Be creative with your fitness sessions.  Cross training has a huge benefit.  Try this workout to get your heart pumping and it is great with a buddy or two too.  Begin under the backboard on a basket court, and make layup.  Start the clock when the ball leaves the shooter’s hand.  Sprint to where mid-court meets sideline, cut back to the basket receiving a pass inside three point line, make a shot, and touch baseline.  Repeat on opposite side of court.  This is one rep.  Clock stops when athlete makes the fifth shot.  The goal is to make 5 shots in less than 30 seconds.  Switch it up and repeat for four reps each person.  Not a good shooter, make all five shots layups.  Looking for a challenge or maybe you are a risk taker, jack up some threes and watch this workout’s intensity sky rocket.
