Running 3 miles non stop is decent cardiovascular shape. Once you can do that, practice running the full length of a court, alternating layups, 3 pointer, and jumpshot on each trip down to either end.

Thanks man. When you mean running 3 miles do you mean literally running, or do you mean jogging 3 miles?

Also, do I need to lift weights as well?
