Default Re: How do you get Hops?

Sincere advice - don't.

It is unlikely that you will ever get enough that it seriously helps your basketball game. All it does it stress your body out to overtrain that one area of physical development.

Instead, the easiest way to get the highest "most natural" hops is simply to get your weight down and to add box jumps and light jump roping (not too excessive either).

Work on your ball handling. This one skill helps you way more than any other at the for fun level of basketball. Being able to confidently dribble anywhere, create separation, etc will really take your game many levels higher.

As a bonus, usually if you practice a lot of ball handling you will become a better shooter too since you are more comfortable with the ball in your hands.
