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.
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.
