Train Like an NBA Star

Take your game to the next level with this five-day strength, speed, and agility workout


DAY 2: Evan Fournier
Speed and Agility Workout

WORKOUT INSTRUCTIONS

Steve says: Participate in these drills at 100% effort except the 6’s in which you should pace yourself so that you don’t go anaerobic too soon. For example, if you're trying to hit 36 seconds, we're looking to do an up and back in 12 seconds.  If we're looking to do 33-second 6’s, we're looking to do an up and back in 11 seconds.  All speed and agility drills should be completed on a basketball court.
