30 Second Workout Drill: Speed Dribble Power Move

30 Second Workout Drill: Speed Dribble Power Move
By Hal Wissel 

     When you anticipate a defender trying to block your layup from behind you can counter by making a one-two stop and power move. This challenging drill combines the use of speed and reverse dribbles, one-two stops, shot fakes and power moves. The drill consists of alternately driving from each elbow (the intersection of the foul line and lane line) making a one-two stop and power move when dribbling right and dribbling left.
     Start at the right elbow in a balanced stance with your left foot forward and your right foot back. Drive to the basket using a speed dribble with your outside (right) hand and make a one-two stop landing on your inside (left) foot first. Make an aggressive shot fake. Score with a power move. Catch the ball with two hands and speed dribble out to the left elbow, using your outside (right) hand. Place your inside (left) foot on the elbow and reverse dribble, pulling the ball back toward the basket with your outside (right) hand.

Continue the drill for 30 seconds, alternately driving and making one-two stops and power moves on each side of the basket.
     Record the number of power moves you make in 30 seconds. A good score is seven power moves in 30 seconds. At the completion of the drill shoot two free throws.
