (opinion) is for guys that do this drill on regular basis in addition to their drill, etc.!

  13. mr. caine's suits

    appreciate what you do, would love to see more videos like this that work whole game/combo drills for older players to maintain their game when we don't necessarily have the same amount of time as a young kid or teenager

  14. This may be all but it lacks defensive drills. Maybe we could add one right after attacking the basket then proceed to jogging then free throw

  15. Rudy Lee Cheong Lem

    Hello Coach! I intend to do this drill at the end of my practice. How mnuch do you recommend me doing please for optimal results?

  16. Im just tired of this useless fake stuff this channel posts most of it is filled with things that we know, and it wont get us better, we all know that the real stuff are in those expensive training tutorials. Its just kind annoying tbh

  17. 1. Stretch every day for flexibility
    2. After every workout run a 17 back and forth sprint on the sideline, rest for 30 seconds, run 15, decrease by two every time etc.
    3. Run a half mile in any direction and come back the same way.
    And most importantly, please keep your body right and eat right please

  18. Zeynabturk Suleyman

    I watch all his videos but he always talks like he’s coaching guys. I get it tho, he coaches guys more. But damn I love it when he roasts the guys

  19. I have to get in shape as little as two months. It might be impossible, but ima try to my ability to have better conditioning that I had ever

  20. What if I’m a big man and I barely dribble like the most movement I get is occasionally playing power forward

    Ignore the name

  21. I'm going to try this. I just bought a basketball after not playing for years!! I moved to France so these french people aren't gonna be ready for me out in the park. This is me on Instagram @tinaewhittaker thank you for this video. Subscribed!! ( a year ago but just getting started)

  22. I'm here to get in shape for practice, not for the games. It's rediculous, 5 practices a week no time for recovery, and we might as well be a cross country team

  23. Basketball is life.

    There are never ending things to switch up your workouts and make them more creative and interesting.

    Wish I landed on this video before.

    Definitely gonna do this tomorrow!

  24. WE should do this in basketball. WE have to do drills, like make 100 jumpshots in 5 minutes while running up and down the court. And if we dont make it we have to run up and down the court 3 times down and back in 30 seconds and if you can't make it you run a suicide in 28 seconds. It's ahrd for me because I'm overweight. I never been in a gym before this year so it sucks.

  25. I played ball 03-07. No resources like this. The talent today is insane…BUT my little cousin is an all-leaguer and still cant be ya boy cuz of that lockdown D and physical offense era I came from.

  26. I’m not sure who said this but I want you guys to think about this, some guy once said “there’s 2 things that are going to happen if you and me get on a treadmill, 1 you’re going to get off or 2. I’m going to DIE on that treadmill”.
