How To Improve Your Ball Handling At Home

In today's video we are going to show you how to easily improve your ball handling at home with a simple but effective routine.

When doing this stationary ball handling routine it is key to remember these 3 keys:

– Dribble the basketball hard
– It's okay to lose the ball
– Keep your head up

The great thing about this ball handling routine is that it can be done anywhere because minimal room is needed. Which means, even on days you can't get in a gym, you can still easily perform this workout in your basement, garage, or outside.

The moves that you are going to work on in this stationary series will prepare you for real game moves. But don't forget that in order to have elite handles in games you must also practice ball handling drills when you are moving.

I love stationary ball handling drills to do everyday and as warm ups however it shouldn't be the only way that you train your handles.

For the drills in this video, you are to do every dribble in reps of 20.

If you want to work on your weak hand more (which I highly recommend) then feel free to double the reps on that weak hand.

Once this becomes second nature you will start to see massive improvements in your handles and your game.

Ball handling is all about comfort which is built through repetition. There is a reason why Stephen Curry has his stationary ball handling routine that he does before each and every game.

One – is that it works, and two – is that it makes him extremely comfortable when preparing for a game.

This routine here can easily be done before games, as well, to warm up your handles so that they are primed for in game success.
