Hi, this is Sean Hobson. One of the most important things that you want to do is to try to find a way to get the basketball skills that you use everyday in practice into your conditioning. Now one thing you've got to do is you want to condition in every practice, so what we try to do is we try to use as many basketball skills so that they are working on the skill at the same time as conditioning. One thing you're going to see us do right here is a shooting drill that we have each guy going at full speed. We have a rebounder and a shooter. We call this low, medium, and high. What we're talking about is, when we go to the low shooting, we want these guys to shoot like around the block, and not much more out of this area. That's their low shooting. They're going to shoot there for about a minute and a half. Then they'll go to medium range shooting, which is somewhere around the free throw line and the wing. And then we go long range. If you're a post player, your long range doesn't get much outside the wings and the free throw line. If you're a three point shooter, that's when you're going to drop back behind the three point line. But what's going to happen is one shooter will shoot for a full minute and a half, and then we'll switch up and let the other guy for a minute and half. You're either going to be rebounding or shooting, but you go at game speed for that whole time, and it takes up a whole ten minute period, and after ten minutes they get great conditioning and good shooting. We're going to show you briefly what this looks like at full speed. Let's go medium range, guys. Medium range. All right, go. So you see they're shooting, one guy's rebounding, kicking the ball out, they're in constant motion, they never shoot from the same spot at any point in time. See how they call for the ball. They're in constant movement. It's a great way to get the shooting and conditioning done at the same time. It's a great drill for your practice to work out the players and also work on your shooting.
