But the story behind such moves to expertise ball handling is different. This article would acquaint you with basic workouts to handle a ball. Before starting a workout you must make sure you spend at least a couple of hours per day. Dribbling is the basic workout for a basketball aspirant.

Do dribble

When you dribble you should never apply your full control over the ball. You must dribble in a way that the ball should be in contact with your fingers but not with your palm. In fact, palm would slow down your dribbling process but fingers would give you longer dribble. When you dribble your eyes should be up, the ball should jump within waistline.

Speed Dribbling:


Speed dribbling is where you have to incline your body front. This posture would be similar to your body when you run. It is just like your position when you are running. You should push the ball before you and not on the side of your body.

This is similar to bongo except   two dribbles in front ,then enfold hands around legs and dribble behind legs.
