Basketball weight training should focus on the entire body. This means that in addition to a basketball upper body workout, you should also do a basketball leg workout. It also implies that you should work the opposing muscle groups in addition to the muscles you are working.

It also implies beginning with your foundation, which includes stability, coordination, technique, and form. If you're not moving efficiently, you're setting yourself up for injury and pain later on.

Basketball weight training should not be limited to movements performed on the court. It should also concentrate on the muscles and joints that support those movements, as well as their efficiency.

Use proper form. Take time to learn how to properly perform each exercise. Lifting weights effectively requires you to move through the entire range of motion without pain. The better your form, the less likely you are to injure yourself. If you can't maintain good form, reduce the weight, or the number of repetitions. Remember that proper form is important even when picking up weights or returning them to the rack.

If you're unsure whether you're performing an exercise correctly, seek advice from a personal trainer or other fitness professional.

Please consult with a doctor before starting any workout or fitness program. This is especially important if you haven't exercised in a long time, if you have any health concerns, if you're pregnant, or if you're an older adult. Please speak with your doctor to determine the amount of exercise that is appropriate for you.
