with Alan Stein,
Professional Basketball Strength Coach
and owner of StrongerTeam.com;
Strength & Conditioning Coach, Montrose Christian (MD) High School
Coach Stein is known nationwide as an expert in basketball training. A common theme of Stein's workouts is the use of a tennis ball. Playing catch with the inside hand while running the length of the floor is an example of using the tennis ball. Behind the back with the outside hand, step slide, throw with trail hand and adding a second ball adds variety, and difficulty, to these drills. Using the tennis ball as the focus, Stein demonstrates over 15 drills and exercises that are geared toward improved reaction, quickness, agility, mental focus, competitiveness, dynamic flexibility and the ability to communicate with teammates.
