Preston Greene is the Strength and Conditioning Coordinator for the University of Florida Men’s Basketball team. In the clip below, he shows you a series of plyometric drills that use a medicine ball. Plyometric drills are good because they allow the body to mimic the movements that occur during vertical jumps.

Plyometric Drills

Athlete Movements: The drills feature forward, backward and lateral jumps.

Teaching Points: Coach Greene states that it is important to train for strength in the weight room before doing these drills.

The previous clip can be seen on Championship Productions’ DVD “AAU Basketball Skills Series: Increasing Your Vertical Jump.” View the latest video selections on Plyometric Training.
