Muscle and Motion

Proper weightlifting technique: Deadlift

Deadlift the right way!

Starting position: The bar is above the feet, close to the shin bone. The shoulders are slightly in front of the bar.

Pulling the bar close to the body requires assistance and stabilization by the latissimus dorsi. Keep the core muscles activated and the back straight.

The deadlift can be divided into two stages. 1️⃣2️⃣

The first stage:
1️⃣Lifting the bar to knee level.
This is done mainly through knee extension.
The trunk remains in a forward-leaning position.

The second stage:
2️⃣Full extension of the hip and the knee until the body is fully straightened.

In this video, we can see a common mistake which many people are doing.

Throughout the exercise, keep the back in a neutral position.
Even when we bend down, we will keep the same back position as when we are standing erect!

In this position, the core muscles work together with the greatest efficacy, and protect the spine‼️

Guard Play 1.0
Great Players Make Players Around Them Look Good or Better.

Question: How do I make the players around me better and look good?

Answer: The best way to start making players look good is to create assist or opportunities for them to score points.

Encourage other players to get in positions where you can pass to them or assist them in scoring points.

Note: Keep your Promise. Make sure you follow through with your promise to pass them the ball when they are open. Other wise, next time you won't receive the ball from them when you have the opportunity to score. "BAD KARMA" :0(

The Result: You will gain trust & notoriety from your coach and other players on the court or field. They will recognize you as an unselfish player. Most people do not like to play with or be around selfish players. To become an "unselfish player " you have to be willing to go the extra mile for your team or create opportunities for yourself and for other players to score points Lastly, simply execute.
1. Penetrate to the basket then Pass the ball to an open "Jump shooter" on the perimeter at the right time, instead of taking a "forced shot" can be a sign of an unselfish play.
2. Looking for your teammates up the court during the fast break and passing them the ball to score an easy layup, instead of dribbling the ball to the rim full court is a sign of team play and great basketball awareness.
3. Having this understanding that the game is won by a collective effort, is key to the success of any player, team, or organization. Use this mindset and you will go along way in the game of basketball(and life).

Basic Training
Taking High Percentage shots will improve your shooting percentage.
What are High Percentage shots?
High Percentage shots are close range shots or shots that have a higher chance or probability of going in or being made by the shooter.
During practice or pregame warm ups its important for shooters to take close range shots before taking long range shots in order to score high on accuracy ratings.
Start shooting high percentage shots and you will definitely see an improvement in your shooting percentage.

Basic Training 1.0
Shooting Drills
Ways to improve your shooting percentage?
1. Start shooting the "High Percentage" shots such as shots taken 1-3 feet from the "Bucket". This means start your practices or pregame warm ups with Close Range Shooting. Don't come into the firing up 3 pointers and half court shots expecting yourself to an On Game or Big time shooting night with no missed baskets. It's rare for most shooters to come out firing up shots and making them all during games and practices without having warmed up with shooting the " easy" close range shots first. If you can't make a simple layup consistently what makes you think you can make threes and never miss a shot. That is completely ludicrous. Simply start in and around the basket and work your way out from there.
Below is an video or example of close range shots : 1-3 feet from the basket or just outside the " Key".

What is creating a lead ?
In basketball terms , creating a lead starts with Moving or Playing without the basketball in your hands. Having to play without the ball in your hand requires:
1. Putting yourself or being in the right position on Offense and on the court were your teammates can " feed you " or pass you the ball so that you may score points.
2. It also means you have to use specific moves or footwork in order to position yourself to receive the ball from your teammates.
3. Creating a lead also means in most cases not standing still. Usually players start from point A then to Point B and sometimes point C depending on the type offensive plays and/or type of defense your opponent displays.

[08/08/17]   "All hard work brings profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty"- Proverbs 14:23
This is a reminder to us all that we must ,consistently, work hard and try to master our craft. Do your best to not let a day go by without having done something that will improve your chances of winning on the court or on the field.

Edmond Athletics: Basic Training : Guard Play 1.0

Basic Training: Guard Play 1.0

The key to great ball handling is repetition, strength, speed, hand and eye coordination, or dexterity. One of the most powerful drills to perform or practice is the "Finger Tip Drill". There are several drills or actions you can perform but the single most important one for beginners are the "stationary finger tip drills". Start in a Triple Threat Position" with hand and eyes up , toes pointed forward, weight distributed evenly on both feet and directly bent over with chest up in a squatted position. This exercise or ball handling drill is an excellent strength builder for the core muscles and trains your mind and body to remain in a athletic stance or 'ready for action' position. Try this exercise/ball handling drill a few times and tell me what you think...

[02/23/17]   3 important aspects of great shooters that you should incorporate into your game 1.Balance - establish the balance you need to have a more accurate and strong shot by using the strength of your legs and keeping you knees bent to gain power when you raise up to shoot. 2. Follow through- extend your elbow and wrist with each shot will give your shot power and accuracy. 3. Release - aim for a quicker release when taking a shot. This enables you to have more time to prevent your shot from being blocked, which gives you an advantage over your defender.

THE WEST COAST DEFENDERS - basketball academy, coaching

3 things to focus on while playing man to man defense. 1. remain in a ready position, which means being in a 'triple threat' position 'or defensive stance'. 2. defend with you feet , not with your hands. It's important to slide your feet, and run to the position to prevent your opponent from beating you off the dribble. 3. focus on the midsection. your vision should not be on the ball handlers dribbling but on the ball handlers , midsection. This is the main part of the body that remains consistent and does not change direction during ball and/or body movement. Remember: "Follow the midsection , not the ball". -- Coach Malachi Edmond www.thewestcoastdefenders.com

2. Wind Sprints: 20-40 yard dash 10 reps is a great starting point for the volume of work.
3. Ladder drills: invest in an agility ladder or get with one of trainers or coaches and we can teach you the proper techniques for using the Ladder drill. The ladder requires focus and attention to foot placement, knee, hip, shoulder and/or joint movement in the proper manner. There are tons of drills you can do on the ladder to increase your foot speed, but most importantly it has do be done correctly and with effort towards building up your speed.
