Default Re: Free throw routine?

As a result, that's been my free throw routine ever since, and I've had excellent results, as I shot 87% from the stripe my junior year.

-Both feet up to the line
-Wide stance
-Body directly in middle of paint
-3 comfortable dribbles

I think its different for everybody. man ppl need to understand, its all about repetition. and just finding what works for ya.
