Every good athlete needs a great dynamic warm-up to perform their best and to avoid unnecessary injuries. Even if the warm-up is brief, but dynamic and gets the body to a sweat, you’re just about ready for game time.

Just remember, if you’re going to make the most of your Spokane fitness routine, or play in the worlds biggest 3 on 3 Basketball tournament (aka Hoopfest), then be sure to warm up with our quick and effective Hoopfest Dynamic Warm UP:

Now that you’re warm. Exercise with similar strength and plyometric movements for your sport. You can use one of our excellent >> strength and fat burning workouts << , or take on the simple routine below.

Working on Your Basketball Fitness, Anywhere Style…

Basketball is clearly a sport revolving around plyometric and agile movements. For seasoned basketball players, jumping around is second nature. However, for most Hoopfest players, the inner-Michael Jordan is only let out June 28th and 29th.   Ultimately, this leads to a week of sore, achy muscles and risk of potential injury. To avoid this agony, start jumping around no later than two or three weeks prior to Hoopfest.

Start with the basics. First, warm up with movement until sweating occurs. This can be going for a run, walk, bike, doing jumping jacks or dancing around. Next, find a step, and hop on to it. Repeat this plyometric exercise 15 times, rest a minute or two and repeat two more times. Finish by shooting around and stretching thoroughly. Repeat this activity every 72 hours and add a step and an additional set of hops, followed by shooting around and stretching.
