Drill of the Week

In this warm up shooting progression, NBA Shooting Coach John Townsend demonstrates a great way to specifically warm up for distance shooting.

You can watch John’s first “Basic Warm Up Progression” here.

For the full distance warm up, check out the breakdown below: 

In this progression, John focuses on 3 drills:

  1. High Start
  2. High Quick
  3. High Quick / Regular Alternate

As John emphasizes, a big part of this warm up is your hand placement and establishing a solid base to ultimately incorporate into game situations.

Whether you’re working with a Dr. Dish or not, this is a great progression to try out before starting your shooting workout.
