In this short talk I explain the reasoning behind training athletic coordinations.
Here I analyze a coordination I have learnt from my teachers in dance and martial arts and how I connect it to a basketball shot.
In this one you see how a loop is created that works on:
- first step
- loaded foot positioning of the back foot
- back step
- positioning of the feet before the shot
- moving again after a smooth landing
I hope this helps you in understanding why we use more complex coordinations in our athletic development model – and how you can figure this one out yourself.
Here’s the coordination clip by itself:
Don’t worry if it takes you some sessions to learn it, we always spend more than one practice on these.
